    Data Security Consulting

    Adaptive Systems Inc is a firm that focuses exclusively on data security and data privacy. With more and more data privacy laws and regulations (i.e. GDPR, CCPA, NY Shield, etc.) going into effect, organizations are struggling to keep up. We can help answer the following questions:

    • Do you know where your sensitive non-public data is?
    • Do you know who has access to your databases and file shares?
    • Are the access controls being reviewed on a regular basis?
    • Are you monitoring privileged users and service accounts that have access to your databases?
    • Are database vulnerabilities reviewed and tested on a regular basis?
    • Have you had any discussions regarding data security with your auditors?
    • What data security gaps have your auditors identified?
    • Do you have a strategy and roadmap to address these gaps?

    Many organizations do not prioritize data security gaps identified by their auditors for a variety of reasons but the main reason we have found is due to the lack of expert knowledge & resources. Adaptive Systems is a firm that focuses exclusively on data security, we can help you develop a strategy and a roadmap by:

    1. Identifying Gaps
    2. Prioritizing Tasks
    3. Deploying and helping manage Technology

    Data Protection Strategies

    Adaptive Systems is made up of security professionals and ex-DBA who understand the complexities of databases as well as the sensitive unstructured data in documents and file systems. Data is your company’s crown jewels and it’s everywhere. It’s not easy knowing where all your data is, how and who is accessing it! Which is why it’s very important to have a holistic approach to data protection.

    Your company’s data protection strategy should include all of the below:

    • Database Activity Monitoring (DAM)
    • User Access Control and Permission Visibility
    • File Activity Monitoring (FAM)
    • DLP (network, end-point and storage/DAR)
    • Vulnerability Assessment (database & files)
    • Data Discovery and Classification
    • Data Encryption, masking, tokenization and security key management

    Many companies are realizing they need help with Data Protection. Not having the skilled resource in the market is no excuse for data breaches. That’s where we come in. Think of us as an extension of your security team.

    We can help you architect and implement as well as manage data protection programs such as DAM, Data Discovery, Vulnerability Assessments, User Access/Entitlements and help you with regulations such as SOX/JSOX, PCI/PII, NYDFS, HIPAA/PHI and GDPR.

    Our team is comprised of ex-DBAs who understand databases and know how data is handled which gives them more insights in to how data should be protected.  It’s not just important to knowing how the tool works but it’s more important to know how and why the data is and that’s where it needs to be protected…and data is everywhere!
