IT Security Program Implementation

Our client, a multi-billion dollar global manufacturer, recognized the growing threats of IT hacking, identity theft, and other security issues. The client developed a long term plan to address these threats and reached out to Orion to bring in a highly experienced leader to drive the project forward.

Orion brought in a consultant with extensive experience in implementing global security programs, both from the policy and procedure standpoint and the actual automated tools used by top organizations. We reviewed the project and prioritized key areas, set up a reporting cadence with senior management, and implemented the strategic security vision.

The project is on-going and has already resulted in many accomplishments such as structuring the security team, documenting current state, creating policies, procedures and work instructions, identifying strategic and tactical direction given the global threat landscape, assessing the existing environment for potential risks, performing gap analyses and recommending corrective actions, and working in conjunction with software development teams to ensure SDLC best practices relating to secure code.
