ESP @ Work: Holistic Security as part of the Corporate DNA

“We went through several stages, such as development and implementation of a harmonized security strategy across the organization, gaining greater cross-organization visibility to improve speed to detect, respond and remediate potential issues, and looking at the underlying technology.” – Chief Information Officer, Security Division

Innovative and agile cybersecurity vision leads the way to lowering cyber risk profile.

Overview

ESP’s continuous monitoring and alerting is at the core of the Bank’s holistic approach to security and at the center of their new operations center.

Customer Profile

Universal bank with global reach, offering products and services across personal, corporate and investment banking, credit cards and wealth management. It has operations in over 40 countries and employs approximately 120,000 people.

Problem

This bank’s prominent position in the financial services industry make it a constant target of cyberattacks, as well as online and real-world fraud attempts and the ever-present threat of malicious insiders and accidental data loss. Enabling comprehensive visibility for their entire information security organization was a big priority as they previously had zero visibility into their API layer and the potential risks that existed.

Solution

To organize and combat these threats, this universal bank is transforming its security division with the ultimate aim of having one internal organization capable of responding to the various threats. A key part of their new strategy was to establish a joint operations center that will function 24/7/365. To enable continuous monitoring and alerting for configurations changes in their cloud, the CSO and CIO of the security division deployed Evident.io’s Evident Security Platform (ESP®).

Results

ESP has increased the speed, reliability, and inclusiveness of information sharing, reduced duplication of effort and boosted protection for the bank’s members. With ESP, security analysts not only examine security alerts generated at the bank daily, but are also able to prioritize and coordinate a response to remediate vulnerabilities as they occur.

The security team now has cross function/cross-product visibility and the ability to identify and resolve duplications. Their holistic approach has brought benefits for the security team, has improved operational efficiency, and has demonstrated cost-saving advantages.
