IBM i Security Specialist, Briteskies
Briteskies was contacted after a client's foreign subsidiary's e-commerce site was breached. Our team worked together with the company to formulate a next step plan for how to avoid future breaches by implementing an infosec governance function within the company. Subsequently, the client created a new position with specific focuses based on Briteskies's advisement.
Hired to perform an IBM i security assessment as part of the client's SOX compliance requirements, Briteskies reviewed the clients infrastructure and found vulnerabilities on the IBM i server which had potential to be exploited to gain unauthorized access. Briteskies recommended additional practices and offered guidance on how the client could improve their security authentication, resulting in an overall increase in IT security awareness and insurance.
After a ransomware infestation encrypted numerous PCs within the company, the client was seeking advice as to how best to secure their point of vulnerability. After performing a full information security review, Briteskies sat down with the staff and offered advice and guidance for what to do and how to do it in order to better secure their system, including what products to use and implement for a more formalized information security policy. Additional resources were provided to their IT staff for future education.
