The two most fundamental ways of addressing security before defensive measures are necessary are at the network and system architecture levels.
CarTek Consulting has extensive experience working with network consultants and system developers to ensure that security requirements are accurately identified in the network industrial control system layers and enterprise system architecture levels. CarTek consultants have the expertise to ensure network and system architectures include security controls that cascade for redundancy to provide for robust defense-in-depth solutions (removing single points of failure).
The security consultants at CarTek will review existing network and system architectures and develop recommendations for both strengthening existing security mechanisms and compensating for any inherent security weaknesses. Whether the architecture is for a new or redesigned system, our consultants work with the customer to ensure that appropriate cost-effective security mechanisms are incorporated into the final system design.
CarTek’s consultants have a depth and breadth of experience that allows us to take a comprehensive and practical “real-world” approach to your architecture. In the case of the development and design of network or system security architecture, this background allows our team to work within the context of specific business objectives and network or system security requirements. These controls ensure the system meets requirements for data confidentiality, integrity, and availability while building an in-depth defense that ensures misconfigurations or other vulnerabilities cannot compromise critical systems.
