Corporate mergers, buy-outs, and takeovers are commonplace. In the process, information systems and procedures from different companies and different environments are suddenly tied together and forced to co-exist. Before making this step, due diligence should include:
- Electronic Discovery – A review of corporate documents & records to ensure that available material is not being hidden or held back
Security Analysis – Before joining systems and sharing proprietary information, Sylint works to provide a comprehensive analysis and overview of network security, compartmentalization, and available pipelines
- Efficiency Review – An assessment of available technology, current, proposed, and potential usage levels, and bottlenecks or roadblocks to the flow of information.
Competitors, hostile employees, crackers, and surfers each present a credible threat to corporate security. Whether electronic or physical, industrial espionage work is commonplace. Common aims are irrecoverable damage, production and communication slowdowns, or discovering future business plans or other revealing, damaging, or embarrassing information. While Sylint has in-depth experience in active engagements, working before an active case develops is simpler and often more effective. Sylint works with companies to develop comprehensive plans for:
- Data Security
- Information Compartmentalization
- Authentication and Ownership
- Data Tracking & Logging
