Integrated Information Security

We believe in an integrated approach to information security across your entire enterprise.

Castellan Information Security has unified the various elements of information security into a unified model. In this Integrated Information Security® model the company has a holistic view of the information security spanning cyber as well as physical.

Why an integrated approach?

  1. Issue is too important
    The issue is too important to be left solely with your IT team or rely on technical measures for protection​
  2. Combination of Corporate Security Principles and IT Counter measures​
    IT and Cyber security countermeasures combined with strong Corporate Security Principles - An Information Security Program is required​
  3. Convergence of Information Security across the entire organization​
    Convergence of information security into your culture, governance, policy framework, and performance monitoring is the key​
  4. Information is NOT just digital​
    All forms of information including paper, verbal conversations, and multi-media are at risk - to only focus on one is incomplete

What areas of your organization does an integrated approach apply to?

There are so many new and evolving security threats that for many organizations, it can be overwhelming trying to ensure an organization-wide and comprehensive security strategy is developed, executed and monitored effectively.

Too often organizations are short-sighted focusing only on software and cyber-security solutions that protect their networks, servers and computers. Often resulting in security breaches and other threats to the protection and integrity of the information they wish to protect.

This approach leads to reactionary mitigation to these threats instead of proactive measures that lessen the ability and likelihood of security breaches to the organization. Castellan Information Security can provide a comprehensive integrated security approach that encompasses all areas of your organization including the following areas below.
