Paliscope supported a large enterprise to protect itself against ransomware attacks
Report with critical areas of concern
One of the largest Enterprises in the Nordics reached out to Paliscope after receiving an alarming cyber security maturity assessment from their auditors. The report highlighted several critical areas of concern.
The Client engaged Paliscope to design a Cyber Security build-up program and help anchor this with Executive Management. Solution
A major global maturity build-up
Initially, we developed a design that would result in a major global and Enterprise-wide maturity build-up over 2-3 years. The design leveraged Paliscope’s experience from several similar build-up programs, and Paliscope delivered a proposed target state, the design of the program, immediate actions, and how key cyber security capabilities should be implemented.
In addition, Paliscope developed a spend analysis to support Executive Management’s funding decision making, and we also interacted with the Board on several occasions to help contextualize cyber risk for the Enterprise.
After facilitating decision making Paliscope’s implementation team spun up the Program Office and placed other experienced project management resources in several of the Program’s key workstreams. In parallel, Paliscope continued to support the Client’s Executive management with key Cyber Security insights.
The execution of the Program continuously balanced the need for short-term effects (protection against ransomware) with securing more long-term and sustainable effects. Result
All key security capabilities were implemented After two years of build-up, the Client had not experienced ransomware (as many of their peers did during this period) and was also independently assessed to be much more robust with all key cyber security capabilities implemented and in line with the target state agreed two years previously.
