The joint service is structured around a unified governance, risk and compliance (GRC) framework that reflects a human approach, according to Above Security.
 
“In today’s landscape of high-impact cyber threats and skyrocketing cybercriminal activity, businesses have increasing pressure to withstand unexpected security events, avoid threats to corporate and customer data assets, and protect their brands and reputations,” said Ray Georges Chehata, president and CEO of Above Security. “As organizations dive deeper into digital transformation processes, our partnership with Hitachi Data Systems offers North American organizations a security service that will save them costs, secure their operations and strengthen their security posture toward cybercrime.”
 
Security experts from Above Security and Hitachi Data Systems work with companies to learn how they operate and how much risk they can tolerate. Using control frameworks such as ISO and NIST, the team then assesses control maturity and gaps. Based on the results, Above Security and Hitachi Data Systems provide services like security program reviews and designs, IT security governance consulting, risk and control assessments, PCI compliance consulting, vulnerability and application assessments and penetration testing.
