CyberSecurity Transformation for a Global Cement Manufacturing Client

Synopsis

The objective of the customer was to improve the overall security posture of their infrastructure. The customer collaborated with Coforge to implement advanced security technologies in order to gain more insights about the looming threats and have defense mechanisms in place to protect the IT infrastructure from new emerging threats.

About the Client

The customer is one of the largest and oldest cement and building material company in Thailand and Southeast Asia.

Business Challenge

Customer wanted a vendor who would define security roadmap for its organization based on the NIST and ISO27K1 standards and be end-to-end accountable for enterprise security. The vendor was required to identify gaps and suggest/implement remediations accordingly. Customer’s infrastructure was spread across countries with no clear visibility. They wanted the vendor to perform asset discovery and baselining as well. Customer had implemented basic security controls in its environment and was looking forward to implement advanced security controls to protect the IT infrastructure. In addition, the customer wanted the vendor to provide Threat and Vulnerability Management services.
