Case study

We’re experts in Australian & International security standards

A risk-based approach to strategic roadmap development

A major Australian Government department (“the Department”) undertook numerous system-based security assessments, generating in an extensive number of findings. To help prioritise the resultant security remediation and uplift initiatives, the Department engaged Foresight to develop a strategic roadmap. Foresight applied both a top-down and a bottom-up approach to provide the Department with a holistic, risk-based and pragmatic strategic roadmap. Foresight collaborated with technology and business stakeholders to co-develop the roadmap. The outcome assisted the client with its investment and operational prioritisations while ensuring strategic congruency. The client has since engaged Foresight to provide similar services to its portfolio agencies.

Blending a consultative approach with professional expertise to deliver security assurance services

A leading Australian government department (“the Department”) required security specialists to conduct a myriad of system security assurance services, including security risk assessments and system security plan development. The scale, complexity, and timeframe of this program of work required an innovative and agile response from Foresight’s expert team. A consultative approach was adopted throughout each delivery cycle, commencing with a discovery workshop for each in-scope system to fast-track the delivery timeline. The client noted the assessments undertaken exceeded their expectations. Foresight was and continues to be seen as a trusted advisor.

Applying Australian Government cyber security standards to a major cloud service provider

A major public cloud service provider (“the Client”) engaged Foresight to conduct an Information Security Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment of its cloud-based systems and services. Unlike typical system-specific IRAP assessments, an effective yet holistic approach was necessary to ensure appropriate assurance was achieved. Foresight addressed this complex challenge using a combination of its deep cyber security and cloud technology expertise, as well as a robust assessment methodology to ensure a risk-based and defensible approach was applied. The outcome demonstrated practical and value-add findings and recommendations for the Client. Foresight continues to provide ongoing assessment services for the Client and has been engaged to provide other advisory services.
