Security Engineering

Foresight’s security engineering capability has been developed over years of real-world, practical experience working inside some of the world’s largest and most complex private and public organisations. Our team often confronts difficult security problems throughout our day-to-day customer work and provides field-tested techniques to help protect our clients.


Our approach to Security Engineering

Equipped with hands-on experience and up-to-date knowledge of the cyber security landscape. Foresight's Security Engineering practice offers three key points of differentiation:

End-to-end service: We are not limited to identifying security gaps through penetration testing and technical assessments, but also provide hands-on support to organisations to implement controls or remediate deficiencies.

Think like a hacker - Leveraging our penetration testing expertise, we take into account the adversary's perspective when assisting organisations to establish defensive mechanisms.

Technical verification: Moving beyond the "paper-based" approach to evaluating security controls, our technical assessments provide greater efficacy through utilising tools, scripts and custom configuration reviews.

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.

Utilising multi-faceted professional expertise to deliver holistic security assurance, engineering, and advisory services

A leading Australian government department (“the Department”) required security specialists to conduct a review of their Office 365 and Azure cloud environment.

A consultative approach was adopted throughout the delivery cycle, which uncovered the need to leverage Foresight’s technical expertise to conduct security assessments, as well as provide security engineering and advisory services, across the Department’s cloud environment. The scope, complexity, and timeframe of this program of work required an agile response from Foresight’s Security Engineering team...

Value-based and results-oriented technical security engineering services

A recently formed Australian government agency (“the Agency”) required security specialists to assist with a number of security services, including security risk assessments, security control reviews, security control implementation and uplift, and ongoing security operations services. The Agency’s ICT systems are cloud based with number of key systems hosted in Microsoft Azure. Foresight was able to provide both security advisory and engineering assistance to build, uplift and monitor the Agency’s Azure cloud environment. The client noted the engagements undertaken by Foresight were performed to a high standard, well documented so that the client can maintain the new controls delivered and have provided a level of confidence that its security controls are operating effectively.
