Semita Holdings: Fortifying ITSM and Cybersecurity
“We have observed that businesses are quite lackadaisical about cybersecurity; they consider themselves to be a raindrop on a leaf in the Amazon rainforest, in terms of their probability of being hit by a cyberattack,” begins David Forncrook, Founder of Semita Holdings. Forncrook’s comprehension strongly resonates with organizations that believe ‘anything that isn’t broken doesn’t need to be fixed.’ The reality, however, is the polar opposite. With the surge in cyber threats, it’s more important than ever for businesses to recognize that they need a well-defined and continuous cybersecurity improvement plan in place to protect themselves from and respond to cyberattacks.
Semita Holdings—a cybersecurity and information technology solutions and consulting firm—helps businesses understand the gaps in their cybersecurity measures. The company supports clients in information/cyber security and IT service management by developing appropriate strategies, frameworks, practices, and solutions to safeguard assets such as digital information, networks, hardware, and software from unauthorized access or assaults. The company’s fundamental objective is to help businesses manage cyber and information security risks, threats and vulnerabilities, lest they find themselves unprepared to prevent and respond to attackers. The company distinguishes itself from the rest of the players in the field by providing cyber security solutions and helping clients understand various underlying organizational issues that hackers could exploit. The organization, therefore, assists clients in following secure practices by offering a governance and library of best practices for cybersecurity, GDPR, IT service management, IT skill assessment, and many others.
More than Just a Cybersecurity Solution
In terms of Semita Holdings’ specialties, clients can effortlessly achieve distinct objectives by partnering with the company. Be it for the creation of an end to-end security program for global/local operations, understanding their security position including risks/ threats/vulnerabilities, implementing fixes to close security gaps, or resolving a security incident, clients can expect the highest measure of efficiency when partnering with Semita Holdings.
A Partnership Exemplifying Semita Holdings’ Comprehensive Services
Semita Holdings recently worked on a project for a huge and renowned multi-level marketing company in Japan. The client was concerned that their security position was inadequate to prevent, monitor and respond to cyberattacks and sought assistance from Semita Holdings. As a customer-centric company, Semita Holdings performed a thorough investigation to determine the underlying causes and issues faced by the client. Semita Holdings delivered a risk profile, issue recommendations, and a roadmap for improvement.
The collaboration began with a risk evaluation of the client’s front office, which interfaces with eCommerce servers, enabling Semita Holdings to identify vulnerabilities within their server network. Semita Holdings devised a roadmap for the client based on the gathered insights, which depicted that they had to act immediately on their issues. The detailed overview of the client’s organization shockingly revealed that the security breach occurred from a source within the company and not outside. The roadmap revealed that an employee was skimming off every transaction being processed by the client, with even important information being passed around to people on the dark web. With its comprehensive report, Semita Holdings helped the client understand their risk profile and provided them with a plan to address issues ranging from the most basic to the larger problems.
Most organizations appreciate the roadmaps we create because they provide the client with ideas, root causes of issues, and the ability to prioritize, budget and schedule change in a timely manner
Another instance showcasing the effectiveness of the company’s services was an engagement with a global Japanese electronics manufacturing firm. After a cyber-security compromise, the customer’s board of directors recommended that the management seek help in implementing a comprehensive worldwide security program. Semita Holdings, developed a three-year roadmap and a prioritized action plan to mitigate risks and address issues. Semita Holdings ensured that the client understood the criticality of issues identified. Semita Holdings was successful and implemented the requested changes and established fundamental operational policies, standards, and guidelines in the client’s organization.
“Most organizations appreciate the roadmaps we create because they provide the client with ideas, root causes of issues, and the ability to prioritize, budget and schedule change in a timely manner,” states David. Additionally, along with the services, Semita Holdings is developing a secure network connectivity solution that allows organizations to ensure only authorized users connect to network services. This solution secures the network connection between the company network and users accessing from outside using hardware based security token, making the architecture un hackable. With its extensive offering, Semita Holdings looks to improve the cybersecurity position and help businesses better understand their risks and how to mitigate them.
