Security by design is an empty concept without deliberate thought and foresight. This means thinking carefully about custom and licensed software, network architecture, and parties which ought to be trusted.

Code

Our professionals build and ensure security from top to bottom. We believe in teaching just as much as documenting. Black Chambers’ source code review identifies security-related vulnerabilities with the aim of providing developers insight as to the classes and categories of potential vulnerabilities. By the end of our engagement, source code is more secure and internal developers are better equipped to independently secure an application’s source code.

Our professionals have long histories in the information security community and thus also understand the undesirable narratives that can be spun when undocumented (or worse, documented) vulnerabilities become public information. Within our unique structure of operating through and with the Blackstone Law Group, these narratives are either identified, avoided, or responded to with considered diplomacy.

Network

Network security requires an understanding of entry and access, data flows, and an organization’s risk posture. By working with existing personnel to examine network diagrams and documentation, we provide a legally privileged assessment of existing gaps, areas of non-compliance with stated policies, and assess the function, placement, and need for security controls.

Throughout the engagement, our goal is to cost-effectively ensure our clients are both compliant with industry standard regulations and above reproach for information security best practices.

Trust

Third parties have been the root cause of many of the world’s largest data breaches. The range of data-, cloud-, and security-related products and services has never been greater or more overwhelming. Understanding how vendors manage data — and certifying that vendors are trustworthy — is imperative. Our experts have extensive experience with products new and old, and a network of information security associates that extends to every corner of the community and globe. With this background, we assist with identifying trustworthy vendors and partners who can provide effective services your organization actually needs, within the confines of your budget.
