Our expertise & people

Our uniquely broad spectrum of expertise enables us to propose an overall approach to cyber‑security across all industries.

 

All industries

Approach has extensive experience across all industries. Our teams provide each client with a combination of in‑depth industry knowledge and expert perspectives in cyber‑security.

We regularly serve the most demanding organisations in the Financial Services Industry, the Public Sector, the FinTechs, Healthcare, Utilities, etc.

Total cyber-security value chain

We offer services and solutions covering the entire cyber‑security value chain, from governance and strategy, through to resilient technical designs, architectures and implementations.

Because we have our own software factory, we are uniquely positioned to develop highly secure solutions for our clients.

Meet our certified people

At Approach, we invest in the skills and expertise of our people. They are all certified professionals who aim to continuously develop their knowledge.

We don't view certifications as a marketing artefact but rather as a means of connecting with the cyber‑security ecosystem and increasing the quality of service.

Ethical (white hat) hackers

A white hat hacker, or ethical hacker, uses the very same techniques that more insidious attackers use to breach a network for real in order to test an organisation's IT security and identify any vulnerabilities.  Our certified ethical hackers never perform penetration‑testing as a casual undertaking. Proper testing involves a great deal of planning, which includes obtaining express permission from the client to perform tests and then running those tests as safely as possible.

SOC (Security Operations Centers) specialists

SOCs are typically based around a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system, which aggregates and correlates data from various security feeds, such as IDS/IPS, firewalls, antivirus solutions, vulnerability scanners, etc. SIEM technology creates a dashboard for SOC analysts to monitor the security of the organisation.

Our SOC staff includes analysts, security engineers and SOC managers, who all perform malware & cyber-attack analyses and forensics.

Information Security Officers & Data Protection Officers

Our Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) Consultants have in-depth knowledge of and experience in the strategic and management aspects of Information Security and Data Privacy.

They typically have a strong background in these matters and have worked in a Security Officer / CISO / DPO role.  They are fully conversant in ISO2700O series standards, ISAE 3402 (SOC reports), CobIT, PCI-DSS, GDPR and eIDAS compliance.

Secure Software Development Specialists

Approach experts can help you to create a Secure Development Lifecycle within an Agile Organisation.

They will embed security at the core of your SDLC by applying secure coding practices, making security a core requirement in User Stories, training your developers and engineers and implementing Continuous Integration practices.

Mobile application development & security specialists

Approach provides mobile app development and security expertise on the main mobile platforms: iOS and Android.

We take a layered approach to security and use secure techniques such as Multi-Factor authentication, biometrics, code protection, secure storage, digital signature, transaction data signing, dynamic pin‑pads, etc.

Secure Web app developers

Approach is a partner of choice for secure web projects. Our web developers are skilled with all the latest major web technologies: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Angular, ReactJS.
