Helping You Stay One Step Ahead

Cybersecurity is not simply a product, but a process.

Threats are constantly evolving and compliance regulations are increasing in complexity; a well-defined cyber risk management program, underpinned by a security lifecycle, is your best defence. If cyber criminals focus on keeping one-step ahead, so should you.

A 2017 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study found that nearly a quarter of organisations surveyed that have suffered an attack, lost business opportunities. Four in 10 said those losses were substantial, one in five organisations lost customers due to an attack, and nearly 30 percent lost revenue.

We help organisations stay one-step ahead of Cybersecurity threats by focusing the conversation on risk management.

Data#3’s Cybersecurity lifecycle is comprised of four components: Prepare, Protect, Detect and Respond. This unified approach ensures you understand your Cybersecurity risks and assists in adequately securing your environment.


As user names are easily guessed and passwords easily cracked, traditional approaches to identity management are lacking.

Organisations must adopt a mature approach to identity and access management.

Why? Cloud, Mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are evolving how we work and employees are demanding access to corporate resources from more devices in more locations than ever before.

Identity has become the new permitter.

To improve productivity and protect the identity of your clients and employees, we offer the following solutions:

  • Multi-Factor Authentication
  • Privileged Access Management
  • Secure Network Access
  • Single Sign-On (SSO)

Data breaches and their impacts make headline news and the volume of information we must protect is growing exponentially.

New regulations, both Australian and International, mean your company must ensure that data is secure at rest, in use, and in motion.

Our data security offerings provide you with control of your data, prevent unauthorised access, and enable you to give customers and employees access to the correct data, securely.

We help your enterprise protect information through solutions that provide:

  • Data Encryption
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
  • Email and Web Content Filtering
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

Device security has always been one of the most critical responsibilities of IT. However, over time, the word “device” has evolved from static servers and desktops to include mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops.

A complicating factor is that most employees use three or more devices on any given day and several of those simultaneously. The explosion in device types and numbers creates a major challenge for IT departments.

As companies scramble to protect themselves from emerging threats, Enterprise IT struggles to find ways to secure the information on these devices without crippling productivity.

Data#3 offers the following solutions to ensure you’re protecting your information in parallel with your employees usage:

  • Application Control / Whitelisting
  • Endpoint Detection and Response
  • Enterprise Device Management
  • Endpoint Protection
  • Intrusion Prevention
  • Patch Management
  • Vulnerability Management

Network security refers to activity intended to protect the usability and integrity of your network and data.

Data#3’s strategy for protecting networks is a defence-in-depth approach from the edge of your networks to the core systems. We ensure that only authorised users may access network resources and that malicious actors are blocked.

Every organisation delivering the services that their clients and employees demand must secure its network. Often, the network is viewed as the first line of defence and a robust and reliable perimeter defence protects the enterprise.

To ensure you can keep secure your network, we offer the following solutions:

  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion Prevention
  • Network Access Control
  • Network Segmentation
  • Secure Web Gateway (Proxy)
  • Web Application Firewall
  • Web Security

Every organisation has implemented security controls to ensure protection against cyber threats and to achieve standard compliance.

However, many struggle to build and maintain an accurate picture of their security posture. Complicating matters is the requirement for identifying indicators of compromise on the network.

Security monitoring, combined with analytics and relevant intelligence, ensures you make informed decisions about a security threat and can correlate the threat with other network activities.

Visibility is critical in preventing compromises, but that importance doubles when responding to and recovering from incidents. Knowledge about occurrences on your network allows adaptation to the evolving threat landscape.

We offer the following services that allow you to understand the streams of Cybersecurity-related information on your network:

  • Managed Security Service
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
  • Behavioural Analytics
  • Intelligence


Your employees are the most critical line of defence. Many organisations have significantly invested in technology to prevent cyber threats from causing major disruptions or data loss.

Unfortunately, in many cases, the human factor is neglected. Investing in education for your employees about Cybersecurity risk is a must.

Data#3 uses the Prosci ADKAR model (awareness, desire, knowledge, ability and reinforcement) to define a culture of that promotes Cybersecurity awareness as top of mind for your employees.

We offer the following risk reduction services in developing your Cybersecurity strategy:

  • Security Awareness Training
  • Phishing Simulation Services

A best-practice approach to Cybersecurity includes current, intimate knowledge of your assets and a regular assessment of your network perimeter, applications, data, and internal systems.

At a minimum, this should include independent penetration tests annually, or after significant changes.

As experienced practitioners, Data#3 utilises extensive knowledge and pragmatism to customise a testing approach for specific technology platforms and your business requirements.

Our approach to security testing is based on 20 plus years of experience and aligns with industry standards to make use of Offensive Security’s practice guidelines and the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) methodologies.

To help your business stay one-step ahead of Cybersecurity threats, we offer the following security testing services:

  • Penetration Testing
  • Vulnerability Assessments
  • Gap Analysis
  • Maturity Assessments
  • Health Checks

Companies must take a holistic approach to Cybersecurity and think beyond the technology.

Today, an organisation must have a strategy that includes policies and procedures, take into consideration compliance and regulatory requirements and have a governance framework to ensure the strategy evolves at a pace greater than the threats it faces.

Our consultants work with you to build a Cybersecurity Strategy that protects your valuable data, improves the enterprise security posture, and most critically, secures your brand.

We offer the following advisory services:

  • Compliance and Governance
  • Information Security Strategy
  • Security Policy Development and Review
  • Incident Response Plan

Security Lifecycle

Secure Lifecycle
Through improved visibility, risk posture clarification, gap analysis, and proactive planning, the Data#3 Security Lifecycle is designed to help you successfully navigate the complex world of Cybersecurity.

The four components that comprise this lifecycle are Prepare, Protect, Detect, and Respond.

This is applied across your information, applications, and infrastructure architectures to drive design, development, management, and optimisation of a comprehensive Cybersecurity strategy aligned with your organisation’s overall business objectives.
