Security by Design

Efficiently integrating cybersecurity into projects right from the design phase.

AccueilSecurity by Design

Data and systems security is a crucial issue for companies in all sectors. It is essential that they identify all initiatives impacting their IT assets and data, and then raise awareness among stakeholders so that all digital risks are taken into account during projects.

In order to be as efficient as possible, a cyber analysis must take into account the heterogeneous technological, organizational, regulatory and methodological contexts (V Method, AGILE, DevSecOps…) of companies.

With nearly 15 years’ experience in “Security By Design”, HeadMind Partners has strong convictions for effectively addressing this issue.
