Leading a software company to cybersecurity maturity


Kalles Group worked with a software company to mature their cybersecurity posture by providing assessment, advisory, and program leadership in phases that met the client where they were in each step of their journey.

The Challenge

Kalles Group had just provided our client with a Risk & Security Assessment, resulting in a 24-month cybersecurity program roadmap. However, internal staffing targets were expected to be realized at a rate that wouldn’t support the roadmap execution. The client needed external resourcing in the form of program leadership and engineering skills and expertise.

Our Approach:

Our team was engaged to provide a prioritized set of resources and skills to help jumpstart the program execution. Workstreams were organized to be focused upon the introduction and/or advancement of initiatives including:

  • Endpoint Detection and Response
  • Intrusion Detection System
  • Vulnerability Management
  • Web Application Firewall
  • Cloud Security Posture Management
  • Security Cybersecurity Tech Debt
  • Security Information and Even Management

The Kalles Group team brought the needed quality of skills and expertise to generate and maintain velocity to the program.

The Results

The client significantly advanced and improved their cybersecurity posture through a strategically implemented set of integrated operational capabilities and tooling. As the internal staff moved forward, thorough transition was completed in addition to a period of shared support and knowledge transfer. Additionally, the cybersecurity program was further cultivated to incorporate deeper capabilities around measurability and reportability.
