Methodologies, tools, and frameworks used at Yalantis

When crafting a cybersecurity strategy for our clients, we draw upon a range of methodologies, frameworks, and tools to ensure comprehensive protection against evolving cyber threats. Here are some key approaches we utilize:

#1 AAA Framework

What is it?

The AAA framework, standing for Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting, is a foundational concept in cybersecurity that outlines three key principles for controlling access to resources:

  • Authenticating users or entities
  • Determining their access rights
  • Tracking their activities for auditing and accountability purposes

Where is it used?

The AAA framework is applicable across various industries.

How do we use it?

  • Integrate robust authentication mechanisms to securely verify user identities
  • Implement strict authorization controls to ensure users have appropriate access levels
  • Deploy comprehensive accounting and logging systems to monitor user activities and track access attempts

#2 Zero Trust model

What is it?

Zero Trust is a cybersecurity paradigm that assumes no entity, whether inside or outside the network perimeter, should be trusted by default. It advocates for strict access controls and continuous verification of every user, device, or application attempting to connect to the network or access resources.

Where is it used?

Since the Zero Trust paradigm is built around the idea of not trusting any entity inside or outside an organization’s network perimeter, it’s increasingly being adopted across the FinTech, healthcare, and government sectors as a cybersecurity best practice.

How do we use it?

  • Implement strict access controls and continuous monitoring to verify every access request
  • Employ micro-segmentation to limit lateral movement and reduce the attack surface
  • Minimize trust assumptions for third-party apps, users, or devices, and enhance the security posture

#3 NIST cybersecurity framework

What is it?

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a set of guidelines, best practices, and standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at the US Department of Commerce. It provides a flexible framework consisting of core functions — Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover — designed to enhance cybersecurity resilience and promote better communication and collaboration between stakeholders.

Where is it used?

The NIST framework provides a set of best practices to help organizations manage and reduce cybersecurity risks. While it’s widely applicable, it’s particularly influential in the United States and is often used as a baseline in critical infrastructure and manufacturing.

How do we use it?

  • Refer to the NIST cybersecurity framework as a guideline for risk management and cybersecurity best practices
  • Adopt its core functions (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover) to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy
  • Use the framework’s flexible structure to tailor security measures to the specific needs and risk profile of each client

#4 PCI DSS compliance

What is it?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security practices designed to ensure that organizations that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. It outlines requirements for securing cardholder data, implementing strong access controls, and maintaining compliance with industry requirements to protect against payment card fraud and data breaches.

Where is it used?

While PCI DSS is primarily focused on the payment card industry, its principles can be relevant to any industry that handles sensitive financial data.

How do we use it?

  • Ensure adherence to PCI DSS requirements when handling payment card data to establish secure processing, transmission, and storage of sensitive information
  • Implement controls such as encryption, access controls, and regular security assessments to protect cardholder data and comply with industry requirements
  • Train and educate clients to achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance, mitigating risks associated with payment card transactions

#5 ISO/IEC 27001 standard

What is it?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS).

Where is it used?

While ISO/IEC 27001 is applicable across industries, it’s particularly relevant in those where information security is critical, such as finance, healthcare, and technology.

How do we use it?

  • Establish a robust framework for managing and protecting sensitive information according to ISO/IEC 27001 requirements
  • Conduct risk assessments and implement controls to address identified risks, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards
  • Continuously monitor and review the effectiveness of security measures to maintain ISO/IEC 27001 certification and improve overall cybersecurity resilience

By leveraging these methodologies, frameworks, and tools, we develop tailored cybersecurity strategies that prioritize risk management, enhance defensive capabilities, and protect our clients’ digital assets from a wide range of cyber threats.
