From its inception, Vertical Relevance has treated Security and Compliance as job zero. While many companies in this space tout expertise around auditing, building, and remediating infrastructure and workloads to meet compliance requirements around regulations such as NYDFS, we feel the world of Security and Compliance is much more multi-faceted than simply “meeting” requirements. Security and Compliance needs should be proactively anticipated. The differentiator that Vertical Relevance brings to the table is that due to our 20+ years of financial services expertise, we are not only more familiar with the existing requirements that companies face, but we’re also able to better anticipate and deliver on our client’s needs to keep them ahead of the curve.
We know the disruption that the threat of non-compliance can cause for the business and further innovation. We understand the complexities of financial institutions and the difference between front, middle, and back-office operations. We understand the liability of storing large amounts of PII and more importantly the mechanisms to properly protect and utilize it to provide better customer experiences. While other companies in the space may work “for” financial services companies, we exclusively work “with” financial services companies to realize their goals. Technology, specifically AWS, is the vehicle, but the driver has been and always will be business outcomes and we’re built from the ground up to deliver on both the tech and business.
While every organization we work with is unique and presents its own business challenges to solve, a commonality between most of our clients is the requirement to remain in compliance with regulators. Due to the same regulatory expectations, we commonly hear similar questions in the security and compliance space such as
While there are technical aspects to all those questions above, ultimately, those questions are all drivers towards business goals. We take those business goals, translate them into technical requirements, create designs and architectures, and ultimately build, deploy, test, and automate as much as we humanly can.
Our solutions below reflect how we view reusable AWS cloud solutions and code as not only accelerators in delivery, but also as mechanisms consistency to ensure that our quality always meets our standards.
While there are many different components involved with securing the cloud, a carefully architected IAM strategy is paramount. A solid IAM strategy allows engineers to develop quickly, provides key stakeholders with a comprehensive picture of the actions that can be performed by different IAM principals, and results in a more secure cloud environment overall.
