Kudelski Security aims at disrupting the security status quo. It has a Swiss ethos and is determinedly vendor-neutral. It has offices/labs in Switzerland, London, Singapore, Taiwan, Germany, France and the United States.
Its story began with the Kudelski Group, which was founded in 1951 with the development of the NAGRA recording equipment. It became known for innovation that shaped the evolution of digital television and the Group then used its engineering capabilities to become a world leader in media content security public access solutions, and a global IoT security and cybersecurity player.
It now helps CISOs develop strategies that minimize their company’s exposure, strengthen its cybersecurity over time, optimise its security technology, and tailor their security environments to their specific needs. It also provides managed security services, and enables Cybersecurity Incident Report planning, for when the almost inevitable (but, hopefully, well-controlled) attacks occur.
According to its current CEO, Andrew Howard: “Our vision is to challenge the cybersecurity status quo, uniting world-class consulting, innovation, managed services and technologies to deliver real business outcomes for our clients focused on increasing confidence, cyber-resilience, and protection of data across their digital ecosystem, globally.”
Its information security management system is ISO 27001:2013 certified; it is a member of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST); it is certified to Cyber Essentials (a government-backed scheme of security controls, intended protect against cyberattacks and mitigate the impact of breaches); its Incident Response team holds a broad range of Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) certifications (ensuring that its services meet the rigorous standards established at Carnegie Mellon University).
