We’re very excited to be showcasing our ISMScloud.com service at the 27K Summit in San Francisco today

September 28, 2016

erez_iso_showWhat’s it all about? The 27K Summit website says: “In the face of multiplying security threats, organizations are increasingly required to demonstrate management control of cyber security. ISO/IEC 27001, as the international information security management standard, provides the vehicle to do this. It’s the only standard that takes an integrated approach to information security by addressing people, processes and technology. ISO/IEC 27001 certification is the way to prove to clients, partners, shareholders, government agencies, and others that mission-critical information is kept secure.”

Our ISMScloud.com service is a secure, online application that can help you manage and document the process of securing your company’s information system, protecting your business and employees’ privacy and achieving your ISO 27001 certification.

  • Get and maintain your ISO 27001 certification

It Takes a Village of Compliancies When Facing the 400-pound Hacker

September 27, 2016

PrintCyber Security was highlighted in last night’s first presidential debate, and for good reason. There were over 85.5 Billion (with a ‘B’) cyber attacks last year according to 360 Security Center. That’s over 2,000 attacks per second. The targets are corporate, personal and government agencies, which puts everyone at risk.

With the growing popularity of cloud computing, effective Cloud Security has become a solution corporations and government agencies simply can not do without. Taking all of the requirements agencies had to follow for their conventional IT systems and extending those controls specifically for cloud computing is the role compliancies such as FedRAMP has adopted. “FedRAMP has codified security. It has detailed what we mean when we say cloud security.” -Melvin Greer, Chief Strategist at Lockheed Martin.


Information Security Levels

Through FedRAMP and other compliances such as NIST, ISO 27001 and HIPAA, Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) like Project Hosts have been providing true cloud security for both enterprises and government agencies for years. Unlike a Standard or Public Cloud solution, Project Hosts‘ Secure Cloud solutions deliver a higher degree of customization and support for your precise solutions architecture, applications integration needs, security requirements, and real-time reporting customizations. A Secure Cloud delivers the same degree of customization as an on-premises “Private Cloud”, but without all the IT costs, complexities, staff allocation and training, maintenance and support.

The ISO Certification Process can be a nightmare

On September 26th through the 28th, San Francisco will be hosting the 27K Security Summit. 27k represents the ISO 27001 certification. With the ever growing multitude of security threats, organizations are having to demonstrate proper management of cyber security through compliance.

The International Standards Organization or ISO, explains ISO 27001 as a family of standards that helps organizations keep information assets secure. Using the family of standards will help your organization manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to you by third parties. To better help organization obtain and maintain this family of standards or compliance, Project Hosts has developed the ISMScloud.

The ISMScloud service is a secure, online application that can help you manage and document the process of securing your company’s information system, protecting your business and employees’ privacy and achieving your ISO 27001 certification.

ISMS_ArtThe ISMScloud provides a best-practices approach to managing the ISO process using standard ISO controls. It follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle methodology through a centralized and intelligent, yet easy to use Information Security Management System (ISMS).

Optimizing your Azure Deployment with Added Security

September 13, 2016
Microsoft Azure + Project Hosts = True Cloud Security

Microsoft Azure + Project Hosts = True Cloud Security

When it comes to Microsoft Azure security, Azure takes care of the physical security of their data centers as well as access control and the security surrounding physical devices. But Azure leaves it up to each customer to secure and restrict access to their own virtual servers/subnets. In order to convey true ‘cloud confidence’ to a commercial organization or government agency, a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) should provide the proper cloud security compliances. While Microsoft Azure is an phenomenal platform, offering rapid spin ups of new Windows Server-based application deployments, Project Hosts can implement the necessary security controls on your, or our Azure subscription including ISO 27001, NIST 800-53 and FedRAMP.

When a deployment is first architected for Azure, it is optimized and updated for its initial and originally intended usage scenario. As time passes, deployments are typically modified to meet additional needs and as such require additional updates and re-optimization:

Continuous Monitoring
Update and Patch
Architecture Optimization
Database and Application
Third Party Application
Backup and Restore
Disaster Recovery

The G20 Summit brings great attention to Cyber Security

September 1, 2016

MilitaryGrade_GraphicThe G20 summit kicks off this Sunday in China. At the top of the list of the world’s economic powers is Cyber Security. According to 360 Security Center, there were over 85.5 Billion cyber attacks last year. That’s over 2,000 attacks per second. While the Chinese government has launched the world’s first Quantum Satellite with the hopes of creating a hack free internet, today American companies can turn to FedRAMP compliance to secure their data and communications.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

FedRAMP has gained a large following among federal and state government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, the Treasury Department and many others. FedRAMP is now making significant inroads in the private sector, specifically in commercial enterprises.
