Information and Communication Security

In a dynamic world, in which new technologies, services, products and forms of interaction advance with ever-increasing intensity, trust is vital for a successful business. With the use of information and communication security technologies, trustworthiness can be maximized by ensuring consistent business, without interruptions, without loss of privacy and without any security incidents that interfere in business and cause impacts that many times are hard to overcome.

The CPQD Information and Communication Security technology platform comprises multidimensional know-how (regulatory, procedural, physical and technological), aimed at preventing, detecting and responding to security incidents, maximizing trustworthiness.

The most important know-how for this platform includes:

Security Assessment

Technologies and methods to reveal vulnerabilities and assess the degree of exposure to protocol, service, technology and product risks in software or hardware systems.

  • Code inspection
  • Cryptanalysis
  • Exploit development
  • Penetration testing
  • Reverse engineering
  • Static code analysis
  • Vulnerability assessment

Access Control

Technologies and methods for the identification, authentication and authorization of users and devices for physical and logical accesses, Identity Access Management (IAM), Adaptive Dynamic Authentication (ADA), continuous user authentication and advanced authentication.

  • Adaptive and dynamic authentication
  • Authentication tokens
