Impact


Protecting data

Data can be immensely valuable, to both businesses and consumers. But, as with anything of value, data may also be exploited by others – for financial gain, for ideological reasons or simply out of malice. The ubiquity of connected systems makes protection especially difficult, given the prevalence of hacking tools and digital crime.

We ensure data confidentiality and integrity, protect intellectual property and maximise system availability, through technology consultancy, concept development or as part of a wider product and system design.

Managing digital security risks


Compliance
Legal and regulatory compliance concerning data security and privacy is critical, particularly in regulated industries. We work with our clients to ensure compliance with the UK Data Protection Act, EU General Data Protection Regulation and international cybersecurity regulations governing medical devices.
Brand reputation
Damage to brand reputation following a compromise or loss of consumer data, whether actual or perceived, can be devastating. We develop robust digital security systems to safeguard consumer confidence and trust.
User experience
“Always-on” consumer expectations demand a consistent and robust yet responsive user experience. We create transparent security protocols that protect the user experience and the underlying data, regardless of the system architecture, connectivity or data location.

Vulnerability analysis

Equally applicable to new and existing systems, our vulnerability analysis process builds on international standards to reflect our real-world experience of third party motivations and how attacks are shared.

Our proprietary risk assessment tools help identify assets and the effects of compromise; understand potential attackers, their motivations and resources; and assess the practicality, impact and likelihood of vulnerabilities. We then define system security requirements to directly mitigate these risks as part of an integrated design. 

Secure by design

Robust system design ensures digital security solutions are properly implemented. Our formal design processes ensure system security by addressing a product’s risks and vulnerabilities as-designed, as-implemented and as-used.

This involves defining security requirements and setting the overall strategy; defining security architecture and system design; and testing to verify regulatory and legal compliance.

For medical systems, this includes Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) standards. 

Experience


Anti-counterfeit measures

We deploy the latest technologies in anti-counterfeit and brand protection, to provide a thorough analysis of our clients’ products and systems.

On the development side, we routinely embed anti-counterfeit features within both consumer products and medical devices. Elsewhere, our statistical algorithm capability has developed covert watermark technology for high-value audio content and a patented anti-counterfeit digital coding scheme.

We also have substantial experience in the development of high performance anti-counterfeit feature readers and ‘track and trace’ systems. 

Secure payment & authentication

Using our security,  wireless and sensing expertise, we build secure payment and authentication features into many products and entire authentication systems. Leading the way with near field communication (NFC) technology, we’re helping our medical clients adopt it as a solution for product registration and authentication of consumables. As a registered MasterCard developer, we also design custom contactless payment solutions, such as that for the accesso smart wearable

Embedded digital security & encryption

Having spent many decades at the forefront of digital security, we developed low-power, computationally efficient public key infrastructure (PKI) and AES encryption implementations for smart metering systems years before the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Today, we’re pioneering the use of emerging technologies such as blockchain alongside established technologies such as identity management, secure boot, digital signatures and cloud encryption. 

Tech, tools & facilities


Digital security codebase
 

Digital security codebase

We possess a software library of digital security IP that can be used in the implementation of systems for our clients. Having these established building blocks on hand results in lower cost, lower risk programmes. Among various encryption, authentication and blockchain libraries, our codebase includes one of the world’s lowest power AES implementations and a PKI for end-to-end. factory-to-brand owner systems.

Secure-element-toolchain
 

Secure element toolchain

This toolchain gives us access to software and hardware from leading security vendors in EAL-certified ‘secure element’ silicon – the same technology that appears in your bank card, SIM card, and passport. This allows us to write, test and register software to implement mobile payment systems in our clients products. This facility is the result of our close relationships with key suppliers and test houses, access to datasheets and samples, and our registration with Mastercard as a contactless payment solution provider.
