Given the year-over-year (YOY) rise in online threats and abundance of malicious tools, cybercrimes are not going away any time soon. The Facebook data breach that exposed over 50 million accounts last September shows that even goliath is only as safe as a bootstrapped startup.
While most businesses remain unsure about their technological capabilities to withhold an unforeseen attack, how does one ensure safety in a world full of uncertainty?
The answer lies deep within the collaborative efforts between penetration testing, assessment, and an unbiased cybersecurity and compliance system in place. This is exactly what LGMS—a world-class provider of cybersecurity professional services to clients from various industries, from local to international markets—does best.
“LGMS bridges and re-aligns the gap between an organization’s business direction and cybersecurity development by constructing their cybersecurity roadmap via a top-down approach,” explains Fong Choong Fook, CEO of the firm. LGMS stands at the forefront of cybersecurity compliance consulting and services within the SEA region, educating business decision makers in the benefits of creating a ‘cybersecurity aware’ culture within the organization. LGMS’s in-depth understanding of the intricacies and challenges while implementing the standard, guided the company to develop its framework for the implementation and auditing services.
LGMS have been in the cybersecurity market for more than 14 years, staying true to its focus in providing pure and unbiased cybersecurity professional services. “Our commitment to quality and integrity is recognized amongst our clients from different trades including finance, telecommunication, automotive, and regulatory bodies,” shares Choong Fook proudly. “Our implementers and auditors are always up-to-date with the latest technology trends, and are actively involved in providing training as well.” LGMS’s client-centric approach and tailored compliance strategies have helped clients from various industries achieve compliance in, both, PCI DSS and ISO27001, many of whom lacked knowledge about security compliance and cybersecurity roadmap. Under the guidance of LGMS consultants, the companies were able to achieve security compliance within a reasonable timeframe and budget without over-expending internal resources.
LGMS achieved multiple international accreditations as a compliance service provider and was the first Malaysian cybersecurity service provider to have ISO/ IEC 27001 certification. Since then, the company achieved accreditations as the first and only PCI-DSS Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) as well as Centre of Internet Security (CIS) member company in Malaysia. Moreover, LGMS also enjoys the spot of being the first CREST accredited company for penetration testing and ISACA, Mile2, and PECB certified training partner in Malaysia. The company’s ISO 17025 certification for server, mobile and web penetration testing, as well as source code review is catalyzing the company’s quest towards providing Common Criteria testing services, an international standard which is recognized by 29 countries. At the same time, “we are also getting our labs accredited as a certified Internet of Things (IoT) testing lab, to expand our testing services further, concludes Choong Fook.
