How we do it

Proactively avoiding exposure from security threats

As digital technologies become more and more integrated into our lives, so too do the risks associated with them. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a prime example of this convergence, as it allows us to control physical devices with digital commands. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities, but it also creates new security challenges.

Optic is a leader in converged security.

We have over 30 years of experience in helping businesses assess and mitigate their security risks. We understand that every organisation is different, and we tailor our solutions to meet your specific needs.

Our converged security experts can help you:

  • Identify and assess your physical and digital security risks

  • Develop a plan to mitigate those risks

  • Implement and test your security controls

  • Stay up to date on the latest security threats

ESRM: The Foundation of Our Converged Security Offering

Our Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) methodology is the cornerstone of our converged security offering. ESRM is a framework that ensures the correct controls are deployed and monitored to deliver the appropriate level of security for an organisation. It is consistent with Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) concepts and aligned to the ISO 31000 Risk Management Standard.

ESRM follows a five-step process:

  1. Identify and prioritize assets. What are your organization's most important assets? Where are they located? What is their value?

  2. Identify and prioritize risks. What are the threats to your organization's assets? What is the likelihood of each threat occurring? What is the impact of each threat if it does occur?

  3. Mitigate risks. What controls can be implemented to reduce the likelihood or impact of risks?

  4. Respond to incidents. How will you respond to security incidents?

  5. Ongoing risk assessment. How will you continuously monitor and assess your organisation's security risks?

The ESRM framework enables us to provide our customers with a holistic view of their security risks and the strategies and controls that can be implemented to mitigate them. We structure our operations and security risk solutions according to the ESRM framework, which assures our customers that the security solutions we recommend and install are commensurate to the risks they are designed to mitigate, fit-for-purpose, responsive to change, regularly serviced, and future-proof.
