Data Security, Cyber Attack Protection & Vulnerability Assessments
In a highly interconnected world, physical data and cyber security are blending into a single concept with real-world implications. The pace of the convergence has increased as physical security vendors and service companies look to leverage the power of connectivity, and as the internet of things becomes a reality.
Northdoor takes a holistic view of data security, aiming to build security into the enterprise at every level and from the ground up, rather than adding it as an after-thought. A layered approach to data security helps prevent loss or unauthorised access to data, while simultaneously making it easier for trusted stakeholders to support business operations and growth.
Our zero-trust concept for cyber security is based on the need to balance risk and productivity, so that you can protect your organisation without impeding business activity. Zero trust accepts that every device, every system and every user is a potential cyber security threat. Instead of trying to impose security from the top down and from the outside in, zero trust aims to detect and mitigate threats as they occur, wherever they occur, preventing their spread by ensuring that each point in the network has only the level of privileges it needs and no more.
Zero trust draws on new AI-powered security techniques to protect every user and every element in your infrastructure. By uniting information on threats across your hybrid infrastructure, it delivers a real-time view of risk and gives you the ability to respond rapidly and decisively.
Cyber security risks are always growing, but this may not be reflected in your organisation’s budget. With a comprehensive framework of solutions that deliver individual value but also combine into a holistic landscape, Northdoor enables you to start small, prove the business value, then build out new solutions as you identify new requirements.

Who are we doing this for?
Patient data is often shared by NHS Trusts for research purposes. Particularly in light of the GDPR and other data protection regulations, it is critical that all personal information be removed from patient records to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified. Traditionally, anonymising records was a time-consuming, manually intensive process requiring support from IT specialists.
Using a solution developed for the NHS by Northdoor, an NHS Trust deployed a data pseudonymisation solution to ensure that all personal data is removed automatically as part of the export process. As a result, a task that required one or two full-time resources is now fully automated while remaining in compliance with NHS regulations.
While external access to data was properly controlled and documented for a Japanese Bank, there were concerns about the ability to monitor internal user access to privileged information in real time. Northdoor implemented a solution that tracks access and provides audit logs for all users across all data sources, with real-time alerts configured for selected critical applications.
