- Smooth, secure transition from old systems to cutting-edge applications and infrastructure thanks to Commissum input
In late 2014, The Cambridge was in the process of transitioning to a new core banking system provider. Being a financial institution, The Cambridge takes information security extremely seriously, therefore a critical component of the transition process was to verify the security of the new system was not vulnerable in any way to threats; it was vital that the applications and infrastructure hosting the new services were secure in order to facilitate adequate protection of The Cambridge’s members.
Commissum was invited
to take part in a formal tender process, and following successful participation,
were tasked by The Cambridge to provide an initial test plan and ongoing
security programme which would provide a robust level of assurance pre
go-live and give The Cambridge confidence in the new infrastructure’s ability
to provide a sound platform for the society to work from in the future.
In order to carry out the work, Commissum would have to collaborate with all involved parties and The Cambridge to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the platform and any potential risks or threats attached. This required a tailored approach from the start, and Commissum would have to be versatile enough to answer The Cambridge’s unique needs for the duration of the project.
