- Why Abacus?
Gotham Security was acquired by Abacus Group in January 2023, and provides high-quality penetration testing, policy writing, malicious adversary simulation, threat intelligence services and cybersecurity strategy services. The team is comprised of elite white hat hackers, known as the go-to "cyber strike team." Gotham serves a number of Fortune 1000 companies across all major sectors of business, and like Abacus, caters to the financial services and investment management industry.
There are two separate legal entities under the Abacus Group Holding Company: Abacus Group and Gotham Security. Gotham Security reports to the President of Abacus Group, not the CTO of Abacus Group. This structure is similar to that of investment banks adhering to SEC Reg FD.
Abacus Group (blue team) maintains its own independent cybersecurity team that manages the Abacus Security Platform. The platform’s security controls are evaluated and tested three times per year by independent 3rd party cybersecurity firms.
SOC 1 Type 2 compliance, which Abacus maintains annually, ensures the segregation of duties between the organizations and their staff. SOC 2 certification is in process.
