What does the service cover?

consultancy-shieldRisk assessment

This iterative process is vital for any organisation in understanding the impact cyber attacks can have on its business activities. Businesses must identify and value their assets, quantify the threat to them, and manage vulnerabilities in their systems. This information needs to be formulated into focused risk statements, which are prioritised and mitigated by applying appropriate controls. There is no one correct method for assessing risk, so businesses should choose the most appropriate way that fits with how they do business. Following prioritisation, an assessment is then made on the effectiveness of the controls against the level of risk, and the risk owner judges if any further action is necessary.

The threat landscape is ever-changing, therefore an organisation’s risk assessment must be reviewed regularly and revised if necessary.

consultancy-shieldGDPR Compliance

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law in May 2018. Our cyber consultants will check your due diligence, and identify any regulatory gaps that may leave your business exposed to substantial liability. Any guidance will complement your existing business practices and integrate seamlessly into your objectives, giving you the confidence to process and protect personal information lawfully.

consultancy-shieldISO 27001

ISO 27001:2013 is the recognised international standard for information security management, and provides a common framework for developing security policy and identifying mitigating controls. The certification standard provides a holistic approach to managing information risk, ensuring continuous improvement of the controls that maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data. Our consultants can help you meet the requirements and assist you in preparing your submission for accreditation.


consultancy-shieldCyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-sponsored scheme to help businesses protect themselves against common cyber attacks. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate risks from the most frequent internet-based threats. Once a solid foundation of basic hygiene measures are in place, it can be built on as an organisation better understands its exposure to cyber risk. Our experts can help you achieve this standard.

consultancy-shieldList X

List X Contractor Status is the term used by UK Government to describe a business that has been approved to hold and process information at the Government Security Classification (GSC) of SECRET and above. A combination of appropriate and robust physical, procedural and personnel security measures is required to achieve List X Contractor Status. Our specialists have extensive experience in this area, which allows them to help you gain List X facilities approval.
