  • Security Advisory

    Identify, manage and mitigate risks to gain C-Level buy-in to appropriately resource and operationalise programmes to support. Identifying and implementing the right core competencies necessary for a mature, robust cyber security strategy means, controlling the three pillars; people, processes and technology.

    • predict the adversary's capabilities and tactics

    • defend where possible

    • detect what gets through, and

    • respond quickly

     

    This approach helps organizations defend against highly organised attacks and common threats that occur internally, such as accidental breaches and human error helping to implement the necessary tools, processes and controls to protect.

  • Secure Architecture

    Today’s risk factors and threats are not the same beast as before. Conducting a "security-by-design" architecture and design ‘walk-through’ review can identify potential vulnerabilities and further insights for building, improving or re-engineering a design to meet the business requirements.

    • deep-dive security architecture and design before design phase

    • identify weaknesses in requirements and architecture, analysing common threats and platform-specific vulnerabilities

    • identify security gaps allowing deployment of a more robust system with fewer findings during security testing.

     

    Reviewing the architecture and design from a security perspective will reduce the risk footprint, enable minimize costs due to re-engineering or retrofitting.

  • Security Transformation

    Our Cyber Transformation team helps you to execute your cyber agendas and realize your cyber goals by building and improving internal processes and technology environments to become more productive and agile. As you transform and mature your security capabilities to support new processes and technology-backed solutions.

    • business objectives are reflective of risk tolerance, and

    • resulting policies and procedures are accountable via a comprehensive cybersecurity governance framework

     

    By guiding you through large and complex cyber initiatives, we help create successful cyber programs that dramatically improve security posture and enable, not encumber your business. Customers and partners expecting increased levels of collaboration, continue to break down organisational boundaries.

  • Third-Party Risk Management

    The dependence on third-party relationships with increasing regulatory and public oversight, exposes healthcare organisations to a host of new and serious risk and compliance issues. 

    Managing third-party due diligence has taken on a renewed sense of urgency because responsibility for the actions of your third-party failings are on you.

    • Examine your business relationships in order to assess risk and regulatory mandates

    • Implement a pragmatic approach to identify, classify, assess, remediate and monitor risk and performance

    • Monitor your IT environment to detect and respond to security and fraud threats that third-party partners may introduce

     

    Supply chains are a vulnerability for critical and industrial infrastructure, with attackers exploiting vulnerabilities to gain access to infrastructure, networks and systems.

    Whatever your relationships, we ensure third-party providers are a source of strength to your business, not a weak link.

  • Virtual CISO

  • Virtual DPO

    We recognise that the Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a specialist role, requiring a complicated balance of skills and knowledge, and we know from discussions with clients that not all DPO are able to meet this need in-house. Our vDPO service acts as your in-house DPO taking the lead on privacy matters, being the single point or go-to person for management and staff on all privacy concerns.

    • Drafting and maintenance of the Register of Processing Activities (Article 30 of the GDPR)
