Information Security and Assurance
Data holds immense value for government bodies and businesses alike and the need to assure and secure it has never been higher. Breaches have become increasingly commonplace, making information security and assurance a top priority on any corporate or government agenda.
Becoming ISO 27001 accredited is now a pre-requisite for any business or public body, as is the requirement for PCI-DSS compliance for those that take payments via credit or debit card.
Our Cyber Security & Resilience consultants have more than 20 years of combined experience in helping clients achieve those credentials.
The team includes specialised information assurance consultants at CeSG Certified Professional (CCP) practitioner, senior practitioner and lead practitioner levels. It also comprises CeSG Listed Advisor (CLAS) consultants with the highest government security clearance who advise on key government security forums.
Cyber terrorists and criminals are continually finding new ways to steal intellectual property, commit high-tech crime and conduct targeted denial of service attacks. The rise of cloud computing and ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) have also added to the governance, risk and compliance challenges organisations face.
Businesses and government bodies need a multi-layered security solution to defend against these evolving threats. We recognise the need to view information security holistically, and our combined expertise covers the full spectrum of operational and management services, from cyber security architecture and engineering to business resilience.
We have expertise in the public sector, where we deliver cyber security services for our shared service centre with the Department for Transport (DfT). The Swansea-based centre is accredited to the same high level of security as central government departments, including IS027001, Cyber Essentials Plus and Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME).
Cyber Security Architecture
The evolving digital landscape is creating new opportunities for malicious activity as governments and businesses try to keep up with technological advances.
While security strategies must move with the times, there must be a heightened focus on making the right investment in architecture that strikes a balance between security, cost and acceptable risk.
Our enterprise and technical security architects get under the skin of our partners’ organisations, their challenges and the threat landscape, to deliver meaningful security strategies. They design and assess technology solutions and processes to provide standard build blueprints for integrating security into enterprise architectures, including cloud computing and applications from review, through to design and implementation.
We have highly skilled consultants with experience in:
- Identity and Access Management
- Intrusion Detection / Prevention Systems
- Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
- Security Operations Centres (SOC)
- Vulnerability detection and Data Loss Prevention
Cyber Security Engineering
Organisations face the increasingly complex challenge of implementing and managing new technical security devices in a holistic way to keep their information secure.
Our team of cyber security engineers help a range of government bodies and businesses install and configure security equipment, giving them the confidence to drive their organisations forward in a secure environment.
Our engineers are experts in:
Resilience is about being confident that your organisation has the business continuity measures and governance structures in place to withstand and survive a cyber attack.
Our business continuity experts have a strong track record of ensuring that public and private sector organisations are correctly aligned with ISO 22301. We work with our clients to develop an effective business continuity management system (BCMS) whilst adopting a ‘Plan, Do, Check, Act’ approach and conduct effective business impact analysis. Our team will work with your business to fully understand your key business objectives, work with your operational teams to understand their critical success levels and how these may change in the event of an incident, and draw out the recovery point objectives, recovery time objectives and maximum acceptable outage for your business to continue to provide the service you have committed to your customers.
Trusted Advisory Group
The demand for security investment often means that organisations cannot recruit or develop the skills internally to operate and manage a multi-layered cyber security solution.
This can create significant risk if government bodies and businesses are unable to make informed decisions on any changes required or in the event of a cyber attack.
Our Trusted Advisory Group can provide Interim or Virtual Chief Information Security Officers (CISO), Chief Information Risk Owners and Heads of Security, so our clients can access the right skills on a part-time or full-time basis.
Our consultants have extensive experience in operating as Security Assurance Coordinators for the Ministry of Defence (MOD), linking programme teams through to the Accreditor for MOD, Defence and Government clients.
