There was a time when security was all about protecting the perimeter. But, with mobile computing, countless devices, and emerging internal threats, security now touches every component of your infrastructure and should be a core consideration in everything you do.
There’s no room for error with security
It’s the ultimate insurance and how you mount your defence could be the difference between repelling a threat and suffering a breach. However, as such a specialist discipline, security is not always a strong suit for the average IT team. Unwittingly, systems and data can be left vulnerable through nothing more than lack of knowledge.
We have a long heritage in security and know it’s a serious business. We believe our customers want to work with someone who’ll own the challenge and stand by their recommendations.
Our Security Assessment service provides the expert rigour to properly assess your security posture. We evaluate what risks you face, what needs protecting and consider what constitutes appropriate measures to mitigate those risks.
Security is about more than investing in hardware and software
While we closely examine the security solutions you have deployed, we also look at the policies and governance surrounding your use of technology, as well as the response plans you have in place should you experience an attack. We identify where the gaps exist in your plans and propose potential remedies ranging from better technology to user training.
Although many threats are universal, the type of business you are may make you more vulnerable to certain types of attack. Therefore, every assessment we deliver is subtly different to reflect the individuality of your business and the unique challenges you face. We can even ready you for industry-standard assessments like Cyber Essentials.
Importantly, this doesn’t have to be a one-off. For some of our customers we act like a virtual Security Manager, regularly reviewing security to keep abreast of the threats and keep you safe.
