Information security consultancy / Posture review

Putting your information security efforts on the right path

Our consultancy / posture review service

Information security can be difficult, there are many areas to consider, a constantly evolving threat landscape, countless potential attack vectors to protect against and a host of potential security ‘solutions’ on offer. With so much to think about, it’s no wonder many organisations are unsure on which way to turn, or what the most effective route is to take. 

This is especially the case for companies who may have never considered information security before or who have been required to act due to new legislation or regulatory compliance. 

Our information security consultancy service is designed to identify and prioritise solutions that will deliver immediate, cost efficient security benefits to your organisation in a stepped approach.

Understand your current position

Our consultants work with you to gain an overview of your business, the key areas of your operation, security objectives, the threats you face and any security measures you currently have in place.

Identify potential key risks

We will work with you to identify the key areas at risk, investigating these further to prioritise improvement areas that will deliver real security benefits to your organisation.

Support your security improvement efforts

Following our investigation, we will provide you with a prioritised roadmap of future information security improvements. Ensuring you get the best possible results from the resources you have.

Help you achieve security buy-in

Obtaining budget for security improvement can be difficult and management will want to understand the details before they sign off. Our consultancy service can help provide this information.

What we review

Our consultancy service will be based on your requirements and tailored to your objectives. Whilst every engagement is different, we typically look to review your:

Network architecture

Our aim is to gain a clear understanding of your corporate networks and the equipment (laptops, routers, servers etc) that are connected to them.

Services & technology

We will review third-party services and investigate the applications, as well as software, that is operating on your network equipment.

Data storage & transfer

Data is often vital to an organisation, it’s therefore important to understand where critical data is stored and where it may be transferred, both inside & outside of your corporate network.

Security measures & policies

Our review will look to understand your security measures (firewalls, access controls, malware protection etc) as well the security policies you currently have in place (password management, patching etc).

Our consultancy process

Our consultancy service is tailored to your requirements, ensuring you get the best possible outcome for your business. Below we outline the key stages our consultancy service goes through:

1. Security questionnaire

Our security questionnaire allows us to gain an understanding of your corporate networks, the security measures you have in place and the security knowledge that is held within your organisation. This forms the basis from which we can start to investigate your security posture further.

2. Initial investigation

An initial investigation will be utilised to gain an understanding of your security needs & concerns, and to go through the security questionnaire in more detail. This will allow us to uncover any initial vulnerabilities, as well as identify key areas of concern for further investigation.

3. In-depth investigation

Once we understand the key areas of concern, we will conduct an in-depth investigation with your team. This will allow us to go into more detail, understanding more about the specific security measures and policies in place around your key services.

4. Reporting

A comprehensive report will be delivered, this will contain a breakdown of the areas discussed during the consultation, outline the key risks uncovered and provide a detailed roadmap of information security improvement works we recommend.

5. Post-engagement support

Our job doesn't finish on the delivery of a report. Our consultants will be available after the report has been delivered to offer their expert guidance & to support your security improvement efforts.

6. Further testing requirements

Once the initial roadmap has been completed, we can work with you to understand any potential future information security requirements and help prioritise your next steps.
