Cybersecurity Consulting

Strengthen cyber defence with Security Consulting

With IT infrastructures changing all the time, it is important to regularly review and update your security strategy and protective measures/controls. In the hectic activity of day-to-day business, however, it can be hard to find the time. Or you may be unsure where to go with your strategy. In both cases, Security Consulting can provide valuable assistance.

From cybersecurity consulting to part-time CISO

Changes to the IT infrastructure, such as cloud adaptation, always raise questions about security. Is the data used to define the data storage for the cloud strategy classified? Does the organisation need a Security Operations Center (SOC) to respond to security incidents? There are also general issues to consider: how is the infrastructure protected, and does the Information Security Management System (ISMS) still meet current requirements? In addition to providing support with your strategy, Security Consulting can also provide you with a ‘part-time CISO’ courtesy of CISO as a Service (CISOaaS), to step in and provide assistance as and when required.

Your benefits

  • Checks on current protection needs and vulnerabilities
  • Strategies and measures to increase your resilience and comply with regulations
  • Cybersecurity awareness campaigns for your employees

When is it the right solution?

Companies are constantly optimising their infrastructure and digitising processes to meet market needs more effectively. Regulatory requirements are also increasingly rigorous. You want to maintain a high level of IT security despite the pace of these changes.

Besides constantly reviewing and adapting your strategy, meeting IT security requirements also means keeping employees alert to security issues in their day-to-day work. At the same time, you are under cost and resource pressure and could certainly use the occasional support of a CISO.
