When To Engage Cyber Security Consulting Services

With ever-changing threats and regulations, and in a challenging skills short market, clients need to build an effective security department that can positively influence security matters across all their departments without hindering their day to day operations or agile delivery.  Efficient controls, more effective architectures, appropriate levels of protection, and keeping the business going in unforeseen circumstances or emergencies are just some of their required functions.  But what happens when an organisation does not have the in-house specialist skills, resources, or time to do all this?


What A Security Consultant Can Do For You

Security Consultants provide your organisation with a cost-effective way of maintaining information security systems and managing risk.  They offer an extension to your organisation’s information security capabilities, deliver an ongoing security presence, and help identify your current information security maturity, the threat landscape, what needs to be protected and the level of protection required.

Some of the key functions of a Security Consultant include

  • Advisor: Understands the implications of new or emerging threats and creates a risk-based strategic roadmap to align cyber security efforts with corporate risk appetite, monitoring solutions, and integrates services delivered by third parties into a seamless framework.
  • Strategist: Prioritises business operations and information assets for the organisation, and ensures that security, resources and budgets are fully aligned to execute these priorities.
  • Threat Prevention: Monitors processes that safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and drive the overall security programme.
  • Technology Integrator: Selects and implements threat detection and monitoring solutions, and integrates services delivered by third parties into a seamless framework
