Security Project Management / MOD SAC Service

Cyber Smart Consulting provide experienced security leadership and a safe hand to help marshal the secure delivery of information systems by your Project Development Teams or Product Teams. A Cyber Smart Consulting Security Project Manager provides a catalyst for effective risk management by enabling a systematic approach to capability delivery in your security conscious Organisation. This approach will reduce the associated risks to your information assets and protect your business from cyber threats.  The security project management service includes technical risk assessments, which will drive the development of appropriate risk-based security controls for people, processes and the technology in any phase of development in your project.

Cyber Smart Consulting security project manager will significantly reduce the likelihood and impact of any event that can lead to data breaches, financial loss, reputational damage, or even disruption of operations caused by a failure of technology systems and procedures. Security project managers are an essential requirement of several of the most important information security standards and frameworks. Due to the nature and sensitivity of their business activity, the UK government requires compliance with these frameworks for both public and private sector organisations who aim to do business with the public sector. In some HMG Organisations such as the MOD, the security project manager is also known as a Security Assurance Coordinator (SAC). The role of the Security Assurance Co-ordinator (SAC) is vital to the success of any MoD project seeking formal security accreditation, as well as JSP604 Rule 10 compliance for the satisfaction of network joining rules.

Service Description

Some of the information security initiatives that our security project managers have been involved in have included:

  • ISO 27001 ISMS Implementation:  The international standard that sets out the specifications of an information security management system (ISMS). Our Security Leads have improved Company’s security position and market value by implementing people, processes and technology ISMS controls and processes aligned to the ISO27001/2 standard.
  • MOD Security Assurance Coordinator:  Working with the project delivery team, our Security Assurance Coordinators successfully supported the Accreditation function of the capability and the Project Team.
