We offer you complete peace of mind in the resolution of your most difficult and intractable security problems, no matter where in the world. We decode the lexicon of security and make it accessible, understandable and affordable. And we help you navigate the ever-changing complexities of the security, intelligence and cyber markets.
We offer a light touch, discreet security health-check for your organisation. We bring in a small team of experts with skills, knowhow and backgrounds tailored to your needs, to give you an independent and objective view of your vulnerabilities, risks and security requirements. If your business is in good shape we will tell you. If not, we will help you get fit for purpose.
We help review and, if necessary, design and then implement your security strategy. We help get your leadership, governance, people, processes, technology, organization and security culture into exactly the right posture for your business.
We offer you access to cyber experts who are not trying to sell you a product. Our cyber advisors have all led organisations; they are senior cyber experts but they are also operational leaders who understand business risks and balance of investment decisions. We can review your current risk assessment and cyber investment plans and give you an objective, decoded, brand agnostic view of your current status and your future needs.
Our advisors have lifetimes of experience in reacting to and managing crises of all shapes and forms. We can help you ensure your business resilience plans are fit for purpose, that you and your leadership teams are trained and ready for the crisis when it comes, and we can be on call to help you react and recover in the aftermath of a crisis.
We also have specialist skills in crisis resilience, supporting leadership and stress management. This delivers improved staff retention and raises overall performance. See our Resilience section.
All organisations need a certain amount of training in order to stay on top of their games, or to grow into the future. We can review your current security training needs and help you plan for the future. We can offer you access to hard to find training experts drawn from renowned security organisations and agencies who will teach and inspire your teams and help you grow the human and technical capabilities you need.
A new CEO of a well-known insurance company saw that on paper his compliance and data security was all good, but he sensed something was wrong. He asked us to do a discreet ‘health check’, reporting only to him. Sure enough, other than compliance boxes ticked, almost everything else needed attention – urgently. He was carrying huge data risk. Working together with his executives and staff, we did a full review over three weeks and gave him a cost effective digital security strategy that put things right.
A successful and rapidly growing software company was about to go international, spreading well beyond their London offices. They realized that they needed a much more sophisticated approach to corporate security that would allow them to continue to process highly sensitive data with confidence, while allowing their software engineers the freedom to be creative. Over four weeks we worked with them to develop a security strategy that was entirely in tune with their culture, ethos and business needs.
Following an acquisition a company was having to conduct a painful downsize. The CEO had real concerns about bad feeling amongst the staff who handled sensitive commercial information. We worked with him and his executives to mitigate this ‘insider’ risk, putting in place leadership, management and control measures that ensured integrity throughout the downsizing process while being highly sympathetic to the affected people.
A large multi-national business needed a team to solve a serious security problem in one of their complex engineering projects in a Middle Eastern country at very short notice.
