Risk assessments

What is a risk assessment?

A risk assessment is a full spectrum diagnostic process which uncovers existing vulnerabilities in your organisation and leaves you with a clear pathway to security & compliance.

We find out about your business, find out how your core intellectual property functions, how your services are structured and how they make money. Risk assessments are about understanding your company first before we identify any risk.

Our approach is consultative. We get to know your operations process, how your clients use your products and how you run your business.

For example, If you have all your intellectual property on a single product, we develop a risk management strategy for that specific product. Or if your service surrounds user data, we would focus on the security systems surrounding where your data is kept. By understanding the core areas that your company needs to stay operational you are able to create a prioritised list of vulnerabilities.

Ultimately, it’s understanding your company, how you operate and where you could go wrong.

We cover the following areas:

  • Technical breaches

  • Validation of internal security processes

  • Network misconfiguration

  • Administrative access control

  • Social engineering

  • Invoice mispayment

  • Data breaches

  • Negligence

  • Security awareness

  • Incident response planning

Why do I need it?

  • Organisations need to do something about cyber security – but what exactly do you need to action? 

  • We diagnose what the principal risks to your business are, prioritising your activities around maximising impact & limiting resource usage.

  • Coming out of a risk assessment gives you a plan allowing you to make your company safer against a cyber security breach.

Each member of our team specialises in a different area, ranging from cloud penetration to GDPR regulations. So when we combine our skill sets, we achieve a synergy of services that covers all areas of security.

We operate in a changing landscape that doesn’t stay still for a given time. Our job is to keep on top of that by keeping an eye on industry developments and new technologies. We regularly work with the NCA to find out what the latest threats are, reading the vulnerability register and constantly identify threats through on-site incident response cases. It’s a method of prediction, looking at trends and understanding what the future problems are likely to be
