GOVERNANCE IN A DIGITAL ERA NEEDS TO START IN THE BOARD ROOM NOT THE IT DEPARTMENT.
Digital and Information Security Consultancy, often referred to as Cyber Security Consultancy, can be a minefield as it is an unregulated market. Organisations can be at risk of being over sold to, or ill advised by IT or software re-sellers who do not carry security accreditation, or professional consultancy services that provide skilled informed security, risk management, governance or compliance advisory.
In addition, those knowledgeable but lacking skills in the field of consulting, can hinder your teams learning and understanding and cause delay through mis-communication and or frustration.
SECURITY EDUCATION, TRANSFORMATION AND ACCREDITATION
Customers and partners expecting increased levels of collaboration, continue to break down organisational boundaries. In contrast, increasing regulatory scrutiny is demanding a new, business aligned Information Security capability for managing information risks, aligned to enable these demands.
To most, security can be likened to ‘Whack-a-mole’, an ever changing target that no one can predict with certainty. The fundamental issue is that organisations see security as an attainable goal through the delivery of disparate projects and process when in fact security is a cohesive journey. We can help you with structured Security Transformation, embedding process, accreditation and certification within your organisation where relevant.
Effective Security Consultancy is regarded as a professional service, similar to advisory from legal and accountancy professionals, for effective governance in today’s digital world. Net-Defence is a regular educator for the IOD and a Trusted Partner of the founding UK Business Resilience Centre model (SBRC), approved by UK law enforcement.
