Cyber threats change over time – businesses change all the time. As a result, keeping a business cyber secure requires expertise & experienced–based decisions to make suitable adjustments to cyber defences over time. Our customers can benefit from access to that quality of security resource through our ongoing, retained CISO advisory service.

For most businesses Cyber Defence is a necessary, but not mainstream, activity.

A Cyber Defence Strategy is an essential business tool because it shows how to go beyond basic cyber security hygiene to tailoring of additional security measures to meet the risks that are specific to the business – it lays out a roadmap for continuing improvement over a number of years, as the risks evolve.
Cyber Defence Strategy service:
Cyber Defence Planning is necessary for most businesses – apart from the smallest – to ensure that the security measures that the business invests in are implemented fully, efficiently – and at optimal cost.
A Cyber Defence Plan may lay out the first steps (e.g. for the first year) in following a Cyber Defence Strategy
