Cyber security strategy and risk management services

Risk management and governance

Businesses can’t avoid cyber risk. Instead they need to proactively measure and mitigate those risks, so they have clarity on the decisions that matter. This requires a structured approach that defines the risk management and control frameworks underpinning your operational and cyber risk appetite. By using these frameworks to continually assess cyber risks and regulatory compliance, you can confidently adapt to new challenges and opportunities.

We provide a range of services to help you develop and implement a cyber risk strategy that reflects the evolving cyber security threat landscape and aligns with your strategic goals:

  • Strategy and target operating model
  • Policy, procedures, standards and controls
  • Cyber risk framework and strategy
  • Regulatory compliance or remediation

Controls assurance

There are a number of factors that underpin an organisation’s cyber security posture and ability to mitigate risk. Only by understanding the full spectrum of controls and capabilities can an organisation assess its cyber security maturity and identify priority areas. Our cyber controls assurance services combine our global client experience with a benchmarking assessment of your controls against industry standards such as NIST and ISO 27000, giving you clarity on how to improve your cyber resilience.

These include:

  • Independent maturity assessment and benchmarking
  • Automated control assessment
  • Supply chain assurance
  • Emerging technology cyber risk assessment

Risk reporting

Cyber security teams often struggle to frame risk in a broader business context, and the C-suite don’t always fully understand the potential ramifications of failing to properly mitigate cyber security risk. Businesses need an accurate view of cyber security risks that can be understood by all so it’s clear which decisions are a priority. We can help you strategically reduce cyber security risk and build resilient operations by assessing your cyber security maturity and building a principles-based governance framework.

Our data-driven approach to cyber security risk measurement and reporting ensures you continue to get actionable information that can be understood from the frontline to the boardroom. We create tangible insights that enable you to track the impact of risk reduction activities. Our services include:

  • Cyber reporting design and implementation
  • Scenario threat analysis
  • Automated cyber risk reporting
  • Automated metrics enablement
  • Mitre™ dashboarding
  • Advanced risk measurement approaches (including value at risk analysis and automated controls assessment)
