Our Strategic Advisory Program is about adding value to your business; contributing expert opinion, advice and experience to your Cyber Security challenges. Our tailored suite of services is structured to address a number of core areas and can be together blended in packages to create an entire, third-party, ad-hoc or retained advisory service.
“Knowledge and Experience – two key aspects of great Cyber Security Programs”
Our team will work with you from a strategic, yet technically guided perspective to implement your new DevSecOps program, and embed Security as Quality into your SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). We advise on sourcing or outsourcing Cyber Security expertise and creating roadmaps for sustained change and value-adding of Cyber Security into your wider program development/strategy.
APPLICATION SECURITY ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
“Building the Foundations of Security and Safety into your Architecture”
Fundamental to the concept of Security from a technical, workflow and business logic perspective is sound application security architecture and design. Our team of experts will work with your teams/partners throughout the development life cycle and engineering to ensure fundamental principles of design are baked in, best of breed security knowledge is shared and that your environments leverage the fundamentals of good design in their rollout.
MERGERS, ACQUISITIONS & DUE DILIGENCE
“A Third Party Perspective Risk Assessment During the Critical Due Diligence Phase”
If you are looking to acquire a new business for its IP, expertise, market or other reason, we can add value by taking an impartial look at the business from a fundamental Cyber Security risk perspective and provide open, honest counsel on the level of risk and maturity therein. By drawing on our Security Testing program we can identify direct risks of exploitation where they may exist; using threat modelling and other Assessment/Advisory services to help you understand the information and application/infrastructure/cloud assets exposure of the business in question.
EMBEDDED TEAMS & PROGRAM AUGMENTATION
“Enhance your team with Expert Knowledge at an Advisory or Technical Level”
All clients are different, using a variety of models from retaining their own in-house Security expertise through to deploying a fully outsourced model. Where deep expertise is needed, our model supports two valuable people options creating significant value to client projects;
Embedded team: 30-90 day Short Duration Projects
Example: Working to spin up a Red/Blue Team assessment capability internally
Augmented team: 90 days+ Longer Duration Projects
Example: DevSecOps and embedded project lifecycle programs; code review/release cycle
CISO ADVISORY COUNSEL
“Retained or Ad-Hoc Advisory Counsel for Cyber Security”
Like many other business functions, external advisory is becoming popular in the CISO circle where we can arrange a 1:1 mapping of a specific person to give expert advice and opinion on a range of matters. Alternatively, we can provide the CISO access to a pool of expertise ad-hoc to assess new stacks, designs, solutions, integrations or to give wider opinions and advisory on deep technical matters from a third-party perspective.
