Security Consultancy

Our security consultancy services have been developed through extensive industry experience and hands on knowledge gained through the delivery of security testing, and in response to security incidents.

We have a deep understanding of where an organisation’s approach to information security can fail and where improvements can be made to develop policies and procedures that enable the organisation to achieve its objectives.

Through our consultancy service we are able to translate this technical insight into clear business focused advice and guidance, specific to your own business needs.

IS Policy

As an organisation we have extensive experience in the successful delivery of information security policy related projects. We believe in adopting a bespoke approach to each project to ensure the most effective policy development, organisational buy-in and consistent implementation. To this end, we will therefore work in collaboration with your organisation to ensure that the most appropriate and cost effective approach is undertaken.

PCI DSS Advisory

Any business which handles payment card data is required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).  For many organisations, particularly smaller ones, the standard’s prescriptive approach can be the first time a business has considered certain security defences.

Since its introduction in 2005, our 7 Elements consultants have been working with various businesses to ensure their security meets the requirements of the standard.  We offer bespoke, practical advice on how to handle card data securely and to manage the scope of an assessment.

We pride ourselves on identifying solutions, whatever the budget, which deliver genuine security improvement that goes beyond just compliance.

New Business Package

Starting a new business is often fraught with challenges and unforeseen circumstances, and effective protection of data and intellectual property is key to ensuring avoidable failure.

Having an effective information security approach is also vital for any new business but this can often be difficult to achieve due to lack of internal expertise during the initial stages of a company’s life, and external consultancy costs can be prohibitive.

To address this, we deliver a new business package providing the policies and procedures required for these early years at a fixed and affordable rate. All of our start-up packages are based on an initial risk assessment to ensure that the policies and procedures are fit for purpose and will support the organisation’s risk appetite and business objectives.
