Understanding formal Board responsibilities across jurisdictions and how to ask the right questions to make sure your team is taking cybersecurity seriously.

Helping the leadership understand their roles and the actions they need to be comfortable with taking should a cyber incident occur:

  • One to one education with a senior industry expert that allows executives to “ask the silly questions” when they don’t fully understand the technology, language or relative priority.
  • Focusing on a small set of security topics and helping bring to life the operational impact and practical steps to making services more secure.
  • Using real world examples from comparable organisations.
  • Running focused executive level table-top exercises on incident response to global cyber events.
Machine Learning and AI

Executive-level coaching on the use of big data, machine learning and AI to support business decision making. Providing insights into terminology, application and best practices for managing teams using advanced analytics capabilities day to day.

Cyber Risk Metrics

Supporting adoption of industry standard approaches to professional risk management metrics i.e. NIST, ISO, Gartner.

  • Using the Open Group Open FAIR risk model.
  • Establishes actionable metrics enabling decisions supporting direction setting and managing progress on risk reduction.
  • Benchmarking performance with industry standards approaches.
  • Creating a single, trusted data catalogue is managed through processes that are repeatable and always improving.

It enables multiple contextualised views e.g., enterprise risk, supply-chain, divisional. Multi-dimension for a holistic view: Technical being one aspect, includes operational performance, patching status, accreditation, audits and compliance status etc.

Enables actionable decision making to understand return on control evidenced through real data.

Zero Trust

Zero Trust is a cybersecurity concept and strategy that challenges the traditional approach of assuming trust within a network, and instead advocates for a model where trust is never automatically granted, even to users or devices within the organisation’s internal network. In a Zero Trust framework, security controls are implemented based on the principle of “never trust, always verify,” meaning that individuals, systems, and applications must continuously prove their identity and security posture before they are granted access to resources or data.

Outcomes include:

  • Briefings and introductions to Zero Trust.
  • Creation of Zero Trust architecture.
  • Review of the existing Zero Trust approach.
  • Recommendation of Zero Trust products and services.
  • Transformation programmes for Zero Trust implementation.
