Common Goals Of Cyber Security Consultancy
We work with organisations right across London and the South East. While some require general security consultancy, others have specific cyber security goals in mind. Below are some of those common goals that we’re able to support:
Cyber Consultancy Services For Compliance
- Cyber Essentials*
- Cyber Essentials Plus*
- ISO 27001 Consultancy
- Security Policy and Procedures Documentation
Cyber Security Audits & Scanning
IT Security Policies & Documentations
Documentation is often overlooked when it comes to cyber security preparedness. But even the best cyber security strategy can come apart without the right security policies behind it.
We typically help organisations to develop their security documentation to satisfy industry requirements, insurance policies or specific accreditations such as Cyber Essentials. Common requirements include IT joiners/leavers policies, disaster recovery frameworks, and broader Cyber Security Policies.
For organisations preparing for rapid growth, we can help put the internal security policies and frameworks in place that follow the best practices of organisations double or triple the size. In this way, your policies stay ahead of the pace of your internal security – preventing headaches along the way.

What’s The Value Of Our Cyber Security Consulting?
With the increasing use of digital technologies and AI, the risk of cyber attacks is increasing. 31% of UK businesses believe they are now being targeted on at least a weekly basis. And for medium and large businesses, the average cost of an effective attack is close to £20,000.
Cyber security consultancy provides organisations with the necessary expertise and resources needed to effectively manage cyber risks and protect against cyber threats. This can ultimately help prevent financial losses, damage to reputation, and other negative consequences of a cybersecurity breach.

Cyber Essentials & Plus Assessments
Cyber Essentials & Cyber Essentials Plus certifications are UK government-backed standards for cyber security measures and awareness. These Cyber certifications assess that adequate measures are in place to protect business systems and data.
Many industries now require Cyber Essentials as part of doing business, and it’s an increasingly common requirement of some types of business insurance. Having the Cyber Essentials certification can also be appealing for customers to know your organisation (and their data) is secure. And it’s also a requirement of local and national Government tendering.
As a certified testing organisation for Cyber Essentials, Akita can both prepare and certify organisations for Cyber Essentials. We can also undertake all necessary preparations for Cyber Essentials Plus.
Both certifications can be achieved either as a one-off consultancy project or as part of our managed cyber security consultancy service.
