      What Is Cyber Security Consultancy?

      Our cyber security consultancy takes a holistic approach, its scope extends beyond merely implementing security measures. It involves in-depth analysis, risk assessments, compliance evaluations, and the formulation of proactive measures to address potential vulnerabilities.

      By leveraging industry best practices and cutting-edge technologies, our consultants help businesses develop their cyber security strategy to stay ahead of emerging threats and regulatory requirements.

      Rather than reacting to security incidents as they occur, our experts focus on proactive planning and risk management to align security initiatives with business objectives.

      Why Cyber Security Consultancy Is Crucial For Your Business

      Organisations face a constant risk of being affected by cyber threats that jeopardise their operations, reputation, and bottom line. From ransomware attacks to data breaches, the consequences of a security breach can be devastating. Delivering cyber security consultancy in London and the wider UK to organisations of all sizes, we’ll work to reduce your risk profile.

      Our cyber security consultancy provides a proactive defence by identifying vulnerabilities and implementing robust security measures to prevent and mitigate attacks.

      One of the primary functions of cyber security consultancy is to safeguard data. Protecting sensitive information from unauthorised access is paramount for modern organisations. As such, our consultants work vigilantly to assess data security posture, identify potential weaknesses, and implement encryption, access controls, and data loss prevention measures to ensure data integrity and confidentiality.

      Our consultants also assist with understanding compliance obligations and implementing policies and procedures to meet regulatory requirements, avoiding costly fines and penalties.

      Akita’s Cyber Security Consultancy Approach

      Our cyber security consultancy is bespoke to requirements and business risk profile. Depending on the needs of the organisation, our approach will typically encompass four phases:

      Gap Analysis

      Our baseline of assessment of your cyber security will include actions such as assessing networks, systems, applications, and data to identify potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses. Through additional measures such as penetration testing and vulnerability scanning (as desired), and other assessment techniques, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your current security posture.

      Based on findings our team of experts will then work closely with your organisation to develop a customised cyber security strategy based on our findings. This strategy considers operational objectives, risk profile, and compliance requirements. We prioritise security initiatives based on their potential impact and feasibility, ensuring you tackle priorities. We’ll also breakdown technology and procedural measures so you can assess where process can shape security.

      Remediation & Implementation

      Following consultation and with a clear strategy in place, we proceed to remediate any identified vulnerabilities and implement any necessary security controls. This may involve strengthening access controls, implementing encryption, or deploying additional protection solutions. We’ll break down measures that can potentially be carried out by your team. And provide more information about how we can complete your requirements: from deploying security measures to reformulating internal policies.

      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.
