Managing confidential data and the surrounding risks is no small task. 

You need an efficient approach that helps you align governance initiatives with your organisation's overall business strategy. An approach that can be adjusted over time.

After collaborating with you to understand and assess your information security needs, our professionals help you identify a governance framework to fit your needs. Some widely used governance frameworks include:risk consulting

  1. International Organisation for Standardisation (e.g., ISO 27001/27002)

  2. National Institute of Standards and Technology (e.g., NIST SP800-54)

  3. Industry best practices from the SANS Institute, ISACA, ISC2

If they're not a good fit, our team helps you adapt or blend standard frameworks or custom tailors a unified controls framework to address your unique needs.

Viewing your organisation holistically, we assess your organisation's security and privacy technical, compliance and risk management environments. Following the evaluation, your team will know where any existing holes are, how to fix them and how best to manage the metrics going forward.
