Our process

We follow a clear 4-step process that maximises results whilst minimising impact to your day-to-day operations.

01. Business-first engagement

Our goal is to protect your business - and that starts with understanding it. 

Our health check begins by interviewing your CEO and other senior management to uncover the biggest cyber threats to your business, and the impact they could have. 

We use this information to identify your key risks, which will form the foundations of our review. 

02. Control selection

Next, we identify the controls that need to be in place to manage your cyber risks. 

These are based on a hybrid of the CIS Critical Security Controls and ISO 27001 Annex A, but if your business uses different controls, we will tailor our health check to those. 

If your business handles extremely sensitive data, we may introduce special controls such as air-gapping networks to step up your level of protection.

03. Control & risk assessment

Our assessments encompass people, processes and technology. This means checking that you have the right talent in place, the processes are robust and repeatable, and that the technology is functioning as required. 

We will rigorously analyse your controls, determining how they could fail and pursuing a line of questioning until we are certain of its impossibility. If this cannot be proven, we mark it as a fail and risk assess accordingly. 

04. Presentation of findings

As the final step in your health check, we deliver a detailed report containing cyber business risks, scored against potential impact, complete with quick wins to rapidly improve security.

You will also receive prioritised recommendations containing detailed descriptions and risk levels, alongside an in-depth analysis of controls to help your technical team understand security issues.
