    Our Security Maturity Assessment systematically evaluates your organisation's cybersecurity posture using the Capability Maturity Model, outlining actionable enhancements to fortify your cyber resilience. This assessment delivers a comprehensive overview of your digital security status, measures cybersecurity maturity, and identifies targeted strategies to mitigate risks. The process, from initial workshops to in-depth audits, uses a range of established standards to ensure a thorough understanding and robust improvement plan:

    o    ISO/IEC 27001 (2013 and 2022)
    o    NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF)
    o    NIST CSF – Ransomware Resilience (RR)
    o    IEC62443 for OT environments
    o    NEN7510 for Medical environments

  • Tabletop Cyber Crisis Management Workshop

    This workshop prepares your team to effectively handle cyber incidents by simulating realistic scenarios where participants can practice coordination and decision-making. The workshop encompasses a comprehensive preparation phase, targeted ransomware crisis training, an intensive cyber crisis exercise, and a thorough evaluation to identify improvements. This practical approach ensures that your team understands their roles, improves inter-departmental collaboration, and enhances overall cyber resilience. Specialised sessions are available for environments involving Operational Technology (OT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS).

  • IT Risk Assessment

    Our IT Risk Assessment service is vital for effectively managing site security and addressing diverse threats, from theft and vandalism to cyber-attacks by organised crime and hacktivists. This comprehensive assessment aligns with international standards like ISO 27001, COBIT 5 and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, meticulously examining key areas including: 

    o    Environmental security
    o    Physical security
    o    Asset management
    o    Access control
    o    Privacy & data management
    o    Human resource security
    o    Communications security

    The process is led by our expert consultants who specialise in regulatory compliance and security optimisation, making it ideal for organisations looking to enhance the security of their facilities and critical systems.

  • OT Risk Assessment

    Securing your organisation's Operational Technology (OT) environment is crucial due to the rising frequency of cyberattacks that threaten not only data integrity but also the safety and reliability of industrial operations. Our OT-specific risk assessment employs the Quantitatively Assessing Risk in Operational Technology (QAROT) methodology, which aligns with standards like IEC 62443-3-2, MITRE’s ATT&CK for ICS, and ISO 31010.

    This thorough approach identifies potential risks, evaluates the effectiveness of existing countermeasures and provides tailored recommendations for improvements. Through a series of workshops, we collaboratively diagram your network, assess asset vulnerabilities and quantify risks to prioritise mitigation strategies effectively. The final deliverable includes a detailed report with actionable advice, compliance insights, and a strategic follow-up plan to enhance your OT security posture and preparedness.


Information Technology

  • Threat Modelling

    Our Threat Modelling service is designed to proactively identify potential cybersecurity risks within your systems, applications, and operational chains. By utilising established methodologies such as STRIDE, MITRE’s ATT&CK™, Unified Kill Chain and Attack Trees, our experts deliver a comprehensive overview of potential threats and attack vectors. The process begins with a preparation phase to set the scope and gather necessary documentation, followed by an interactive session to brainstorm and visualize threats.

    The result is a detailed report that outlines the identified threats, provides a high-level mitigation plan, and offers tailored recommendations to enhance your security measures. This proactive approach enables your organisation to address vulnerabilities and strengthen defences against emerging cyber threats effectively.

  • VAPT

    Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) service is designed to enhance the cyber resilience of your systems by uncovering vulnerabilities in your website, applications, or infrastructure.

    Our service involves an initial preparation phase to gather essential data and define testing scope, followed by thorough testing where our ethical hackers use advanced tools and techniques to detect security weaknesses. The results are meticulously analysed to differentiate between false positives and actual vulnerabilities.

    The final detailed report provides a management summary, extensive risk analysis, and strategic recommendations for remediation. Optional retesting and periodic follow-up scans ensure ongoing security assurance and improvement. This systematic approach helps protect your vital data and ensures compliance with data protection regulations, reinforcing your control over security measures.

Operational Technology

  • Threat Modelling for Industrial Control Systems

    Threat Modeling service for Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA offers a proactive approach to identifying and mitigating cybersecurity risks within your operational technology systems. By graphically mapping information flows and potential vulnerabilities, this service provides a comprehensive view of threat vectors and possible attack paths. 

    These insights not only enhance security measures but also support the development of efficient testing scenarios, design adjustments, and additional mitigation strategies. Moreover, our workshops are designed to boost security awareness and foster collaboration among teams, equipping your organization with the knowledge and tools needed to execute strategic security enhancements effectively.


  • OT Cyber FAT/SAT

    The OT Cyber FAT/SAT (Factory Acceptance Test/Site Acceptance Test) service is crucial for ensuring the cybersecurity of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) from design to deployment. As cyber threats evolve, especially in operational technologies like ICS and SCADA, verifying the cybersecurity aspects during FAT and SAT becomes imperative. 

    This service includes an in-depth assessment of cybersecurity measures against industry standards such as IEC 62443, coupled with rigorous vulnerability assessments and penetration testing tailored to OT environments. Our process integrates seamlessly into your project lifecycle, enhancing resilience by:

    Design & Security Review: Ensuring that the design and security configurations align with project specifications and best practices.

    Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing (VA/PT): Conducted during FAT to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities before on-site implementation, with an extended scope during SAT to cover all system interfaces.
