Security Consulting

What is Security Consulting?

SecurityIssues

Simply put security consulting is providing advice and guidance to those organisations who are not large enough to have the required expertise and knowledge within the current work force, or have a need to supplement the current team with subject matter experts.

The Challenge

Designing, implementing and maintaining an information security capability is a wide and complex subject and often carried out poorly as an integrated process with the business.

With so many security vendors offering software and technology security solutions, often using high pressure selling techniques, the fear uncertainty & doubt surrounding such emotive words as “hacker”, virus, worm and the financial penalties that a security breach may bring; it is easy to purchase and implement expensive solutions that are often poorly configured, not implemented in a complimentary manner and often only deal with part of the overall security requirement.

The key challenge is to ensure that any solution is in support of the business and proportionate to the level of risk being faced.
