Effective leadership is a critical component of good security and accountability. At TrustedIA, we help you develop an appropriate and effective security governance strategy, ensuring that it is properly resourced with Board-level oversight of security compliance and auditing processes, and security controls are applied with consideration to threats and information risk.
Defining and communicating your businesses attitude and approach to information risk management is crucial. The lack of an effective risk management and governance strategy may lead to exposure to unnecessary risk, an overly cautious approach to risk leading to missed business opportunities or additional costs and a lack of confidence that policies are being consistently applied across the business.
As businesses face an ever increasing list of statutory, regulatory, contractual and legal compliance obligations, a good understanding of information security and compliance is fundamental to the success your business and the avoidance of legal proceedings or regulatory penalties.
A threat assessment will help you understand the threat landscape effecting your business. It will document your business-critical assets, determine how each can be compromised and identify Threat Sources that would benefit most from a successful compromise of your business systems. The output will determine which assets present the biggest risk to your business and can ensure that resources are distributed to best protect your business in a cost effective manner.
It is imperative that businesses understand what risks are operating within their network infrastructure, hosted services and applications. Vulnerability assessments will help identify vulnerable attack surfaces before they can be exploited by cyber criminals.
Our highly experienced consultants will work alongside your network architects and developers to help understand the service that you wish to provide. We will ensure the solution protects your business and stakeholders against common attacks, ensure that a successful compromise is detected in a timely manner, minimise the impact and avoid disruption.

A digital footprint refers to the traces your business leaves online. Much of it you may know about; websites, social media and news stories, but worryingly there is much more that you may not have visibility of, such as metadata within online documents and user account details compromised in online data breaches. Our assessment tools will scour the internet searching for your digital footprint and we will provide a comprehensive report detailing our findings.
Through a comprehensive question and answer workshop with your key stakeholders, we will profile your Cyber and Information Security maturity against a number of highly regarded industry standards and guidelines. Our consultants will highlight what you are doing well, and identify opportunities for improvement to ensure your resources are prioritised and targeting the right areas in a cost-effective manner.
