Improve your business.
There's a natural tendency to think of risk management as a way of avoiding disaster - staying out of prison, staying out of court and staying out of the headlines. However, risk management isn't just about avoiding those disasters. If you want to succeed then risk management is vital to ensuring your business is set up to achieve its goals.
Clearly this means having a proper understanding of risk across your organisation, and how risks might threaten your corporate objectives and strategy. It requires detailed assessment, measurement and monitoring of risk. This detailed insight into the internal and external operating environment can become a key enabler for better corporate decision making. In other words, it can help you achieve your goals and deliver increased value to key stakeholders – which can come in the form of reduced compliance and operating costs, or improved business performance.
We can help you and cover all aspects of the ongoing challenge to manage risk and compliance while reducing costs.
Following our standardised approach, our accredited and highly skilled security consultants can help you to define and create end-to-end processes around your governance, risk and compliance needs and embed these into your organisation. We are also able to help with specific GRC requirements such as implementing security awareness programs for your staff, defining a governance operating model or performing a gap analysis.
We can also provide managed security solutions which will address requirements related to law and legislation (PCI-DSS, HIPAA, EU Data Protection Directive and Regulation, Data Protection Act, Sarbanes- Oxley Act, BASEL III, and more) or fulfill bespoke requirements.
We have access to a huge pool of security talent. With over 2500 security professionals around the world, of which 500 are security consultants, you’ll have access to specialists in cyber defence, risk and compliance, application and data security and infrastructure. We can offer you the combined vast knowledge and experience of our highly skilled network security consultants alongside proven methodologies.

Risk management is about your willingness to take risks, knowing which risks to take and when to take them”.
