Cyber security Digital environments, real world threats

Creating integrated cyber security strategies

Cyber security 1

In the digital era businesses are increasingly vulnerable to adversaries enabled by a spectrum of hostile cyber tools and techniques.

From theft of information to disruption of critical systems, today’s businesses are at constant risk of serious compromise of their vital assets. Piecemeal and purely technical solutions are very likely to fall short. Our approach to cyber security emphasises physical and personal vulnerabilities as much as technical gaps.

Risk Advisory has partnered with cyber security experts Dysart Solutions to enhance our information security consultancy services. We have worked with governments and corporates to design their cyber security strategies and preparations. We routinely scrutinise third party cyber products and services, ensuring best-fit for clients exact needs – often exposing weaknesses in current ‘impenetrable’ defences.

Delivering solutions

As part of UK Government overseas cyber security capability building programmes, we have provided ongoing cyber consultancy and mentoring services to European and Middle Eastern governments. This includes assisting with the development of national cyber security strategies, policies and maturity road maps, as well as technical assistance in designing cyber solutions and training new cyber staff.

Cyber Olympics

There are significant security and high reputational risks in running global sporting competitions and major events - these have become targets for protesters, terrorists, and cyber threat actors.

We specialise in providing cyber security services for sporting and major events. Our consultants played a significant role in the risk assessment, mitigation and delivery of cyber defences for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympics Games, since which we have continued to focus on providing similar services for major event organisers and host city governments and agencies.
