Tackling cyber security risks effectively

Cyber Security

Protecting intellectual property, sensitive customer information, and other business-critical information requires a comprehensive security strategy that closely aligns with business objectives without being burdensome.

Our Cyber Security services help clients solve their complex security, privacy and risk issues through five key capabilities: Strategy & Governance, IT Risk, Cybercrime & Breach Response, Business Continuity Management and Data Centre Advisory.

Your Challenges and Concerns

  • Does your strategy incorporate information security? Are the measures adequate to comply with legal requirements and standards?
  • Are your systems secure from both internal and external threats? Are you in compliance with good practices? What would be the impact of a security breach?
  • Do you suspect a fraud? Do you want to identify the suspects and gather forensics evidences? Do you want to implement preventive measures to minimise the risk of fraud and enable early detection?
  • Can your business resist major turbulences? Can you continue operations if your primary location is inaccessible for an extended period?
