What is Digital Assurance?

Digital Assurance is the continual process of managing and protecting the complete digital ecosystem of your organisation. This includes digital innovation, digital transformation, cyber threat intelligence and protection against such cyber threats.

As blended working and multisite operations become the norm, businesses look to technology to improve their teams’ remote protection, efficiency, and productivity whilst also seeking to continually enhance the customer experience.

A shift to cloud and hybrid architectures asserts that knowledge, management and protection of a company’s digital attack surface is a board item to be prioritised.

Coupled with the upsurge of attacks on Microsoft and other corporate applications, there is a weight of evidence to demonstrate that tick box exercises for data and cybersecurity will no longer appease regulatory bodies and insurance companies. Thus, a more proactive and continual approach to information security and its enabling technology infrastructure is required.

Our team provides digital assurance services and testing solutions to match the needs of today’s businesses. With the expansive growth of digital transformation, digital innovation and digitalisation, organisations are faced with the huge challenge of managing the increased risk that comes with leveraging digital solutions. Whether this increased risk is through the use of data storage, remote working or inputs from digital assets such as third-party data, we offer advice and practical support for navigating and sustaining the transition from paper to digital.

Here are our key solutions to help you ensure your business prepares, responds and adapts.

Cyber Security Advice Service

To help you understand how secure your organisation is, we offer a range of services on an advisory, consultancy or managed basis. We know that every business is different and as such our services and solutions are built to be flexible to fit around you. Our team compromises of experienced cyber professionals, accredited compliance assessors and auditors and ICT experts and we will work with you or alongside your existing teams. For those services that fall outside of our direct offering we have a range of partnerships to meet all Digital Transformation and Information Security needs.

Supply Chain Analysis

Supply chains are wider, longer, and more complicated than ever before. Suppliers themselves pose legal, logistical, regulatory, reputational, and cyber risk. As Company Directors maintain their obligations to protect company and assets alike it is evident that our understanding of data processing and information security needs to stretch beyond the realms of our own recognised attack surface.

Boards and companies will all respond differently to this third-party risk, but the message is clear, at Board we are all accountable for cybersecurity risk, and we should all expect greater scrutiny as to how we are responding to that risk.  In parallel, we are increasingly seeing insurance underwriters getting extremely specific about their cyber risk expectations for our insurance cover.

If you are looking for a partner that can help assess your internal and supply chain risk, then contact the Digital Assurance team on 01242 246 700.

Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme that will help you protect your organisation against a whole range of most common cyber attacks. We have put together the information you need to know, to ensure your business is ready to anticipate, prepare and respond should action be required.

This self-assessment option gives you protection against a wide variety of the most common cyber attacks. This is important because vulnerability to simple attacks can mark you out as target for more in-depth unwanted attention from cyber criminals and others.

ISO 27001

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system within the context of the organization. It also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. The requirements set out in ISO/IEC 27001:2013 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature.

Often sitting alongside a comprehensive cyber security program, ISO 27001 helps to set the principles, processes and good practice of an organisations IT infrastructure.

If you are looking to review or renew your IT infrastructure before approaching ISO quality standards accreditation we can also help you understand and implement what good looks like for your business. Take a look at the our Technology Transformation Workshops below.

Technology Transformation Workshops

Digital disruption is hitting us with great speed. Most companies want to stay in it to win it. How do you go about ensuring you have focus on the right people, partners, processes and projects to get it done whilst still running the core business?
