By aligning the knowledge of the threats you face with an understanding of your environment, you are able to maximise the effectiveness of your security spend and target your resources at the critical locations. All of this is driven from your business strategy by identifying where it may be at risk from a range of threats from a malicious insider right through to Advanced Persistent Threats (APT).
Cyber Defence covers a wide range of activities that are essential in enabling your business to protect itself against attack and respond to a rapidly evolving threat landscape. This will include cyber deterrents to reduce your appeal to the attackers, preventative controls that require their attacks to be more costly, attack detection capability to spot when they are targeting you and reaction and response capabilities to repel them.
Typically a Cyber Defence engagement will include a range of services that are aimed at long term assurance of your business, from the understanding of how security impacts your business strategy and priorities, through to training and guidance that enables your employees to establish the right security culture. At the same time the engagement will include specialist technical analysis and investigation to ensure that you can map out and protect the paths the attackers will use to compromise your most sensitive assets. These activities will also enable you to obtain evidence of any threats that may already have breached your defences and providing the capability to manage or remove them as needed.
Using this blend of services, Cyber Defence provides the assurances you need to run your business free from worry about the threats that it faces and to ensure that your security strategy utilises your resources in the most effective manner.
