Information Security and Privacy Health Check

Effective management of your organisations Information Security and Privacy has never been more important. With the risks continuing to multiply due to the increased sophistication of cyber-criminal organisations and continuing activity by international state-sponsored groups, combined with compliance requirements set out by both regulators and trading partners – your cyber security preparedness posture can easily become an inhibitor to business growth.

Cyber Security & Privacy

Information Security Health Check

Incidences of Privacy breaches, intellectual property theft, identify theft, industrial espionage, data loss or even complete system capability loss are increasing at a frightening rate.  It is critical to be aware and make deliberate choices in defining your security posture to find the right balance between cost, safety and productivity. Although vendors may promise silver bullets, independent assessment of your circumstances is required to understand the trade-offs required to maintain an acceptable risk profile.

Our Information Security and Privacy Health Check is designed to provide a cost effective assessment of your technology environment, and provide recommendations on how to address gaps in an effective and appropriate manner.   This “actionable advice” seeks to deliver improvements to reduce risk to an acceptable level rather than provide an infinite roadmap of unachievable security “Best Practice”.

IT Operations Health Check

The report will cover:

  • Review and assessment of security posture against the ASD essential eight.
  • Review of Office365 set-up and configuration against recommended practice.
  • Review of identity, credential and rights management practice.
  • Review of network and device access control and countermeasures.
  • Evaluation of end-user awareness of information security and Privacy.
  • Evaluation of response plans and clarity of roles & responsibilities.

Alternatively, we also provide bespoke Information Security reviews that are tailored to meet your specific requirement such as ISO 27001 or SOC2 compliance planning.

Our business outcomes

Beyond Technology advise businesses on how to optimise the use of IT to achieve business outcomes.

Beyond Technology Consulting has several ways to help CFO’s and CIO’s to improve their organisation’s balance sheet. Our consultants are highly skilled in identifying how to optimise your IT costs to ensure that you are taking advantage of the technology available to your organisation.

Many organisations carry a significant IT failure risk without understanding either the potential or consequences of failure. Quantifying the latent risk, and taking steps to mitigate it not only makes good business sense, it often provides significant improvement in the efficiency and availability of “business as usual” IT service.

With the growing demands on IT departments it can be all too easy to focus on rapidly expanding capability and addressing the day-to-day challenges of running the technology. Properly aligning IT to direct business requirements, while improving the communication channels between IT and the business delivers massive efficiency and capability improvements.

In most professions where information is asymmetric (i.e. the professional could take advantage of knowing more about the subject that they are advising you on) such as Lawyers and Doctors, the governing body can deregister the professional as stop them from practicing. This does not happen with Technology professionals so conflict of interest is a critical problem. Similarly when a technologist is heavily invested in one specific technology it often becomes their go-to solution (to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail). By Maintaining our independence, Beyond Technology Consulting ensures that you are provided with unbiased and actionable advice that you can trust is free from conflict of interest and be assured that we are not monetising the advice that we provide you.

"Actionable Advice" is accessible, accurate and is advice that is provided in a language and manner that does not require technical qualifications to understand. We ensure that our recommendations are fit-for-purpose with an understanding of the context of your organisation to be both affordable and achievable.

We focus on understanding the core requirements of the business so that our advice is based on your requirements not the avaliable technology. This ensures that you don't end up with a solution looking for a problem and ensures that technology outcomes will grow with your business and flex with changes in the technology.

We focus on understanding the core requirements of the business so that our advice is based on your requirements not the avaliable technology. This combined with a bias towards flexible technology solutions helps to provide technology outcomes that will grow with your business and flex with changes in the technology.

There are two key reasons that organisations don't undertake regular independent technology reviews. Firstly many boards and executive don't know that organisations like Beyond Technology Consulting exist and they are left thinking that the only options are IT Audits that are provided by the big accounting firms that don't provide any answers or actionable advice. The second reason is that they don't feel that they understand enough about IT to be able to get value from a review. Beyond Technology Consulting understands this and have designed our organisation to provide "Actionable Advice" that is accessible, accurate and provided in a language and manner that does not require technical qualifications to understand.
