Cyber security assessment services
Cyber security is no longer just for big brands or global conglomerates. The cyber threat landscape has evolved and cyber criminals and their methods are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The result? No business can afford to be without a cyber security strategy to help mitigate the impact of a cyber attack.
But with so many options on the market, where do you begin?
Start with a risk management framework, like some Cyber Essentials or IASME Standard.
Trust us to help
Pulsant has a team of cyber security experts and assessors that can help your organisation achieve certification and begin your cyber assurance journey. We are licensed to certify for the Cyber Essentials Scheme and the IASME governance standard.
Why do you need it?
Having a risk management framework in place demonstrates to customers, suppliers and other stakeholders that you have the right checks in place to combat the cyber threat and protect their data. It is also mandatory for tendering for public sector work and for certain industries.
Our assessment services
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed framework that addresses 80% of the most common cyber threats, while providing the foundation to tackle the remaining 20% that are specific to your business. This is the most popular best-practice framework in the UK.
Cyber Essentials Plus
This is an extension of the Cyber Essentials scheme, and can only be completed once Cyber Essentials has been successfully achieved. Cyber Essentials Plus includes an additional internal business scan and an on-site assessment to further protect your business.
This is an effective and affordable alternative of the international ISO27001 best-practice accreditation. This has been designed specifically for smaller businesses looking to reap the benefits of having a cyber security accreditation to their name.
IASME Gold Standard
This is an extension of the IASME Standard accreditation, and provides a more extensive review of operational controls. It also includes readiness assessments for Cyber Essentials and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), due to be introduced in 2018.
