What makes us different?

Consultancy Services Overview

Advent IM Information Security Consultancy, GRC Consultancy, Physical Security Consultancy, Business Continuity Consultancy and Data Protection Consultancy

Advent IM has a common-sense approach to information and physical security. But what makes us different?

We believe in partnering collaboratively with you – not doing consultancy to you – working within standards and frameworks that support Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) principles; which is why our services are bespoke to your specific business needs and drivers and are therefore sustainable and scalable to meet business change.

This will deliver an effective assurance platform giving you a competitive edge and your stakeholders, third parties and customers confidence in your commitment to security. And that’s why we have long-term partnerships with 95% of our customers.

Our consultancy services cover:

Using frameworks, standards, regulations and legislation such as:

  • Cyber Assessment Framework (CAF)

Overall I found Advent to be a very professional outfit with a friendly and delivery focused approach, thereby allowing project challenges to be tackled together in an open and swift manner. I only have good things to say with regards to Advent and would not hesitate to work with them again or recommend them to another government organisation.

Colleagues who have engaged Advent IM after seeking my recommendation(s) have, without exception, thanked me for putting them forward.


Their deliverables are of a consistently high standard and the services they offer are amongst the best value-for-money in their area of expertise.


Advent IM stands-out from the crowd because of its willingness to “go the extra mile” and go beyond the strict confines of deliverables defined under the terms of a contract.


I have benefitted from Advent IM’s excellent understanding of Information Assurance. This has been increasingly pertinent where data is being exchanged across physical, technical and geographic boundaries. Advent’s expertise in the area of ISO27000 series has shone through on this (as has their knowledge on other standards) and has been key in how risk management has been progressed.


Advent IM’s services were invaluable in the development of a risk treatment plan that was cost effective and proportionate. They demonstrated exemplary influencing skills by advocating an ISO 27001 approach to our suppliers, to the extent that this approach to managing the ISMS has been adopted by the supplier worldwide.


Advent IM provided highly professional, knowledgeable, commercially aware and impartial services to VOSA enabling us to meet our information assurance delivery objectives for the past two years.


Their approach has always been pragmatic, proportionate and cost conscious.
