Government security in a changing landscape.

*** Our MySecurityManager offers a virtual solution in addition to our usual services, to allow the continuity of vital government information security, data protection and digital transformation projects. ***

The demands on government, non-governmental bodies and their third party commercial suppliers to prove information is appropriately secured are increasing. Any system carrying, storing or transmitting protectively marked data requires an appropriate technology and information risk management process to be carried out. This is to ensure that proportionate security controls have been applied to safeguard the system’s information assets and provide assurance to Accreditors and other key stakeholders.

In a changing Government security landscape, individuals who create and process data and documents must understand how that data should be marked and protected and implement agile, pragmatic and proportionate risk managed controls throughout its lifecycle. Wherever there is a need for authoritative, expert advice on implementing risk management methodologies, policy or how to mark, process, handle and dispose of data in line with the GCS, our CESG Certified Professional (CCP) certified Consultants can help. Our deep industry experience and links within Government and Cabinet Office, NCSC and the wider IA community, combined with our full spectrum of independent Accreditation and Risk Management services offers our clients an unrivalled and compelling proposition for your cyber security needs.
