Working with police forces across the country.

In addition to our consultancy for Police, we have developed sector specific training aimed at educating Senior Information Risk Owners (SIROs) and Information Asset Owners (IAOs) and their particular roles and responsibilities, through close working relationships with NPIRMT and NPCC.Advent IM SIRO training testimonial from Kent and Essex Police force

Police Forces across the UK face ever increasing challenges affecting information security and assurance, as reliance on technology coupled with availability of data become key drivers in supporting future strategies. How do you ensure that information is available to those that need it in a manner that affords it appropriate protection and at the same time supports front line policing?

Budget constraints, Force mergers and a changing system accreditation and information risk management landscape only add to the challenges that need to be addressed.

Advent IM has worked extensively within UK Police Forces to develop workable, proportionate and pragmatic solutions to issues of governance, system information risk management, roles and responsibilities and compliance with Codes of Practice including PSN(P).
