Consulting and Advisory Services

With a wealth of experience across the investment management and banking sector, our core consulting and advisory services are built around 5 key offerings:

Our Cyber Security Practice supports companies in assessing their preparedness to counter cyber-attacks and recommends how to plug any gaps that are identified.

We audit all of the information relevant to cyber-security including security policies, processes, data and all supporting infrastructure.

We then produce a detailed report which identifies weaknesses in your current systems and recommends the best solutions for your company. The report includes an executive summary for the Board, which estimates the effort and cost to implement the recommendations. This arms you with the information you need to put risk mitigation strategies in place.

The audit process is carried out by our consultants who have a minimum of 15 years of experience in cyber information and security, in-line with the NCSC 10 Steps to Cyber Security, incorporating the latest information security management standards (ISO27001).

Our team comply with both international and domestic standard practices, including those set by the Centre for Internet Security (CIS) and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
