Be prepared…

Our experienced team can help you to prepare for and prevent future breaches to help you protect what matters the most.
Contact us if you are interested in any of the workshops on the following topics:

Incident response preparedness and crisis management exercise
Board briefing session
Penetration testing and simulated attack
Legal health check
Compromise discovery assessment

When an incident happens we can help you to be fully prepared, whether that is having the right data captured to support a full forensic investigation, or structuring an incident management governance process.


We help Boards (executive and non-executive directors) to understand the real risks posed by cyber security and privacy, and to clarify what their role should be to ensure those risks are effectively managed.


We can prepare you for what an attack might look and feel like - will you be sufficiently prepared to react?


A review of whether you have considered and addressed your critical legal obligations for cyber security and data protection.


This short, targeted and tactical session provides deep insight into active and historical breaches in your environment, and offers strategic recommendations on how you can best defend your critical assets against them.
