Security Health Check
Helping You Make the Right Decisions to Reduce Risk
A 2023 UK government report states just 29% of all businesses conducted a security assessment during the previous year.
Question: Why do so few organisations take the time to conduct an assessment?
Answer: It’s hard! Assessments require specific skills and experience to be successful.
And while assessments typically uncover some challenges:
Fewer controls in place than people thought.
Risks are not presented in a business context.
Some risks have never been articulated.
Investment needed to fix gaps is poorly understood.
Assessments also present opportunities. Now you can:
Define and track risk reduction from a clear position.
Prioritise activity to address highest-risk areas first.
Develop a security improvement plan.
Provide a business case for security investment.

The Foundation for Improvement

Knowing you have problems is essential to solving them, but then you need a plan to achieve positive business outcomes.
If you don’t know what to fix first and how, you will struggle to improve and maximise value.
