Predict, protect, respond

Strategic insights enable long-term information security planning by identifying your unique cyber security risks.

We help organisations develop and implement effective information security programmes by focussing on the specific threat to key assets and unique vulnerabilities.

Cyber threat intelligence

Delivered through subscription service or bespoke projects, our cyber threat intelligence service provides:

  • Strategic threat intelligence – forward looking intelligence that helps you understand global developments and trends in the cyber threat landscape. This informs your cyber security strategy and places cyber security threats in the context of the broader threat landscape.
  • Tactical threat intelligence – actionable intelligence analysing the tactics, techniques and procedures of cyber threat actors targeting organisations across the world. 
  • Operational threat intelligence – understand and analyse the immediate threats to your organisation detected from a range of open and closed sources. 

Threat, risk and maturity assessments

We evaluate your current preparedness and improve security in an intelligent, cost-effective and comprehensive way across the organisation. This is done through a process of threat assessment, asset evaluation and gap analysis.
