Optimise your IT security with strategic risk assessment services

With the increasing frequency of cyber attacks in our technology-driven world, companies are compelled to invest in IT security to safeguard their valuable assets. Unfortunately, the vast array of potential vulnerabilities can make it challenging to determine where to focus efforts and allocate resources to achieve the highest possible impact and value for your money. This is where security risk assessments come in.

By conducting a bespoke security risk assessment tailored to your organisation’s specific circumstances, you can acquire valuable information and insights that allow you to make informed decisions on how to defend your crown jewels. A security risk assessment helps to identify potential security threats that could compromise your organisation’s data and systems. It provides you with a roadmap to prioritise your investments in IT security, ensuring that you concentrate on the areas that need it the most.

Developing a structured approach to assess, mitigate, and monitor risks while integrating it into your organisation’s overall risk management framework requires expertise and experience in IT risk management. We know every organisation’s attitude to risk is different. It can be challenging to stay updated with the latest system vulnerabilities and technology risks without dedicated resources and expertise.

Bespoke risk management services

At RightCue, we understand that every organisation’s security needs and risk appetite are unique. That’s why we take a bespoke approach to risk management. Our experienced and qualified consultants evaluate your current security posture against established best practices and the current threat landscape. Our consultants have a wealth of experience working with organisations of all sizes across a diverse range of sectors.

We start by selecting the best practices that fit your organisation’s specific requirements, taking into account factors such as the technology you use, the sector you operate in, your clients, and the geography of your operation. We then evaluate these practices objectively using frameworks such as ISO 27005, ISO 31000, the NIST risk management framework and NCSC risk management guidance.

Our team uses a tried-and-true approach to risk management that is tailored to your specific business needs. We work with you to develop a comprehensive risk management plan that helps protect your organisation against potential threats. An risk based action plan is then created to optimise the impact of available resources.

Safeguard your business with RightCue’s risk management services

Over the years our team of experts have developed a robust range of risk management services including risk monitoring, IT risk assessment, technology risk management and cyber threat management.

We develop tailored risk management solutions to meet your business needs including:

1. Comprehensive risk assessment
Our comprehensive security risk assessment covers information governance, risk, and compliance. This assessment is especially useful for organisations that are conducting it for the first time or those that have considerable time elapsed since the last exercise was done.

We evaluate the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your critical systems, processes, and information – this forms the baseline of your IT security strategy and assists you with certifications such as ISO 27001, CSA Star and compliance with HIPPA, GDPR, PCI DSS, and more. Additionally, it aligns with the adoption and implementation of enterprise wide risk management frameworks.

We highly recommend this assessment for organisations operating in industries such as legal, financial, pharmaceuticals, and software development, where security breaches could lead to disastrous consequences. Our security risk assessment provides valuable insights to shape your IT security program.

2. Supply chain risk assessment
Majority of organisations now adopt a cloud-native strategy, or outsource their IT service management or software development. This allows them to access specialist resources at lower costs while they concentrate on their core business. However, this approach also introduces security vulnerabilities if not managed correctly.

Our supply chain risk assessments help you identify and proactively manage these threats. We assist you in selecting suppliers that align with your security strategy and policies, continuously monitor their risk posture, and provide independent assessments. By leveraging our expertise, you can be confident that your supply chain is secure and resilient against potential disruptions. Our services are flexible and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.

3. Acquisition due diligence
Acquiring a new business can be a complex process, especially when it comes to merging technology and integrating new security policies. At RightCue, we understand that change management is a crucial consideration during these transitions.

Our team of experts assists you in risk assessing the new business and creating a roadmap to integrate them into your current security policies, whilst ensuring your current certifications are not not impacted. We take a sensitive approach to change management, ensuring that any transitions are executed smoothly and with minimal disruption.

By conducting a thorough risk assessment, we help you identify any potential vulnerabilities or threats to your organisation’s security. This enables you to make informed decisions on how to integrate the new business and ensure that your security policies are still effective.

4. Technical risk assessment
Technical security risk assessment is a critical subset of broader risk assessment, focusing specifically on evaluating your organisation’s technology stack. This includes assessing your technology infrastructure, whether it’s on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both.

Our team conducts a comprehensive technical security risk assessment using established frameworks such as the CIS top 20, PCI DSS and the Cyber Essentials scheme. We evaluate your technology systems and protocols to identify potential vulnerabilities and threats to your security.

This is specifically useful when you do not have internal resources independent from your IT team to objectively assess your risk posture.

5. Risk management workshops and training
Risk management is an ongoing process that requires constant vigilance and up-to-date knowledge. That’s why we offer not only risk assessment services but also risk management workshops and training for your in-house resources. We believe that it’s essential for your team to have the skills and knowledge necessary to identify and manage potential risks effectively.

Our structured risk management methodology equips the team to perform risk assessments objectively and consistently. During our workshops, we bring key decision-makers from other business functions to help them understand how IT security risks can impact their role. This approach promotes better collaboration and risk security management, resulting in an improved maturity level of your information security program.
