CYBER SECURITY: CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Metaphor IT’s consultancy services are provided by a highly qualified team of technical specialists with advanced knowledge in a plethora of security technologies. Our consultancy skills help organisations assess, define, design, deliver and manage security solutions to meet individual business challenges.
Our highly skilled consultants work with companies of all sizes to align their business objectives with the right IT strategy that does not compromise on security and integrity.
In the last few years, the scale and sophistication of IT security threats have grown at an explosive rate. Organisations have to contend with industrialised attacks, which, in some cases, rival the size and sophistication of the largest legitimate computing efforts.
A Consultative Approach to Security
Our project methodology has been based on industry standards such as Prince2 combined with many years of IT transformation project experience. Our approach ensures that the correct steps are taken from the moment of engagement right through to delivery and on going support and management. Correctly scoping and implementing a project considerably mitigates any risks associated with scope or budget creep.
Because all companies are different, we don’t deliver simple, out-of-the-box solutions. Our consultants will work very closely with you to understand your business and create a bespoke solution that is based on industry best practice and guidelines. Our consultant’s real-world experience encompasses organisations from property, finance and recruitment to law and accountancy as well as specialist vertices such as government, charity and education – and is supported by in-depth technical expertise.
The GDPR challenge and what it means for your business.
April 2016 saw the passing of the first major EU data protection law which now affects any business who trades with or holds information on European businesses or individuals.
The biggest outcome from this change in law is that organisations must implement and maintain appropriate security measures and solutions to protect personal data and will be fined of up to £16 million or 4% of your global turnover, if you fail to take adequate technical and organisational measures to protect data.
There are different actions you can take to help prepare your business for the new regulation. We are offering all businesses a GDPR readiness assessment which will provide recommendations to make sure you are compliant.
