Savvy Business

Your essential cybersecurity business solution!

…because security is a ‘process’, not a ‘product’

Our unique Savvy Business programme contains the following vital cybersecurity pillars to provide you with secure foundations for business growth.

From where you are today, to a place where you have full visibility and understanding of your true cybersecurity posture. As every Savvy business owner understands, Cybersecurity is People, Process & Technology…in that order!

How the programme works…

STEP 1 - Primary Assessment

We conduct a bespoke assessment of your business ecosystem to identify risks and opportunities for development through all aspects of the cybersecurity lifecycle. Our assessments use real-world experience and pragmatism to ensure your assessment is suited to your size of business and sector of operation.

STEP 2 - Programme

We define a programme for you based on your business objectives, risk appetite, assessment findings, budget and timeline. We set Key Performance Indicators and Critical Success Factors. We prioritise actions and set achievable milestones.

STEP 3 - Platform

We introduce you to your digital dashboard. Here you will find your assessment results, analysis and infographics of strengths and weaknesses, and the prioritised action plan for remediation. You will also find a link to training, toolkits and resources.

STEP 4 - Process

We introduce you to your business coach, who will contextualise your assessment results and mentor you through the programme. They will talk you through the plan direct you to resources, training, and toolkits to successfully complete objectives.

STEP 5 - Performance Management

Your coach will work with you throughout, providing support and guidance to ensure your business gets ‘Cyber Savvy’, Safe and Secure. Data will be collected along the way to inform dashboard analytics, identifying areas for improvement and independently evidencing completion of objectives.

STEP 6 - Periodic Review

'If it cannot be measured, it cannot be improved'! That's why we conduct periodic reviews to ensure programme plan aims and objectives are being met and maintained. Deviations from the plan are observed in real-time and corrective actions are taken to ensure success.

Culture is King

"Amateurs hack systems, professionals hack people." (Bruce Schneier)

We often remind business owners and Senior Management Teams that Cyber is a people problem, with 90% of all cyber claims stemming from some human error or behaviour.

Your internal IT department or external IT provider with most likely offer cybersecurity services. You may already be paying for this level of support. However, how can you guarantee that your employees and broader team are behaving in a secure way? Do you have remote workers that you don’t perhaps have day-to-day visibility on?

Let’s use an example here; some people may fear being kidnapped by a stranger; however, the data tells us we’re most likely to be kidnapped by a relative. So how does this apply to cybersecurity you may ask? A common fear is for hackers to access your business data, but what if your employees were giving that data away, sometimes unknowingly, because they have not adopted a security mindset?

Your people are KEY to your business wholey adopting a solid security posture, which is why access to our Training Academy is included as standard in our Savvy Business programme.

The Training Academy

Offers a full range of 1-minute videos designed to be relatable and easy to remember so they can be applied when needed. The training implements the principles of microlearning with short lessons that are easy to consume, over a longer period of time to maximise the learning effect.

We launch new content every month to help stay up-to-date with the latest cybersecurity threats and attack vectors.

Interested in training your entire team? Let us take care of that for you without the excessive cost of money and time.
