We help large organisations assess, improve and protect business critical systems and operations from the increasing threat of cyberattacks.

We embed security at the heart of your business operations and put in place risk management frameworks to mitigate risk and improve public confidence in your organisation.

The threat from cyberattacks is continually growing in size, complexity and frequency, posing a risk to business critical systems/operations. This challenge is compounded by the fact that many organisations are moving towards digital working models.

At Wavestone, we have an integrated approach to risk management and cybersecurity, addressing technology, regulatory compliance, business practices and customer service. We combine our in-depth knowledge, gained through helping organisations handle attacks, with our consulting experience to enable clients minimise the cyber risk and adopt a secure-by-design model, from strategy to implementation.

We have developed three highly-focused risk management and cybersecurity services to help organisations rapidly assess their current security and risk levels in the business and benefit from valuable independent advice and recommendations. These include:

  • Cybersecurity risk assessment: to assess your exposure to threats and define your cybersecurity action plan that enables your organisation to manage the threats effectively
  • Cloud risk assessment: to assess the risks of existing cloud services and risks of migrating to new Cloud services/ Office 365, and establish a practical action plan to mitigate them
  • GDPR compliance assessment: to assess your organisation’s readiness for GDPR compliance and establish a practical approach to address the most critical data privacy risks and avoid heavy financial penalties

  • Organisation and governance
