Audit and review
Understanding the risks to your information is academic unless the controls required to reduce those risks are delivered. Audit and review ensures assurance controls are fit-for-purpose, correctly implemented and sustainable.
Using appropriate and cost-effective policy, technical, people and process controls we help you to develop:
- A structured and systematic approach for internal and external compliance requirements
- A framework to respond to legislative and regulatory changes
- Reduced risk management and compliance overhead
We harness our experience developing security solutions and implementing best practice in the UK security and intelligence sector.
Indeed, our experience delivering national infrastructure gives us a broad view of security that encompasses the technical, people, processes, and physical.
Our risk assessment approach links our clients’ business goals and key assets to the threats they face, generating mitigations for managing risks down to a level acceptable to senior business stakeholders. We use industry standard, repeatable methodologies that help clients choose an appropriate level of security – not a one size fits all approach.
Our risk assessment services cover: security maturity assessments, business risk appetite, asset valuation and criticality, threat analysis and modelling, vulnerability assessment and technical, behavioural and process risk assessments.
Our management of cyber risk is underpinned by a deep understanding of organisational ethos, culture and structures, where we develop approaches for employees to support and enhance your security controls. We help clients make informed decisions about where to invest security resources and manage priorities to meet business goals.
We support our clients in three key areas: cyber security governance, risk assessment mitigations and cyber advice and guidance.
Atkins offers advisory and implementation support to help organisations shape their cyber and information security architecture based on the threats they face.
