Our Work

We have made the decision not to become a QSA company, since this allows us to maintain our impartiality and to provide cost-effective advice without the associated overheads. It also allows us to act as the interface between our clients and their chosen QSA company, an approach which greatly streamlines the compliance process for both parties. Our services are tailored to meet the requirements of each client, ranging from the provision of ad-hoc consultancy to a fully resourced partnership program and include:

• Gap analysis
• Scope review/reduction
• Solution recommendations/design
• Risk management
• Tailored security policies
• Liaison with QSA companies
• Assessment preparation and support

In addition, we have excellent working relationships with a number of QSA companies and provide our clients with expert advice in choosing the correct QSA for their business needs.
