Strategy, Risk and Compliance

Integrating cybersecurity into your business strategy

To adapt and grow in a challenging environment, organizations must have a transparent and accurate view of cybersecurity risks that gives clarity on the decisions that matter. Our team works with organizations to connect cybersecurity, business, and compliance risks and bring them to the forefront of transformative decision making. We help our clients assess, design, strategize, implement, and maintain an effective cybersecurity and risk management program that protects against threats, manages and monitors risk, enforces regulatory and compliance requirements, and propels transformation.

Our offerings

As companies pivot toward a digital business model, exponentially more data is generated and shared among organizations, partners and customers. Our team of dedicated professionals help our clients ensure they are protected by developing transformation strategies focused on security, efficiently integrating and managing new or existing programs to deliver continuous operational improvements, and increasing their strategic cybersecurity investments while aligning to business imperatives.

Capability Assessments

As companies pivot towards a digital business model, understanding how your critical assets and data are protected, accessed, and shared among organizations, partners and customers is critical to making principles-based and data-driven cyber risk decisions for your organization.

How we can help: Our team helps benchmark your cybersecurity capabilities against industry standards, peers and leading practices to identify key initiatives that can improve the effectiveness of your cybersecurity programs.

Strategy & Program Design

Security transformation is driven by principles-based, risk and data-informed cyber strategies that focus on driving change in a cost-effective, actionable, and culture centered manner. 

How we can help: Our team of cybersecurity strategists help organizations develop tailored cybersecurity strategies, governance models, and transformation programs that are informed by the risks, threats, and trends driving your industry, and aligned with the strategic objectives and culture of your organization.

Risk Management

Organizations across industries take risks while pursuing their strategic business imperatives. However, as they shift their business models to become more digital, the inherent cyber risks in their pursuits are increasing more than ever before. In addition, the complex and evolving threat landscape poses significant challenges. One of the underpinning flaws in the risk management approach leveraged by many organizations is a ‘compliance’ centric mindset that still is being adopted by many organizations. A shift to a ‘risk and threat’ based mindset will help organizations adequately address cybersecurity risks.

How we can help: We assist clients in building a sustainable capability to manage cybersecurity risks throughout the risk lifecycle (identify risks and threats, assess the risks, respond to risk, monitor and report risk). We help organizations facilitate the maturation of capabilities by providing data and quantitative driven risk management services, including:

  • Design cyber risk management capabilities

  • Assessment of cyber risk management program maturity

  • Operate cyber risk management program

Third Party Risk Management

As greater reliance continues to be placed on third parties to support critical business operations and capabilities, organizations are becoming more exposed to external risks that must be managed proactively throughout the third party engagement lifecycle. Organizations must be prepared for the impact to their business and operations, and maintain resilience.

How we can help: We help organizations understand their third party risks by evaluating the operational resiliency of workforce, technology, infrastructure, operations, and incident response capabilities that will be needed to withstand third party disruptions. In addition to improving visibility of the supply chain ecosystem we help organizations understand mission critical dependencies, assess potential impacts to the business in unexpected third party downtime, and provide support in the development of crisis and resiliency plans to maintain operations.

Regulatory Response & Compliance

As clients proactively consider how to enhance their agility and ability to respond to changes in the regulatory and business risk landscape, organizations are seeking cost-effective and up-to-date ways to gain confidence that they are compliant with regulations and operating within their desired risk appetite.

How we can help: We empower our clients to take control of their regulatory compliance management activities by using technology and automation to meet industry standards, regulatory requirements and provide key insights for operational excellence. We help organizations transform how they leverage technology, data and human risk competencies to compete more effectively and align with regulatory requirements in a world where alignment with organizational purpose and values has never been more critical.
