Security Consulting

Strategic Management

Strategic Information Security Management seeks to keep business risks associated with information systems under control within your organisation, by ensuring strategic alignment between information security, IT, and the Business itself.

The information security function therefore becomes a positive contributor to information technology's operational efficiencies.

Due Diligence

We have vast knowledge and experience of IT control environments, and can provide the "IT control overview" you need at this critical phase of your organisations growth.

Policy, Procedure, Standards

An information security policy architecture can only be successful if the information security team (or policy architecture team) understands what the organisation's mission, goals, and objectives are. The team needs to build or improve your existing policies and procedures to match the strategic direction of the organisation. BDO Consulting assists organisations to develop or refine:

  • the organisation's security policy architecture;
  • effective policies to define goals;
  • procedures that embed security, and
  • technical configuration standards to provide consistent and sustainable infrastructure platforms, and the management thereof.

Security Programme Management

We assist organisations to take into account, all information security requirements at the various phases of their Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Security solutions that are designed, and 'built into' IT systems and processes have a much higher success rate, than those that are 'bolted on', once the project has been completed.

Vulnerability & Resilience

Vulnerability & Resilience assessments identify and evaluate the threats and vulnerabilities that increase the likelihood of significant impacting incidents occurring, affecting information assets, and adversely impacting the confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability thereof.

Infrastructure Security

Business critical information is stored within databases, resides on operating systems, and is transmitted via routers and switches across the network. This infrastructure, on which your applications reside, needs to be effectively secured, managed, and continually monitored to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your valuable information.
