What is Cybersecurity Advisory?

Stryve’s cybersecurity advisory service is our outsourced security service, designed to offer your company expert advice without the high price tag. Given the talent squeeze in countries such as the UK and Ireland, it is increasingly difficult to source cybersecurity talent. This represents a significant risk for small and medium businesses when viewed in the context of the increased risk from cyber threats. By outsourcing this core function you can enjoy access to the best security talent and latest cyber technology solutions at an affordable price point.

The goal of most chief information security officers is to maintain and protect information assets. Our offering enables you to achieve the same outcome without the need for a dedicated hire.

In short, our cybersecurity advisory solution offers organisations access to a pool of experts and experienced cybersecurity practitioners who can offer advice and support to your business.

What is our Cybersecurity Advisory offering?

You gain access to an experienced security officer. Depending on your needs, our experts can assist you regularly or on a one time basis. Our cybersecurity advisory offering lifts the bonnet of your entire business and is designed to support and guide the business in improving overall IT security and compliance.

In short, our cybersecurity advisory service produces a cybersecurity management strategy from the C-suite down, creating a comprehensive information security programme that leverages forward-looking technology, people and practices.

How does it work?

After an initial free consultation, we can put forward a recommended plan and discuss the level of engagement you would like to maintain with our experts. Our service will usually entail a combination of onsite and office work with the consultation consisting of an initial audit, followed by the production of a plan and finally implementation (consisting of ongoing monitoring).

Our cybersecurity advisory service is dynamic; we provide a range of services, from helping businesses to remediate issues in the wake of a cyberattack to implementing a plan that can proactively help your business,

“Your business will draw on our expertise and knowledge and we go on a journey together to ensure that all of the objectives are met within the agreed time frame.”

Paul Delahunty, Stryve Secure
