Measure to improve cyber security
A key prerequisite for any organisation looking to maintain digital resilience and achieve protection of their most valuable assets, is to fully understand the current state of security maturity and Accelerate’s cyber security assessment services can help achieve this.
There is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to understanding an organisation, their security requirements and the maturity of cyber security measures. In addition, whilst technology plays an important part in achieving protection, unless it is combined with investment in your people (who are your ultimate defenders), plus an assessment of internal policies and processes, it is difficult to maintain a reliable state of security maturity that will protect your business for all risks.
At Accelerate, our cyber security assessment services are available in three different options to help address the most common requirements our clients request, to set you on the right path and identify the right maturity state and security controls appropriate for your specific organisation.

Your Investment in security
An assessment will help to inform and guide you to make the correct cyber security choices to mitigate against the biggest and most important risks to your business. Without this level of visibility significant efforts and money could be wasted.
By investing a small amount of time from your side, Accelerate’s Cyber Security Assessments will help you to measure and improve by concentrating on the key risk areas that are most likely to result in a breach.
As well as providing remediation advice and guidance, we can help you:
+ Develop your internal security discipline
+ Gain stake-holder and client trust & confidence
+ Provide budget justification to the business
…there is still more that organisations might do on a range of diverse topics such as audits, cyber insurance, supplier risks and breach reporting. Organisations may be confused about how they should be considering these topics and what best practice is. *

Sense of Security
Initiate our cyber security assessment services
We ask for a few hours of your time to allow us to understand your business, and to identify the services and assets that are critical to you and could affect the ability to operate in the event of compromise through a cyber-attack.
During the process we will discuss any existing security controls in place, and we take into consideration the internal capabilities and resources available to adopt new practices when we compile our report.
It’s important to remember that security maturity and cyber security are moving targets and an ongoing process of improvement as new technologies, threats, and best practices emerge. Accelerate will work closely with you to build a sustainable and effective cyber and Information security strategy within your organisation.Book a Cyber Security Assessment
