The National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) has a remit to make the UK the safest place to live and work online. A major part of this is with the Cyber Essentials (CE) Scheme, which is a government backed scheme that will help you protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.
Is Cyber Essentials enough?
Cyber Essentials helps organisations protect themselves from a range of common threats online and Nine23 have a number of services to help you gain both CE and CE+ certifications and then manage this level of cyber security for you however, it can only protect organisations from 80% of cyber-attacks.
If you are an organisation that needs confidence that critical cyber security risks, vulnerabilities and threats are being identified and dealt with on a daily basis, you will need to go further than Cyber Essentials.
What is Cyber Security as a Service (CSaaS)?
Cyber Security as a Service (CSaaS) is an outsourced model of cyber security risk management that gives you full peace of mind that your organisation is secure against common cyber threats, while saving you time and money. This can be run entirely on your behalf as a fully managed service, or in a hybrid model alongside your existing teams, giving you additional capacity, out of hours cover and highly specialised resources without the pressures of recruiting and retaining these individuals.
CSaaS covers a greater range of critical cyber security threats than CE, it provides the tools, advice and education to enable you to better manage your cyber security, whatever your scale and sector.
Our Cyber Security solution starts with an advisory engagement to understand your current position, followed by either a report on any necessary actions to fix your environment, and a fully managed Cyber Security as a Service (CSaaS) where we maintain your cyber security for you as a continued service. This spans cyber strategy, risk and threat analysis, vulnerability management, incident response, security architecture / engineering and operational security.
At the heart of all of these services is a drive towards automation, that provides the speed of response and scale of coverage to allow teams to keep up with demand. In an always-on world and ever-increasing digital portfolios, we are past the event horizon where purely manual approaches are suitable.
Adam Gwinnett, CTO of Nine23 commented:
“The time between compromise and breach / disclosure is shortening, requiring responses to go beyond human intervention times to de-risk organisations”
