This 3-tiered approach has been developed by our team of cyber security experts, with foundations in guidance from GCHQ’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). Like all Savanti services, it’s based on many years’ knowledge and experience gained from protecting high-profile organisations with complex architectures. And it’s built to align with your specific risks, ensuring you shape and accelerate your security maturity. It’s also a model that helps you focus on the real risk areas, so it’s simple to implement, and ensures you get the most out of your investment.

Stage 1: Foundation – Here’s where you can harness Savanti’s senior-level expertise and collaborative approach. This first stage examines your company’s leadership, structure, and operating model. It includes detailed analysis of policies, standards, charters, and related key supporting documentation.

Stage 2: NCSC 10 steps – You get an in-depth assessment of your company’s cyber security maturity, based on GCHQ’s NCSC guidance. This is a framework that covers how to defend your networks, systems and information. Savanti adapts this to suit your business requirements, so you gain a bespoke version.

Stage 3: Assurance – You may have cyber security controls in place. The challenge is then more around avoiding a false sense of cyber security. This final stage solves this challenge, dealing with the assurance processes that need to be in place.
