Consulting services

There is nothing academic about true cyber threat intelligence. Instead, it is the product of careful analysis of curated evidence by an established intelligence practitioner.

Anything less is merely information.

Security Alliance provides a range of consulting services that fortify cyber security programmes against the specific threat unique to your organisation.

We deliver these programmes, leveraging our internal cyber intelligence team, made of diverse specialists with conventional and cyber intelligence backgrounds. We have a firm grounding in intelligence fusion and intelligence exploitation, with a broad understanding of the geo-political security context in which your organisation operates.

Cyber Threat & Resiliency Assessments

The Cyber Threat & Resiliency Assessment (CTRA) service is designed to analyse the specific threats facing an organisation, and to help the organisation better understand the cyber threats that they face, their susceptibility to attack, and to provide pragmatic mitigation strategies.

The assessment is aligned with leading industry frameworks, including CREST STAR, CBEST, GBEST, TBEST, TIBER and iCAST.

Available as a once-off or continuous programme, the service is designed to support tactical, operational and strategic decision making with the objective of continually improving cyber resililience.

Intelligence Capability Building

Cyber Threat Intelligence has in recent years become a critical component of cyber security strategy, yet is still an immature discipline.

As a specialist Cyber Threat Intelligence service provider, with a bank of experts, mature sources, methodologies, processes and toolkits, we are ideally positioned to help organisations improve cyber resilience through building internal capability.

This service measures current capabilitlities in an organisation's intelligence sourcing, collection, processing, analysis, dissemination capabilities, and provides a clear roadmap for people, process and technology advancement.

 

M&A Threat Assessment

Just as you might vet employees before welcoming them into the organisation, it is important to investigate and assess the unknown elements of any potential investments, acquisitions or mergers before exposing your environment to them.

New acquisitions carry with them new threat actors that alter your threat landscape. In the case of merging IT infrastructure, your acquisition's threats become your own.

An Acquisition Threat Assessment (conducted either pre or post completion) will better advise the board, IT, information security and risk functions of the new risks the organisation is exposed to.

 

Simulated Attack & Red-Teaming

With cybercrime at an all-time high, organisations need to become more focused and targeted in the way they protect their critical systems.

Simulated Attack Services deliver controlled, bespoke, intelligence-led penetration tests that reflect specific risks as defined by cyber threat intelligence.

By mimicking an attacker's tactics, techniques and procedures, a bespoke test is then created to assess how successful an attack on the organisation might be, and to measure the effectiveness and maturity of its detection and response capabilities.
