Cyber Risk Services

Cybercrime has evolved. Is your organisation prepared?

As businesses and organisations continue their digital transformation journey's and processes become more automated, cyber security continues to grow as one of the most significant threats faced throughout all business sectors. The impact of a cyber-security breach can be existential and at best, disruptive. As many as 60% of small to medium enterprises (SMEs have up to 250 employees and £50m/annum revenue), go out of business within 6 months of suffering a cyber-attack. This is a frightening statistic but we should remember that the other 40% continue to trade, many of them thriving and enjoying success over many years. Although the number of larger organisations that fail after being the victim of a significant cyber-attack is much smaller, there are parallels.

The main difference between those hit the hardest and those that prove to be more resilient is their levels of preparedness. The better prepared an organisation is, the more successful it will be at withstanding the consequences of an attack.

Our cyber risk evaluation process uses a blended methodology, aligned with the ISO 31000 risk management standard and supplemented by a range of other international frameworks, to calculate "preparedness" and therefore risk exposure.

Our consulting team work with you to develop a bespoke "road map" to build better protection and improve cyber security awareness.

How we help

Whatever your sector or industry we can help you navigate the often complex cyber security environment, and create a comprehensive strategy to protect against your specific risks and develop a holistic security master plan designed to evolve over time.

What we do?

Our Approach

As our business world becomes increasingly more reliant on the complex interconnectivity of business systems, hardware, applications and other technology, the related security risks increase. CornerStone's pioneering, holistic approach recognises the need to consider security more widely and this is reflected within our Cyber Security service areas. We are able to utilise the knowledge gained through our planning, assessment and audit services to inform technical cyber solutions and how these need to be applied throughout an organisation. Context is always critical when planning the measures that are necessary and our Cyber Services offer the most comprehensive insight into what you need to do today and into the future.

Cyber Security Preparedness Assessment

This comprehensive evaluation will offer the insight and understanding necessary to make informed decisions and prioritise activity

Cyber Risk Assessment

The Cyber risk assessment will evaluate a broad range of factors and provide quantitative data to enable stakeholders to understand vulnerabilities and potential business impact

Compliance Services

CornerStone is able to assess compliance with a broad range of standards including the NCSC Cyber Assessment Framework, ISO 27001, the PCI DSS Standard and the NIST Cyber Security Framework to name just a few. We also incorporate GDPR and other data privacy laws. Our focus is on developing better security outcomes, emphasising context as well as compliance.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing provides real-world insight into the security of the systems being tested, and highlight vulnerabilities that may exist. With the knowledge gleaned, we can provide remediation plans to address weaknesses and reduce the risk of a successful cyber-attack. Our services include "Positive" and "Negative" tests and align with initiatives such as CREST and the Tiger scheme.

Application Security Assessment

To ensure that new applications and business systems are coded securely and remain secure throughout their life-cycle, Application Security testing provides assurance and highlights vulnerabilities that might have occurred due to emerging threats

Data Security Assessment
