Cyber and Data Security

The speed of change across the digital landscape is spectacular. Ever-greater automation, capacity and interconnectivity continue to be the driving forces behind many of the world’s most successful economies.  It has become the enabler for life-enhancing innovation and opportunity.  It also brings significant levels of risk.

For the very same reasons that the internet and network connectivity have been a force for good, criminals, terrorists and those of nefarious intent have harnessed that same power to perpetrate a whole new category of criminal behaviour and to facilitate traditional crimes in new and even more effective ways.

Regulators found it difficult to keep up with the pace of change at first, but powerful new laws such as the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), introduced by the European Union (EU) have brought in tough new rules aimed at enhancing an individuals' control and rights over their personal data and simplifying the regulatory environment for international business.

Our viewpoint

Evaluating where risk resides

Cyber attacks and data breaches are increasing in quantity and severity. Identifying areas throughout an organisation, where risk can exist, is fundamental to being able to understand the potential impact it might have before taking the necessary actions to reduce the effects or terminate the risk altogether. We understand that delivering good Cyber and Data security can only be achieved through a holistic approach that considers a broad range of risk domains. We go further and consider a much broader cross-section of an organisations operation ensuring that CornerStone's involvement always delivers maximum value.


Any organisation relies upon its reputation to support it's business objectives. Damage to reputation can have far reaching and very costly consequences


The building, its systems and operations that form part of the facility are enablers that quickly interrupt business activity when they are compromised or stop functioning correctly

Core Business Processes

Right at the heart of any organisation are core processes that form the basis of its business activity. The interruption of these processes will damage performance and distract focus whilst they are remediated


Information is an asset that organisations leverage in different ways. Whether it's intellectual property, commercially sensitive or personal data, its security is paramount

Supply Chain

Businesses can be critically dependent on their supply chain. Any interruption or disruption can quickly impact business performance and have other long lasting affects

Human Resources

Most organisations consider its people a key asset, but people can also be an accidental or intentional threat to business operations, able to undermine activity or damage performance

Our Approach

CornerStone’s Cyber, Risk and Data Security services form part of our holistic approach to security risk management. We recognise that it would be easy to solely focus attention on the threat that Cyber poses, however, as part of a good Cyber security defence it takes more than just technical cyber measures to mitigate the risk.

Our unique Unified Security Risk Management model enables us to consider a more rounded view of the relevant security risks and form much more comprehensive risk management strategies. Our services are designed to consider and mitigate the interrelated threats faced across all areas of business operation and not just the traditional silos that security used to focus upon.

We can help you develop, implement or complement the existing data protection processes and controls needed to meet compliance requirements—and keep your company’s proprietary and sensitive information safe.
