National Computing Centre launches security audit service following Government campaign
In the wake of the Government's recent warning that cyber crime costs UK plc an estimated £21 billion every year, the UK's National Computing Centre (NCC) has launched a new security audit service priced at just £3,995 plus VAT.
The National Computing Centre Information Security Audit is carried out by BSI-certified security auditors and takes three days to complete. It provides a summary of an organisation’s true security posture and clearly identifies the immediate high-risk areas to the organisation.
The service launch comes shortly after the Government and GCHQ committed to help create a more security-conscious culture in UK companies, and MI5 warned that UK organisations are facing "astonishing" levels of cyber attacks. This wake-up call must be heeded, says National Computing Centre director Keith Vooght.
He explained: “The security risk to an organisation can be created or increased through three key areas – the people, the processes and the technology. It is critical for decision makers of the organisation to audit against all three areas to ensure they are truly robust and secure against a breach in a real sense. The National Computing Centre Information Security Audit is a cost-effective method of understanding your security posture as it relates to these three areas.”
The Audit includes a manual external penetration test and an ISO 27001 Gap Analysis, and is undertaken by BSI-certified lead auditors. The result – a report giving organisations an effective and realistic summary of their true security posture with clear identification of the immediate high-risk areas to the organisation. Mitigation measures are provided against identified risks.
