Information Security Consultancy

Expert advice from our experienced team

Information Security is hard….and other mistruths

Information security isn’t hard. Balancing your business objectives with protecting your organisation from undue risk, that can be tricky.

It’s like anything else though, if you know what you’re doing it can be straightforward and this is where often it pays to bring in the experts. At 4ARMED we have a fantastic, rounded breadth and depth of knowledge and experience which means we are perfectly placed to help your business with its information security needs.

How can we help?

How do you need help?! Such is the nature of security consultancy we are constantly surprised with some of the projects we get involved in and we really love getting our teeth into a meaty infosec problem.

To give you an idea, we regularly consult on PCI DSS, web application secure architecture design, start-up cyber security strategy and we also act as a “Virtual CSO” for a number of organisations.

This, among many other functions, is where 4ARMED can add tremendous value to your organisation. Our no-nonsense, business-focused approach hits the spot every time.

Benefits

Cost Effective

Spend your information security budget wisely. We focus on adding value.

Great Communication

No nonsense, easy to talk to. When you're trying to solve a tricky infosec problem you'll appreciate how easy we are to talk to.

What To Expect

As with our PCI DSS consultancy a typical engagement will start with a requirements gathering exercise. We need to understand what your goals are and the current challenges you are faced with.

Once we understand the requirements we can pull together suggested work packages and provide our costs and effort for delivering these.

Call-off agreement

Where the precise effort required may be unclear, for example, where your project comprises multiple dependent phases of work, we will usually recommend a consultancy call-off agreement.

This is a very simple, non-binding approach to ensuring smooth and responsive engagements with bursty work requirements. You gain authorisation for an agreed number of consultancy days up front, typically in the form of a Purchase Order. 4ARMED then delivers agreed work packages against the call-off balance, invoicing monthly in arrears for accrued days.

There is no commitment to use all the days authorised and it doesn’t change our no-nonsense, open approach to engagements where you are engaged at all times in the work we are delivering.
