Specialist Advisory & Intervention group manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or any information that is classified. One of our key objectives of information security management is to assess the adequacy of the information security framework, threat identification and risk management processes, with the focus on activities performed at the facility level. Also to determine whether the roles and responsibilities of all parties in inter/intra departmental are clearly defined, performed by the appropriate entities as defined by the security policies. We also determine whether physical access to classified information and sensitive assets is limited to authorised individuals who have been given the authorised access at their appropriate level and who have an express need for access. Our audit team works together with our clients to get GDPR and ISO 27001 compatible.
Security misconfiguration ranks 5th as an internal risk that organisations face today. The use of multiple technologies from different platforms does not necessarily allow the systems to integrate effectively. Potential risks observed in our experience range from hostile intruders to untrained users. Network security refers to all hardware and software functions, characteristics, features, operational procedures, accountability measures, access controls, administrative and management policy required to provide an acceptable level of protection for hardware, software, and information in a network. Specialist Advisory and Intervention Group’s technical advisors create risk mitigation plans based on a thorough analysis of network topology, check for high vulnerability areas and minimise the risk of sensitive data getting leaked.
Specialist Advisory and Intervention Group designs and incorporates Data Loss Prevention Solutions to detect potential data breaches or attempts to leak or move sensitive data outside any organisation’s secure storage systems and beyond its control. We support our clients to detect and block access to or transmission of sensitive or proprietary data and information keeping in mind today’s cyber attacks, cloud and mobile centered realities.

The overall ISMS scope is broken down into greater detail, typically by generating an ISMS audit work plan/checklist. Audit plans identify and put broad boundaries around the remaining phases of the audit
The first part of the fieldwork typically involves a documentation review. Findings from the documentation review often indicate the need for specific audit tests to determine how closely the ISMS as currently implemented follows the documentation, as well as testing the general level of compliance and testing appropriateness of the documentation .
Technical compliance tests may be necessary to verify that IT systems are configured in accordance with the organisation’s information security policies, standards and guidelines.
The accumulated audit evidence is sorted out and filed, reviewed and examined in relation to the risks and control objectives.
The draft audit report is usually presented to and discussed with management.
In addition to indexing and cross-referencing and literally shutting the audit files, closure involves preparing notes for future audits and following up to check that the agreed actions are in fact completed on time.
Organisations often invest in technology especially in the field of security in phases, the end result is a mix of multiple brands/types of components as well as technologies.The need to integrate these systems into a centralised command and control facility is hampered due to the lack of compatibility between these equipment to function on a common platform.Our experts from the field of both Hardware and Software division, create customised seamless integration solutions to materialise this need without having to alter the existing system or change in product.
