Cyber Self-Sufficiency Plan

Building out cyber security from scratch

A Cyber Self-Sufficiency Plan is a strategic framework designed to enable an organisation to independently manage and protect its cyber infrastructure through internal expertise, robust security policies, and advanced technologies.

Few understand your business as intimately as you do, which is why numerous organisations endeavour to establish an internal cyber security programme aimed at facilitating a comprehensive restructuring and internalisation of cyber defence.

At TSC, one of our primary objectives is to render cyber security accessible and pertinent to our clientele. Our Cyber Self Sufficiency programmes are characterised by clarity, decisiveness, and tailor-made solutions, offering the smoothest transition for those organisations seeking to bring cyber security responsibilities in-house.

Both packages are meticulously crafted with a pragmatic, common-sense approach to security. While clients are encouraged to select components from either package to align with their specific requirements, we believe that these comprehensive solutions will yield optimal results in the shortest possible time frame, all the while ensuring ongoing support and safety net provisions.

TSC boasts an extensive network of professionals possessing relevant security clearances, seasoned technical project managers, and skilled engineers endowed with a wealth of experience in crafting bespoke configurations.

Various elements of these packages can be implemented concurrently, with careful consideration given to dependencies. For instance, SOC monitoring cannot commence until a SIEM system is in place, yet policy formulation and process development can occur alongside strategy coaching initiatives.

USE CASE: Strengthening Cyber Security Resilience During a Major Demerger

Background

Amidst a significant demerger, a senior leadership team found themselves entrusted with safeguarding the newly formed demerged organisation. With the impending separation from the parent company looming and no clear cyber security strategy in place, the organisation faced stringent time constraints and the peril of overspending induced by panic and a lack of clarity regarding their actual security needs versus vendor recommendations.

Challenges

Lacking a coherent strategy aligned with both the future objectives and current operational requirements, the company risked deploying cyber security measures that were incongruent with their needs and squandering resources in non-essential areas. Moreover, given the nature of their operations, a permanent outsourcing of cyber security was not viable, necessitating the establishment of a UK-based security programme that afforded them ultimate control.

Cyber Self-Sufficiency Solution

TSC boasts an extensive network of professionals possessing relevant security clearances, seasoned technical project managers, and skilled engineers endowed with a wealth of experience in crafting bespoke configurations.

Recognising the critical need for expert guidance, the organisation engaged TSC to aid in the development and implementation of a robust cyber security programme, allowing them to focus on other facets of the demerger. The overarching goal was to cultivate self-sufficiency within the organisation, reserving external assistance solely for indispensable scenarios.

Implementation

TSC offered a premium package tailored to the organisation’s unique requirements. Commencing with an exhaustive maturity and risk assessment led by a seasoned security manager, TSC meticulously crafted a bespoke programme of action. This comprehensive approach encompassed everything from project management to custom engineering solutions and senior leadership training in cyber strategy.

Outcome

Through TSC’s intervention, the organisation achieved a holistic cyber defence strategy aligned with their specific needs and operational goals. By transferring responsibility to an internal team meticulously trained and empowered to steer the cyber security agenda, the organisation gained the assurance of autonomy and resilience. With TSC’s support, the company transitioned from a position of vulnerability to one of strength, poised to navigate the complexities of the demerger with confidence and efficacy.

The icing on the cake was the cyber strategy training, meaning the newly appointed security leader was able to not only receive the service with confidence but to lead the organisation in cyber defence with competence, confidence, and poise.
