Introduction

Cyber security is about understanding and mitigating risk. The cyber threat has evolved rapidly over the years and new legislation has increased the need for organisations to protect against attacks or breaches. Softcat have spent over twenty years working in cyber security, and we can help you develop and deliver a security strategy that meets your needs in a rapidly evolving landscape. 

 

How we help you reduce your cyber risk 

Our approach helps you to understand the building blocks of an effective security strategy, by using our gap analysis below you can understand what defences you already have in place, and the gaps you need to fill.

Access

Securing data access through managing identity and behaviour

Edge

Protecting the evolving boundaries of your organisation across devices, datacentres, and cloud

Operations

Ensuring governance through monitoring and policy management

Baseline Controls 

We think this is the minimum amount of security across access, edge and operations that your organisation needs to keep your data safe. We recommend considering implementing the following across each level of control.

Recommended Controls 

Building on the baseline, these controls are recommended for all organisations to provide proactive protection against more advanced attacks. This layer integrates public cloud. 

Advanced Controls

These controls provide optimal protection for organisations who pride themselves on security maturity, prioritising security excellence by finessing visibility and response rate.
