Cyber Security Review

How Resilient Are You?

Get in Touch

We’ve all seen how a cyber security breach can cripple IT systems, with more stories appearing in the news every day. It is crucial that everyone within your organisation is aware that cyber security is taken seriously, how well you are protected and what measures are currently in place. It is a myth that organisations are targeted because of what they do, the information they hold, or their public profile. In reality, organisations get hacked because they are vulnerable.


Daisy’s Cyber Security Review is designed to assess the key aspects of your IT security related infrastructure, processes, and technical management capabilities to balance these against the cyber threats that are most relevant to your business. Most importantly, a Daisy Cyber Security Review reports these in a format and language that is designed for senior (non-IT) managers and organisational executives.

The unique reporting methodology allows you to target future improvements and measure your progress towards this goal. It allows you to see when you have an appropriate balance between risk and protection – a pragmatic approach that gives clear justification to any investments within this area.

To truly understand your risks and what a serious breach would entail, it is worth considering the following:

  • What systems may be compromised?
  • What data could be lost?
  • How would the media report such an event?

Once you have an understanding of your risks, a Cyber Security Review can help you prioritise any changes and scope what systems you need to have, to ensure robust security.

The Four Components of a Daisy Cyber Security Review

1. Cyber Security Priorities
This covers the areas of IT security protection that directly impact on your risks of a serious cyber security breach. Whilst our expert analysis is in-depth, we report these as either red/amber/green, accompanied with specific recommendations and targeted improvements, where necessary.
2. Cyber Security Matrix
Daisy’s unique scoring tool is designed to give you an overview of your current level of protection and the risks your organisation faces. As your protection should be proportionate with your risks, we don’t just compare you with some hypothetical ideal. Rather, we look at the balance of your risks, in context of the nature of your operations, and your current capabilities and weaknesses.
3. Organisational Risk Quadrant (Organisational Risk)
This is an executive-level reporting system that gives management a clear picture of your current security position and facilitates resource decisions.
4. Ransomware Preparedness Quadrant (Ransomware Preparedness)
This is also a useful executive level reporting system that evaluates your organisation’s ability to quickly and effectively respond to a ransomware attack.

Have you thought about…?

Penetration Testing
A ‘point in time assessment’, providing a snapshot of your security posture at the point of testing. As new security vulnerabilities are constantly being discovered and published, both penetration testing and vulnerability assessments should be conducted regularly. Most security specialists will recommend at least annual penetration tests.

ISO 27001
An internationally recognised security framework which can be adopted by most organisations to help identify their vulnerabilities. Its flexibility means businesses can choose the most appropriate controls, commensurate with their level of risk, and provide assurances as to the protection and availability of their information.
