Information Security Approach

ARTEFACT REVIEW,
DESIGN AND
DEVELOPMENT

The current Information Security governance landscape across many organisations comprises numerous policies, standards and other related documents (collectively referred to as ‘governance artefacts’). These artefacts are developed and accumulated over a number of years, and consequently, there may be duplication, overlap and possible contradiction amongst these governance artefacts.

The Mobius approach to Information Security artefact review, design and development enables organisations to align their governance artefacts with the organisation’s Information Security governance framework and identify any gaps based on this, review and update the content of the Information Security governance artefacts to ensure relevancy and alignment with the latest regulations and standards and rationalise and consolidate the Information Security governance artefacts.

GAP
ASSESSMENT
ROADMAP

The Mobius Consulting Information Security gap assessment enables an organisation to evaluate the current state of their Information Security against a number of internationally recognised frameworks. The result is a holistic understanding of your current maturity in relation to Information Security, as well as a view of key Information Security gaps within the environment, from a Governance, People, Process and Technology perspective.

By comparing your actual Information Security practices against industry-leading best practices, companies can determine key Information Security gaps, and furthermore identify where vulnerabilities and risks are imminent. But, more than that, an Information Security gap assessment provides a clear path forward for improving your Information Security posture.

OUTSOURCED
SERVICES

The dilemma that most organisations are faced with is a shortage of Information Security and Information Privacy resources, and companies often lack the skills to ensure the success of their Information Security and Information Privacy Programmes.

Mobius Consulting has released a new range of Outsourced Services within our Information Security, Information Privacy, and Cyber Security service lines.

We will assist with the management and execution of an Information Security Programme that supports an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and incorporates governance, roles and responsibilities, technological solutions and continuous monitoring across Information Security.

SKILLS
ASSESSMENTS

The Mobius Information Security Skills Assessment is designed to accurately evaluate your organisation’s Information Security workforce. The assessment captures the level of proficiency for each required skill, so organisations understand current capabilities and can plan for future skill capabilities, in alignment with organisational goals and digitisation.
