BT announced the launch of Cyber Roadmap Consulting, a new consultancy programme designed to give large organisations a better understanding of their own cyber security risks and implement measures to mitigate these.
The new service uses consultants from BT’s global security consulting team to work with customers to identify risks in existing systems and processes. The BT consultants are in an ideal position to create a bespoke cyber-threat mitigation and defence plan for each customer, providing detailed step-by-step guidance to help them improve security throughout their organisation, covering people, processes and technology.
Guus van Es, BT’s general manager for Security Consulting, said: “Our approach not only identifies gaps, it takes a broader view on how to help customers stay ahead of the threat curve. Based on our wealth of experience in protecting BT and our customers, it is an integral part of our security portfolio. This includes bespoke design, implementation and operate capabilities as well as delivery of managed services and help with transformation projects. Combined with our vendor-agnostic approach, this ensures we can deliver a set of realistic and cost efficient measures on a global scale while at the same time helping our customers make the most of their existing technology investments and stay closely aligned to their business goals.”
Already delivered to one of the world’s largest financial organisations, BT’s Cyber Roadmap Consulting is fully compliant with ISO 27002, the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework and the U.S. Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) requirements for the financial services industry.
BT’s global security consulting team consists of 500 highly skilled security specialists with expertise in every cyber area. Key accreditations available in the team include Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Systems Auditor/ Certified Information Security Manager (CISA/CISM), ISO 27001, ISO 27005 and ITIL.
The service is available worldwide.
