Traditionally, cybersecurity has been delegated solely to the CISO and their team. Nevertheless, organisations are increasingly recognising the far-reaching consequences of cyberattacks on financial profitability, reputation, legal obligations, and public trust.
As a result, it has become imperative for executives, board members, and management to actively engage in the cybersecurity posture of the company. By actively participating and taking ownership, they contribute to a comprehensive and resilient cybersecurity framework that protects the organisation from potential threats and ensures its long-term success.
At Ensign, we provide Advisory and Cyber Strategy consultancy services that empower your entire organisation, from leadership to security operations, with a proactive "shift left" mindset to combat emerging threats. Leveraging our extensive experience gained from numerous client engagements, we possess a profound understanding of sector-specific challenges and requirements. Our knowledgeable consultants will deliver a tailored strategy, roadmap, and implementation plan to enhance your cybersecurity posture, ensuring a fit-for-purpose approach that strengthens your organisation's resilience.
Each organisation possesses unique business activities and characteristics, marked by distinct risk appetites, priorities, and cybersecurity maturity levels. Senior leaders need to be informed of threats unique to their organisation, identify and prioritise relevant risks, and understand the adequacy of their cybersecurity posture. The identified gaps should then be prioritised against mitigation dependencies and risk exposure to establish a fit-for-purpose and commensurate cyber defence posture. Ensign's Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment adopts a threat-informed defence approach to contextualise the threat environment an organisation faces, identifying relevant threat groups and their associated adversarial techniques. This context establishes the target maturity level, which is then compared against current implemented mitigations to determine the gap based on the Ensign Cybersecurity Maturity Framework, referencing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and other industry best practices. Recommendations are laid out in a strategic roadmap for implementation, including indicative investment requirements to inform decision-makers about the priority of investments for their cyber defence, aligned with their business interests and objectives.
