Sectoral services


Organisations are increasingly sensitive to the need to deploy digital business solutions that can be operated securely. They need assurance that all reasonable steps have been taken to ensure that vital business processes and information have been protected against threats from inside and outside the organisation.

In the digital business marketplace, service availability and reliability are crucial. At the same time, protecting sensitive commercial and public information and transactions from unwanted attention is vital. Add to this the need for prudent business controls, electronic transaction records and compliance with legislation and the importance of security issues is self-evident.

At SACfIS, we provide a comprehensive range of security consulting services to organisations that are developing and upgrading their digital business infrastructure in major sectors. These services are designed to help clients ready their digital business activities for secure operation.

We focus upon assisting your organisation in the identification of their strategic needs, performing high-level risk and impact assessments so as to support strategic planning as well as policy and business case development. Our Business Information Security methodology provides an entire enterprise-wide approach to planning, developing and implementing a security programme that meets your entire range of business requirements.

We perform threat, vulnerability and impact assessments; these can be used to underpin the targeting and planning of security improvement initiatives and the adoption of best practice guidance as provided by the internationally recognised standard ISO17799, to which we can help you align your organisation.

In addition, we can also provide you with a comprehensive profile of the threats facing your company. This will enable you to ensure that you are employing risk mitigation strategies where the chance of exploitation is most likely to occur.

Our policy development services address one or more organisational, process, personnel and systems security needs, dependent upon client specific needs.

This enterprise-wide approach to security architecture embraces the whole process of business requirements mapping, creating a strategic conceptual security architecture in response to these requirements, and drilling down into a wide range of systems design, configuration and review services, addressing all areas of people, processes and technology.

All sectors are vulnerable for various attack vetors.. Illustrations below:
