Advisory Services

We are the architects of your cyber resilience.

 

As advisors, we aim to navigate your business on the journey towards cyber resilience. We begin by understanding your core business and goals, in the context of your digital risk landscape, alongside your cyber resilience maturity from a technological, organisational, cultural and ecosystem perspective.

Armed with our analysis and insights, we partner with you to design a bespoke blueprint for your cyber resilience journey. We then follow through with its orchestration and implementation, integrating the market on your behalf, bringing on companies from our portfolio or other external partners where relevant, acting as a single point of contact along the entire journey.

Our core areas of expertise

Cybersecurity in M&A

When looking to make an acquisition, assessing the target's cyber hygiene is as important as determining its financial health and market potential. Yet infosec leaders are often brought in late in the M&A lifecycle.

To truly harness the power of M&A in support of business expansion, it is imperative to embed cybersecurity considerations right from the initial due diligence phase and carry them seamlessly through to integration.

Complete Crisis Preparedness

People never come to work expecting a cyberattack, so it feels surprising and random when it happens. But cyberattacks are “predictable surprises” that exploit weaknesses in organisational strategies and capabilities. Prepared enterprises do not dismiss cybersecurity as a random event but focus on building strategic capabilities to anticipate and respond to cyberattacks. How can companies prepare and prevent a crisis from becoming a catastrophe?

Risk-Led Cyber Resilience Strategy

Threats are limitless, and resources are not. Therefore, leading enterprises have turned to a different approach: focusing their resiliency efforts around their highest value at risk. The most advanced enterprises use qualitative and quantitative risk management methods to identify the greatest cyber risks to their most important assets and processes. Armed with this insight, they prioritise their investments accordingly. What’s the ideal roadmap to a risk-led resilience strategy?

Securing Operational Technology

Planes, power plants and even pipelines now all rely on digital technology as the worlds of IT and OT converge. Attacks and disruptions on these companies and organisations can lead to catastrophe and have exponentially increased in the last few years. Securing operational technology from cyber threats is now an inescapable necessity. As adversaries ramp up their attacks and methods, the industry needs to move beyond compliance to cyber resilience.

Securing the Cloud

Very few companies still have their operations supported solely by private data centres. Today, most enterprises use at least one public cloud provider, with many in a multi-cloud setup. That shift to the cloud comes with strategic opportunities and changing demands on security and resilience, skills and talent. Enterprises need to design resilience in everything from secure architecture to dedicated technologies to secure the journey to the cloud.

Securing the Supply Chain

Even if an enterprise has done all it can to protect itself from cyber attacks, it is still vulnerable to attacks and disruptions through the supply chain. As a result, third-party risks have become one of the most pressing cybersecurity challenges. Although it seems a daunting task, with potentially thousands of 3rd and 4th parties in the supply chain, enterprises can take steps to build cyber resilience and break the domino effect if an attack occurs.

Our goal is lasting impact

ISTARI's flexibility to change makes it stand out - we frequently fine-tuned the approach. The team is very agile, and my organisation needed that. It is quite refreshing.

Global Technology Lead, Fortune 500 Company

I didn't want more tools. I wanted a trusted advisor to tell me where we were exposed and to tell me what we needed to do. ISTARI came in and looked at everything. They carried out a mock adversarial attack on us, and we received an overall score. This provided tangible evidence that we needed to change.

CTO, Global Financial Firm

Let's build a digitally resilient business world together.
