Step One

You give us read-only access to your infrastructure (don’t worry, our experts are government Security Cleared and we will put an NDA in place) so that we can check how things are configured.

Step Three

We will take you through the review process and framework questions at a pace that suits you and your team.

Step Four

We will run a workshop with you to discuss our report and present risks, areas of improvement and any other findings we have. We can also agree where you want to make changes.
