Governments, businesses and individuals are all threatened by cyber security risks. These risks are acknowledged to be high; and to be growing faster than the numbers, skills, and knowledge of those who can address them.

That’s why governments and large corporate organisations in more than 50 countries have used PGI’s specialist cyber services to help them fill critical capability gaps and manage cyber security risks.

Government cyber security capacity building

Assisting governments to establish national operating models and international relationships

Countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa have used us as a partner to build their national cyber security capability. We do this through designing and implementing national operating models, including interoperability between public and private service providers. This often includes the building of units, such as national cyber security centres (NCSCs), security operations centres (SOCs) and national cyber security incident response teams (CSIRTs) and developing and delivering training and exercise programmes for their staff, as well as awareness for the wider population.

We understand that, for many nations, this task is too important to be left indefinitely to an external provider, so we design effective capability transfer into all long-term programmes, through a combination of:

  • ‘Build and transfer’ or ‘build, operate and transfer’ approaches
  • Design and delivery of training environments and operational
  • Training of trainers (ToT)
  • Developing national curriculums and qualifying accreditations

Corporate cyber security capacity building

Building your capability to understand and overcome cyber threats

Cyber security should be proportionate to the overall risks an organisation faces and vitally, it isn’t just about a reactive technical fix. Implemented properly, it can be a driver of change and operational resilience, regardless of size and sector. Therefore, developing of a cyber security strategy that fits your organisation is about finding the right balance between organisational culture, technical controls, risk appetite and a specific threat profile.

Our team of cyber and information security experts will work with you to develop a cyber security programme that enables business operations, not restricts them. Programmes are designed to cover governance, processes, technologies, metrics, culture change, crisis management and operational resilience.

Importantly, we also improve organisational leadership’s understanding of the role of cyber security by providing actionable guidance that’s designed to future-proof your operations. This approach promotes trust and a top-level buy-in that enables the implementation of the cultural and technical measures required to safeguard valuable assets.
