Businesses must be able to assess and identify the current and emerging risks that will affect their strategies and impact their performance.

Cyber threats

Technology continues to fuel opportunity, and organisations must now implement effective information security arrangements to secure their data – their most valuable and vulnerable asset. Every organisation must now consider the impact of cyber-attacks security breaches and unauthorised access, frauds, espionage and sabotage and vandalism.

Regulators are increasingly more rigorous in their application of accountability, while economic pressures demand more from less. Resources and skills gaps often compromise plans.

What our clients say

Xcina initially worked with us to produce a detailed gap analysis on our readiness for GDPR. The consultant adopted a collaborative approach so that we could identify the key risk areas for our business and focus on mitigation plans. Xcina’s ongoing support has ensured that our employees feel confident when dealing with data protection matters, with best practice and expertise from consultants who have taken the time to get to know our business and our industry.

Our approach

 

Agility

Each client is a unique combination of people processes, resources, experience and skills. And so while many share similar issues, the same approach is not appropriate for all organisations. We adapt every project to the individual needs of each organisation we work with, based on identifying where they need our support and where it’s most valuable. Each project requires a tailored scope and programme, and we are experienced in providing pivotal support across all business lines, in multiple sectors and from large corporates to SMEs and Not-For-Profits.

Great people

Our consultants are perfectly matched to the engagement. Each has deep knowledge and expertise earned in senior and executive management positions. All clients are serviced by senior experts throughout the life of the project from initial engagement to execution – we never “bait and switch”, neither do we learn on your job. Where required and it brings value to the project, we partner with select specialist consultancies to ensure specific skills requirements are met.

Partnering with clients

Many clients tell us they feel we are part of their team. We resource each project to complement your existing experience, strengths and skills – filling the gaps rather than taking over. Every project is driven by your strategic objectives and our solutions are pragmatic and cost effective. We share the IP generated during a project with our clients and provide guidance and training to help their internal teams continue to implement the solutions and develop them further.

Best practice

Clients come to Xcina Consulting for our expertise. We adopt leading compliance and risk management practices recognised by industry bodies and regulators and we use established frameworks tailored to your requirements to ensure our solutions are fit for purpose and dependable. We are vendor agnostic, always identifying best in breed solutions and our specialists are at the forefront of industry trends and developments. They have first-hand experience of implementing the appropriate methodologies, frameworks and standards.

Information Security

A complex and ever-evolving cyber threat landscape

Information and cyber security need to be top-of-mind in all organisations. Data is the lifeblood of your business and the volume generated, stored and processed is increasing whilst the technology used to manage data is becoming more complex and diverse. It has also become the target of more crime, espionage and vandalism. Business models and transactions continue to migrate to online channels and the importance of protecting Intellectual Property, Confidential Information and Personal Data impacts more organisations. Complying with and operating in the spirit of Data Protection legislation and regulations such as GDPR, is even more important given potential reputational and financial damage from non-compliance. All the while, complying with and operating in the spirit of GDPR must become a given and reputations are in the hands of DPOs.

Leaders in cyber risk management

Our experts will assess and monitor your business’s vulnerabilities, and help you prepare for the specific threats you face. We’ll make sure you meet and can exceed the standards and regulations relevant to your sector and commercial activities. We design bespoke frameworks for business continuity and crisis management and support you with cutting edge expertise in cyber security, data protection and information governance.

Regulatory Compliance

More intensive supervision and scrutiny

It is increasingly difficult to navigate regulatory requirements due to changing approaches from regulators (from passive to interventionist), changing regulations as they respond to changing business models, products and markets, and in response to events such as COVID and Brexit. But businesses cannot allow regulatory compliance to become de-prioritised. Keeping abreast of regulations can be difficult due to the significant drain on time and resources and especially when budgets are stretched. That’s where our services are useful in ensuring continued compliance and mitigating the risk of significant fines and sanctions.

Compliance solutions for your exact requirements

Xcina Consulting can help you understand your complex compliance obligations and translate regulations into the requirements that your business must meet. We’ll then help you implement effective frameworks to address each of them and support your team to adopt them. We provide specialised advice, independent assessments to assure the board and senior management of company-wide compliance.
