How resilient is your organisation, faced with the seemingly competing demands of driving value while protecting against risk, of innovating and responding to market opportunities while maintaining regulatory compliance?
Businesses must be able to assess and identify the current and emerging risks that will affect their strategies and impact their performance. Supply chain disruption, market volatility, changing regulatory landscape, people resource availability, organisational culture and working patterns… all threaten both day-to-day operations and longer-term strategies.

We identify and assess the likelihood and impact of the risks to your business. We design balanced, proportionate compliance and risk
management solutions, providing analysis and intelligence, complementing your team and expertise, ensuring that the right resources are in the right place.
We recommend improvements to your processes and frameworks, embed risk cultures and improve organisational resilience. We take the time to understand our customers’ needs, their commercial objectives and the risks and threats they face both externally and internally.
Partnering with Xcina Consulting will increase confidence internally, in customers and shareholders… in your organisation’s ability to deliver transformation and drive growth.
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
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.

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,
