PffirewallThis offering covers design, installation, configuration and consultancy services where our experienced engineers or consultants visit your premises to deliver solutions following pre-consultative sales consultancy.

Because every organisation is different, the requirements will be different. This means your security policies will be different to other organisations. AchRock understands this; our consultants have worked with organisations needing to comply with compliance acts such as PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley) and HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act). We are able to work closely with your organisation to create effective custom IT security policies that minimises risks to your business. From guest access policies, acceptable user policies, through to network policies and more, our consultants have experience in writing these effective policies.

 

Project Management

Our consultants are experienced and certified project managers (PMP and Prince2) with years of industry experience in delivering IT solutions in both private and public sectors. Our consultants are involved in managing every project from inception to completion (requirements, designs, implementation, training and support) whilst ensuring that the expected quality is delivered and the project completed within the specified time.

Security Policies and Compliance Acts

Most organisations today now realise that in order to meet security standards such as PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard), HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act) and SOX (Sarbanes Oxley Act), their information security management systems must meet certain security criteria. They therefore need a plan and procedure that must be clearly defined and followed in order to secure not only their physical and IT assets but most importantly their corporate data.

This is where a security policy comes in, it is a written document that includes acceptable use policies describing how the organisation plans to effectively educate its employees and protect its assets. It clearly defines the security measurements that will be carried out and enforced however to ensure its effectiveness, evaluations are constantly carried out hence the document is continuously updated.

However there are a number of factors that add to the complexity of issues in writing a security policy. For instance, the size of the organization, the amount of information & computing systems they own as well as the sensitivity of business information they need to transact in their market place. To ensure effectiveness the organisation must find a better approach to define these policies.

This is where we come in, our security experts take a consultative approach to help your organisation to define and write a suite of security policies as well as using effective security controls, strategies, methodologies and technology to enforce the policies.

Hands-On Training for Managers and CEOs

We believe that both staff and managers need to be educated in IT security order to minimize security threats to their business. This does not mean that non-technical staff like business analysts must become experts in IT security nor does it mean that the technical staff must become experts in management and leadership skills. However a balance is required in order to fill the void gap. Our training gives a strong understanding of both business issues and technical specifications in order to achieve results that meet the organisational expectations.

We offer training in business analysis, management and leadership skills as well as various IT and security related courses. Most of our courses are offered in our educational centres in the UK where we have our state-of-the-art-equipment. We also offer some courses online.
