Tailored Security Consultancy

Managing risk doesn’t necessarily mean risk free. At Protega, we think of the bigger picture. We can examine your organisation’s whole system, analysing whether your ICT technical and procedural structures will weather a concerted attack. This is the difference Protega provides from simple penetration testing, to deeply understanding the inherent technology risk your business carries daily. We believe technical counter measures are merely the first step in proactive cyber security management. Through a committed client relationship, Protega takes control of your organisation’s specific needs, developing focused, cost effective security strategies and ultimately ‘de-risking’ your business operations.

  • Penetration Testing

    Protega believe that resilience is key to safeguard thorough cyber security, yet this can only be achieved through analysing the probability of an attack. This is where Protega steps in, implementing tailored programmes to highlight the vulnerabilities within an organisation's systems. No company can truly declare themselves secure, particularly without undertaking these crucial initial assessments.

    Our Security Testing team is a group of highly experienced ethical hackers and security consultants who have worked with some of the most reputable organisations in the region. Protega's security testing team gives you the real-world experience of attack by attempting to access your ICT environment from the outside, the inside, or we can tailor a specific security assessment targeting your critical websites or systems.

    Protega believes in working closely with our clients, devising an agreed test schedule and plan within specific timeframes. This can often mean testing outside of core business hours, with a pre-determined scope of how far into your systems we will delve. These processes lead to minimising any lengthy impact upon your business activity, a client advantage that Protega work hard to provide.

  • Incident Response Planning

    A Cyber Incident is a matter of when, not if, a compromise will occur within you organisation. Compromises which likely affect infrastructure systems and compromise key data such as personally identifiable information. An Incident Response Plan (IRP) guides the response to such breaches. The primary objective of an IRP is to manage a cybersecurity event or incident in a way that limits damage, increases the confidence of external stakeholders, and reduces recovery time and costs. Taking the time to develop a robust IRP through  planning, communication, and practice of the incident response process to ensure your organisation has the best life line when you need it most.

    Protega has the necessary experience to help build and develop your Incident Response Plan.

  • Security Health Check


    Protega are here to put your mind at ease. Through our health check system, we can provide you with a snapshot of the level of security protection your organisation’s current strategies provide, an assessment which spans across many of the high-risk areas affecting your operational capability. This entry-level analysis will highlight a number of areas where many organisations’ existing strategies fail: general network security; employee behaviours; DLP & other information leakage; malware and intrusion attack events.

    Protega’s health check can also be tailored to provide an overview of vertical-specific or general compliance and regulatory requirements, providing both a detailed technical and executive summary for remediation and decision-making purposes. 

  • Governance, Risk and Compliance


    An effective cyber security strategy requires support and structure that commences from the top of every organisation. Without a committed board governing the cyber security strategy, managers will struggle to efficiently implement controls, making mitigation of high severity risks a much tougher process than necessary.

    Protega’s GRC practice, can ease the process of risk mitigation. For example, we can provide an organisation with a virtual CISO capability in tandem with consultant support and advice. We find that most organisations require some support and Protega is able to play a strategic role in the transformation of security strategy, the implementation of process and policy and certification.
