When security matters, Norbroch can help. We specialise in protecting highly valuable assets from capable adversaries.
We are pleased to offer initial advice to businesses, non-profit organisations, government departments and other security professionals completely free with no strings attached. We keep any conversations you have with us completely confidential.
Operators of security systems often look only at individual alerts that indicate they need to take action. Looking at trends of activity across all your systems can reveal patterns that you would otherwise miss; staff not correctly operating the systems, faults and even indications of more sophisticated attacks.
We can help you analyse your security data and enable you to use the systems you already have to best effect.
We find that secure destruction and disposal of sensitive documents and equipment is area that many organisations overlook. We can guide you on what you need to destroy, and how you should destroy it to make sure your information remains confidential.
How much would the information in that email you just sent be worth to a competitor? How about a foreign government? How did you protect it? Would the fact that you sent a message at that particular time to a particular destination tell you adversary all they need to know?
Did you use the hotel wi-fi? Did you leave your laptop in your room when you went for dinner?
If you have information you need to send around the world, we have the experience to help you deliver it discreetly and securely.
The beginning of a project, whether that involves designing a building, a network or software, is the absolutely the right time to think about security. At Norbroch we love the opportunity to create a solution that is secure by design rather than an expensive after-thought.
Policy and procedure: two very different beasts, but both important. If you have just been asked to write one or both for your organisation, it can seem pretty daunting. Where should you start? Do you understand the risks that your organisation is taking? What level of risk are you prepared to accept to do business? How do you quantify your risks? The good news is that you probably know the answers to these questions already. Norbroch can help you structure your approach and work with you bring the rest of your organisation on board.
Whether your organisation relies on your Internet-facing website, your corporate IT or a global network of satellites we can help you ensure that your data reaches you and your clients intact whilst remaining confidential. Norbroch can offer independent advice to help you choose the right products and guide you in implementing the right procedures to make best use of your security investment.
Perhaps you’ve just won a contract and you need to prove ISO 27001 compliance? The good news is that you’re probably much of the way to achieving it and you don’t even know it. ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard that describes how to manage your information security. Many people talk about it in terms of IT security but it also covers areas such as physical security of your premises and procedures your staff should be following.
It's about understanding what might go wrong and how bad it would be, doing something to make things less likely to go wrong and keeping an eye open to check that what you did is effective. See, that doesn’t look so hard, does it? The document that formally spells this all out is subject to copyright so we can’t publish it here nor send you a copy but you can buy it from the British Standards Institute.
Norbroch can help you implement your Information Security Management System (ISMS; a set of policies and procedures) or check your existing one to ensure it’s in place and your staff are following it (typically called an audit).
We can build what you need as a bespoke product just for you, or we can look to plug the gap with our own commercial product that we can offer to others. Don't hesitate to call us to discuss your needs.
If your IT manager has been bamboozling you with ports, services, remote exploits and hot-fixes or your security manager has been baffling you with ANPR, tiger-traps, CCTV identification and MJPEG storage requirements, we can help both of you talk the same language. Security concepts are much less daunting (yes, even in IT security) once you’ve cut through the jargon. You'll be throwing around phrases like cyber security and advanced persistent threat with the best of them before you know it.
Are you planning your latest spy or crime thriller? Planning to feature hacking, lock-picking, fingerprint scanning, mobile phone tracking? If you want your audience to become absorbed in your story, they need to believe it. We can help to make your fiction convincing.
