Netify Review

CyberScale is recommended for UK SMEs and global enterprises aiming to better understand and wish to improve their cybersecurity posture. Clients can opt for a standard cybersecurity training program or instead choose a training course specifically tailored to the business. Key features of CyberScale's services portfolio are their training courses, vCISO, and security assessments. Due to CyberScale's modest size, their clients can benefit from faster responses and unique customer service not found elsewhere.

CyberScale offers a high degree of flexibility and agility, enabling services to be tailored to specific customer requirements. Their Virtual CISO (vCISO) is a perfect fit for businesses wishing to bridge the gap between IT and Senior Management. Their assessments and training can help businesses of any size understand their attack surface and identify vulnerabilities whilst also raising employees' cybersecurity awareness and providing solid strategies to help mitigate risks.


CyberScale Reviews

"The security assessment conducted for us by CyberScale really helped us understand the gaps in our security and associated risks to our business."

- James Austin, Lexxika

"DOHS supplies consultancy services to the offshore industries and we work with global clients on critical projects where security of all data is paramount. CyberScale recommended to us to review our systems and where appropriate recommend improvements to reduce or mitigate risks.

The review process was in-depth and thorough and the knowledge and impartial advice that we received was first rate. We would highly recommend CyberScale and their team to any small or large companies who want to review and improve their cyber security."

- Nick Oliver, Director, Dave Oliver Hydrographic Services Ltd.

"We're seeing more and more cybercrime in the UK, and it's important that we provide our people with the relevant training.

CyberScale approached this project collaboratively, and really took the time to understand us and the housing sector. We found their employees knowledgeable, and the interactive sessions were exactly what we were looking for."

- Nadine Tapp, Head of Flagship Academy, Flagship Group.

"When we made a business decision to adopt home and remote working arrangments on a permanent basis after initially introducing them due to Covid-19, it was imperative to ensure that the security of data and systems was maintained.

The Home and Remote working security assessment undertaken for us by CyberScale allowed us to gain an independent view of the security implications, along with a clear set of recommendations to address any opportunities for improvement, helping us move forward with full confidence."

- Jamie Hopkins, ICT Manager, Orwell Housing Association Ltd.

Professional Services: 

Virtual CISO (vCISO):

For businesses wishing to meet the critical challenge of improving cyber resilience capabilities but facing difficulty due to budget constraints, CyberScale offers a flexible Virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). CyberScale works with you to understand your business, track cyber risk activities and establish targets to help you meet your cybersecurity goals. CyberScale vCISO can drive transformative improvements across areas such as:

  • Security frameworks and compliance
  • Policies and processes
  • Executive and staff awareness
  • Technology evaluation
  • Supply chain governance
  • Strategy and role definition
  • On-going awareness and ad-hoc support

Through ongoing commitment, vCISO can develop further and provide strategic support and guidance for the following:

  • Security architecture
  • Security audit and assurance
  • Leadership development
  • Environmental, Social and Governance

Security Assessments:

CyberScale security assessments provide a pragmatic approach to help you spot vulnerabilities, identify risks and discover the needed modifications to ensure the safety of your client and business data. The security assessment enables a holistic view of your current risk management model. It delivers fit-for-purpose recommendations and a roadmap tailored to meet the specific needs of your business.

The assessment can be used to assess your business against best practices for your cybersecurity threat environment or can be tailored to meet particular security and compliance standards such as Cyber Essentials, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, ISO 27001, PCI DSS and NIS, amongst others. Using information gathered from workshop sessions, CyberScale can identify and analyse the risks facing your business and create an assessment report and cybersecurity roadmap. The roadmap implementation can be done in-house or with assistance from CyberScale in either a fully-managed or advisory capacity.

Cybersecurity Incident Response Planning:

The Incident Response Planning (IRP) service includes a workshop for appropriate team members to discuss core components such as Resources, Roles, supporting systems, communication, integration with other plans and training. Creation of an initial draft, reviewed by your team as often as necessary to create the final version for delivery. The initial draft will include supporting process documentation, and high-level process flows.

The next stage will be a plan and process familiarisation session with relevant team members. CyberScale can also build Incident Response Exercises and tailored Incident Response Run Books.

Ransomware Risk Assessment:

The CyberScale ransomware risk assessment is initiated with a complete discovery session to review company information and data. This will include your current position regarding incident management, levels of risk awareness across your teams, and security controls you currently support (process, policies and technical). CyberScale will then deliver a report containing the following:

  • Needed modifications to increase resilience and effectively manage ransomware attacks
  • Key risk areas within your business
  • Additional or enhanced preventative measures recommendations
  • How to raise risk awareness and how to manage risks across your workforce
  • Possible key business impacts, including reputational damage, operational disruption, loss of data, regulatory sanctions and financial costs

Cybersecurity Policies:

Cyberscale also offers the discovery and creation of cybersecurity policies. The first stage is communication with your team and reviewing existing cybersecurity policies and procedures. This enables the most crucial policy requirements to be determined and what policy content is necessary to meet compliance requirements for industry regulations or certifications.

CyberScale will then proceed to produce a report outlining recommended policies in their order of priority as well as a timescale for the creation of each. The order of importance will also define the order in which policy drafts are created for you to review. Once reviewed, a final draft is approved and developed.

Once a policy has been approved, CyberScale can assist in recommending the best approach for implementing each policy appropriately and effectively.

Remote Working Security:

The CyberScale Home and Remote working Security Assessments are divided into four phases: Discovery, Risk identification, Recommendations and Action plan. Discovery involves a review of essential documentation and discussing with your teams for relevant information needed to assess your remote and home working security. This will allow the assessment of technology use, training processes and supporting policies for identifying security risks to home and remote working.

CyberScale will then generate a report outlining the critical risk areas associated with remote working alongside recommendations on mitigating, eliminating or managing the risks. The report and recommendations are then discussed to make an action plan so that you can safely move forward with your home and remote working arrangements.

The company can assist your business in becoming Cyber Essentials certified, a mandatory requirement for many UK public sector contracts. Cyber Essentials covers:
