Cyber Hygiene Assessment

Cyber-attacks are not limited to large organisations or specific industries In fact, many attackers will purposely focus on small to medium businesses (SMB) and charities as they know that in many cases, knowledgeable security personnel and budgetary resources will be more limited in these organisations.

However, what should be of interest to SMBs is that according to a recent report from Microsoft, basic cyber security hygiene can help to protect an organisation from about 98% of attacks. As such, many organisations can significantly reduce their exposure to cyber-attacks by putting in place some controls based around best practice and Secora Consulting have developed a solution to guide you through this process.

Our Cyber Hygiene Assessment is a cost-effective way to gain an insight into weaknesses in your current security posture which may leave you vulnerable to the most common cyber-attacks. To do this, we assess three main components within your business, People, Processes and Technologies and we utilize a subset of controls from CIS Controls v8 which are aligned to Microsoft’s Basic Security Hygiene recommendations to protect against 98% of attacks.

Our Approach

The output of the assessment will provide you with detailed relevant findings along with practical recommendations that can be implemented to decrease the likelihood of your organisation falling victim to a cyber attack.

One of our experienced consultants will interview key stakeholders and conduct a review of your existing information security controls and documentation. They will then issue a report based on their findings. The report will highlight areas of positive cyber hygiene along with areas which we believe require further development as well as recommendations based on their experience and your organisations desired goals around cyber security.


What to Expect

Secora Consulting will provide a report detailing validation of all existing information management and security controls, identifying any missing or incomplete areas that we believe should be improved to strengthen your cyber security posture. These will be provided in a prioritised roadmap to help your organisation identify ‘quick wins’ and focus on making significant improvements to their overall security posture quickly and efficiently. We will also include our opinion on the remediation effort timelines and any areas where we can assist in the remediation efforts by providing specialist resources.


The Cyber Hygiene Assessment report will include:

  • An overall assessment of the current maturity of your information security posture;

  • Specific gaps within your organisation between your current posture and industry best practices;

  • A roadmap of when to implement any missing controls based on prioritisation;

  • A compliance report based on industry best practices.
