Actica’s consultants bring expertise across the fullest range of Information and Cyber Security challenges, from policy and strategy development, through designing Security Architectures, to securing compliance with key standards.
We are trusted to deliver by clients for whom security is core business. This includes in the Central Government, Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), Defence, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice sectors.
Addressing the problem
Actica is able to address all aspects of information and cyber security, business continuity and risk management at both technical and management levels. Our approach is characterised by pragmatism – we review the effectiveness of existing security measures before making evidenced recommendations for change on the basis of cost / opportunity / benefit. We approach assignments either by developing a security strategy to complement an organisation’s overall business goals, or through more targeted engagements to address specific, identified areas of concern.
Actica brings the technical competence needed to keep your organisation or business secure and retain the trust of your partners or customers. We combine this with years of practical experience in supporting both public and private sector companies, ranging from sensitive areas of Government, to innovative tech start-ups. Our technical expertise and deep experience is complemented by our keen awareness of current standards and approaches, many of which we have helped to refine.
