Assessing the risk 

Protecting your network, and your business and customers' information, from cyber threats and data breaches can be challenging. 

Mitigating the impacts of a potential cyber incident relies on a thorough understanding of your risks, a defined cyber strategy and ongoing governance to ensure you have the appropriate controls in place to prevent, detect and respond to cyber-attacks and breaches.

Aura works as your trusted advisor to develop your risk management approach and benchmark against industry best practices such as ISO27001 or the NIST Cyber Security Framework.

Organisation Security Assessments

A robust approach to cyber security is vital for any organisation.


An Organisational Security Assessment is a full review of your security policies and practices, using either internationally recognised frameworks, such as NIST CSF, ISO27001 or the CIS Critical Controls, or Aura’s own 31 domain assessment process.

We equip you with a strategic document that outlines where your security practices are today and where they should be, using a multi-year roadmap, to become a cyber-mature organisation.
