Cyber Accelerate – Fast track to cyber security for SMEs

Cyber Accelerate Fast track to cyber security for SMEs

Cyber attack is often viewed as a risk which only affects high-profile, asset-rich businesses, but as traditional targets for cyber attack enhance their protection, SMEs are quickly becoming targets.

Cyber Accelerate – Fast track to cyber security for SMEs - KPMG NZ

It is increasingly important that smaller businesses, which have not historically considered themselves to be a target for cyber-crime, develop resilient cyber defences. Attackers are focusing on SMES with lower levels of cyber maturity as large corporates, the more traditional targets, enhance their protection.

Cyber Accelerate is a KPMG offering designed to help small and mid-tier organisations protect themselves from cyber attack, through a suite of tailored cyber security services and toolsets that don’t require significant IT resources to implement.  The development of Cyber Accelerate has drawn on the knowledge of a combination of KPMG specialists in information protection, technical security, risk infrastructure, organisational design, user education and security operations. These combined skills have been utilised to create an approach which is designed to respond to the cyber threats your organisation faces every day.

Cyber Accelerate provides a range of tailored cyber security services and toolsets to help SMEs proactively manage their risks and take advantage of the opportunities presented.  These include:

  • Cyber Maturity Assessment - Undertake a detailed assessment of your organisation’s ability to protect its information assets and its preparedness against cyber threats.
  • Cyber in a Box - Protect yourself from cyber attack through a series of pre-packaged cyber defence policies, standards, procedures and security awareness training materials.
  • Ransomware+ Advisory Services - Undertake a proactive assessment of your ability to prevent, detect and react to a ransomware incident.
  • Penetration and Red Team Testing - Understand your cyber security risks through undertaking a real world simulation of an attacker attempting to gain unauthorised access.
  • Phishing Test - Evaluate the security awareness of your staff through performing a simulated phishing attack.
  • ThreatInspect® Intel - Use actionable threat intelligence information to provide ongoing identification of whether your IPs and domains are involved in suspicious or malicious activity, in order to provide early identification of a potential breach.
  • Certification and Third Party Controls Assurance - Demonstrate to your customers and business partners that you take cyber security seriously through getting your security certified against internationally recognised standards.
  • ThreatInspect® Vulnerability Scanning - Assess your IT systems for security weaknesses through detailed automated technical analysis.
  • ThreatInspect® Analysis - Detect breaches through using coloration, threat intelligence and analysis techniques to identify if you have already been compromised.
