Organisations depend heavily on IT to enable business-critical operations. The availability, integrity and security of these systems is therefore essential to continued organisational success and future prosperity.
The extraordinary increase in the sophistication, complexity and frequency of cyber-attacks and cyber-intrusion is unabating. Meanwhile technological evolution and adoption in both our personal and working lives continues to advance at an exponential pace, with our increased reliance only deepening the potential operational impact of security breaches for businesses of all sizes.
As individuals and organisations continue to embrace this digital first approach, the economic opportunities are huge. But the global effect of digitisation and digital transformation is creating an enhanced risk profile for all.
Lack of security awareness or ignorance of the possible dangers can result in organisations being exploited, with potentially profound business impact including significant financial penalty or loss, reduced operational capability and long term reputational damage.
“Cyber security is currently a global priority and focus for organisations and governments alike, and this trend will continue. Security threats continue to increase in frequency and sophistication, with our connected world making the potential impact of successful attacks deeper and more widespread than ever before.”

A Pragmatic approach to safeguarding your digital assets
At Littlefish, we never underestimate the importance of sound security policy, process and application, but we refuse to board the “scaremongering” band wagon, quoting the latest four-letter acronym and using fear and snake oil sales tactics to secure business. Instead, we equip our Cyber Practice with exceptional talent, and partner wisely, to assist our clients in defending their organisations most coveted digital assets, from data and intellectual property to people and process.
Our approach is to provide highly experienced security expertise that can assess the current situation, apply best practice risk analysis methodology and then identify the most appropriate action plan. We work with our customers to objectively assess the risk-cost equation of the plan’s recommendations and we appreciate more than most, that this isn’t a blank cheque engagement. Our common-sense recommendations and intelligent action plan, allows our clients to be as secure as they can whilst enabling the business goals.
The outcome of our engagement gives our customers a clear roadmap for recommended actions and priorities. From policy to practicalities, making recommendations around policy creation and deployment, supported by recommendations of security solution adoption, our approach is informative, thorough, comprehensive yet pragmatically balanced with real life experience and sound business understanding.
