security beyond risk

Emineo Technology is the specialist IT security and data privacy team within Geek-Guru Ltd. We focus on the individual needs of each of our clients using a risk based approach to IT governance. No organisation is without risk and no organisation will ever avoid all IT risks. At Emineo we believe that good information security comes from understanding those risks and then making informed decisions about how they should be mitigated.

As an IASME auditor, Emineo is well positioned to help on issues of both internally focused IT security and externally focused data-privacy. We work with our clients to ensure their IT systems are secure and that they are fully compliant with data protection laws; including the upcoming GDPR regulations.

We can work with you and your organisation to develop an IT security strategy based around globally recognised standards such as, IASME, ISO27001 and Cyber-Essentials. We can also help design, implement and maintain data-privacy programs to ensure compliance with data protection regulations and the expectations of your clients.

information security consulting

Information security is a wide subject and not all IT teams have the time or expertise to keep abreast of this ever-changing field.

Emineo can work with you and your IT team on short, one off, projects or longer term engagements.

  • IT policies, procedures and best practice
  • Risk management and IT governance
  • ISO27001 / ISO27002 compliance and certification
  • Network defence, infrastructure hardening and penetration testing
  • IT Security systems – design and implementation
  • Backup, business continuity and disaster recovery

Our information security team are friendly and approachable. We keep abreast of changes in the IT security landscape so you don’t have to.

data protection consulting

Data protection is a complimentary sub-function of information security and deals with the protection of sensitive user data. Our consultants are IAPP professionals (International Association of Privacy Professionals) and can help with all areas of data protection including GDPR compliance.

data protection consulting

With data protection we talk about the ‘privacy’ of user data. The focus is very much on the rights of those individuals for which you store data. With the EU-GDPR (European General Data Protection Regulations) on the horizon, every organisation should be looking at why, how and where they store user data. Data protection is about much more than just technology. Technology should be used to address specific risks only after a formal risk management process has been conducted. Emineo follow an IAPP privacy management process that is designed specifically to attain and maintain GDPR compliance.

  • Data analysis, auditing and compliance
  • Data protection impact assessments
  • Consent analysis and management

Emineo are on hand for time-limited consultancy engagements (to help up-skill your own data protection team) through to complete out-sourced data-protection management. Our team can even act on your behalf as a data-protection officer helping you comply with the new GDPR regulations. Get in touch to see how we can help with your data protection requirements.

network defence & hardening

Our team have several decades of combined experience with network and server hardening and can help leverage that experience to secure your IT systems. We can work with you to improve the uptime and reduce the attack footprint of your systems.

network defence & hardening

When it comes to network defence we talk about the CIA triad – this is the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of IT systems and data. All three of these are important but not necessarily of equal importance to each organisation. Emineo can work with you to ensure your IT systems are designed in the way that is most important to you.

  • Design and implement high uptime systems
  • System hardening including servers & networks
  • Perimeter hardening – threat management and intrusion detection
  • Encryption at rest and in-transit
  • Data leakage systems
  • Penetration testing and IT security auditing

Emineo are vendor neutral and have both design and implementation capacity. Get in touch to see how we can help with your network and server security requirements.
