Client Overview

The integrated facilities management services provider has a global prescence and the UK arm was able to make a regional decision on CNS Mosaic as the provider.

The Challenge

The main challenge was to have the facilities required up, monitored and secured to the requisite compliance level as quickly as possible. At the same time a major change out of the IT environment was being enacted. CNS were flexible in the approach to the project which meant that the customer was able to achieve their multiple goals in a timely fashion.

CNS has created a new anti-phishing 24/7 service to respond to Metro Bank’s aim. Rather than putting an automated, but ineffective, process in place,

“We have been very happy with the service we’ve received from CNS Group and I look forward to working with you in the future.”

The Solution

CNS Mosaic COMPLY & SECURE HMG  

Attaining compliance in the first instance is a challenge in itself but meeting the maintenance needs of a continuous compliance regime is an even larger problem.

CNS believes that the secret to preserving compliance is to simplify, consolidate, and automate security controls to unify visibility and effectively prioritise remediation efforts.

To meet this goal CNS has created a number of managed services that are intended to work with clients to translate rules and standards into action and behaviour and to ensure that compliance is embedded in the DNA of an organisation so that the benefits can truly be realised.

The Mosaic COMPLY & SECURE offering provides a way for organisations with limited security staff and budget to address compliance and threat management needs. The services deliver all the essential security controls and continuous threat intelligence updates and provide unparalleled security visibility.

Mosaic COMPLY & SECURE is a suite of proactive information security management services providing real time security status and security management information.

The service is appropriate for organisations looking to strengthen their defence against security / cyber threat, gain real time insight to potentially malicious / harmful network activity, weaknesses and vulnerabilities across their security estate, whilst meeting requirements of Compliance regimes. It also enables them to minimise risk across their IT infrastructure through a partnership that provides access to industry experts. 


The Solution

CNS are currently entering the 2nd year of a 2 and half year project, which will see Bird & Bird certified against the ISO27001 standard. To date, CNS worked with Bird & Bird in setting up the project and the project office, provided a structure for the Governance Regime, as well as completing the necessary risk assessments. The current plan aims to have both the London and German offices certified before the end of 2013. CNS will then work with the client to roll out the ISMS across the remaining offices.

In addition to the ISO27001, CNS consultants also advise Bird and Bird on specific BAU security issues. These include technical testing, response to new threats and vulnerabilities, as well as security considerations for new systems.
