IT Security, Risk Management and BCM
In order to help small and medium sized companies ensure that physical, organizational and network security is established or optimized we apply Sycheck IT consulting methodology and reviews, including peer review of existing risk management and business continuity models. We help clients understand current risks and to document these, inlcuidng risk treatment and management review. Business continuity management reviews are also requested including consulting on the implementation of resiliant disaster recovery systems.
In today’s rapidly moving technological environment, many company leaders of mid- to small sized companies are at times overwhelmed with the complexity of the legal, statutory and security requirements now placed on companies operating within the EU and specifically, withinin Germany. The German data privacy law is an example of a best practice which may become the foundation of the new European-wide data security law. We are now helping companies within Europe to ensure that key requirements are met by leadership and their employees, as infringements to this law do result in steep fines.
Health, Safety and Social Compliance
Many mid-sized companies (with around 1000 employees) face unknown or unmanaged risks in the areas of IT security, worker safety and legal compliance. Sycheck site visits may be conducted whereby existing process weaknesses and measures for improvement are identified in the focus areas, i.e., in operational excellence, legal compliance, employee training, facility or supplier management. Key members of management are supported with a hands-on toolset to quickly identify and implement the measures necessary to improve operations, reduce known legal risks, increase employee and client satisfaction and to support the company's long term financial sustainability.
