Cyber Program Uplift
A methodical and tested approach to enhancing organisational maturity
We provide maturity assessments and critical advice across entire organisations or selected capabilities, for example security operations, architecture, vendor management, governance and research and development. These are typically a strong starting point for customers to baseline their current operations and pivot towards achieving target objectives within their security program.
Our delivery methodology is driven by transparent communication with senior leadership, middle management, operational specialists, and a nuanced understanding of enterprise risk. Akela provides actionable insights that can drive progression to a desired future state. Key outputs from a Cyber Maturity Assessment include.

A cyber maturity assessment is also a valuable exercise to run at set intervals to test results of an uplift program.
