What is a cyber security consultant exactly?

A cyber security consultant is an informed outside party that can assess your current IT support system and provide the advice and technology to meet your needs. 

Suitable for organisations with or without a dedicated IT department, a consultant will use their independent experience to strengthen your security. Whether that’s patching up holes or building the entire defence, a cyber security consultant can protect your organisation against data breaches. 

Why do businesses need cyber security consultants? 

Cyberattacks are becoming more and more complex — and with a greater reach. As businesses benefit from transferring data and operations online, they also open themselves up to risk. 

While we all understand the security of a safe in an underground bunker, few of us can really grasp the intricacies of cybercrime and cyber security. And that’s where cyber security experts come in.

What can a cyber security consultant do for your business?

The support of a cyber security consultant can help you safeguard data and avoid data breaches. Such breaches can have wide-reaching consequences including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Damage to your company’s financial standing
  • Irreparable reputational damage
  • A breakdown of trust in client relationships 
  • Time and staff energy lost to repairs 

On the other hand, managed consultancy services will provide protection while asserting your commitment to security to stakeholders and potential business partners. As an individual who can act as an extension of your current team or as an independent agent, consultants are flexible and effective. 

It can be tricky to notice security gaps from your position inside the organisation. Cyber security IT consultancy provides an outside perspective to give your security system a complete audit. With the guidance of an experienced cyber security consultant, you can make informed decisions that are right for your company.

Cyber security consultancy also offers an educational benefit. The human element can be the weakest point of any security system, but proper education about social engineering threats can reduce this risk greatly.

A cyber security consultant might seem like an extra expense if you think your IT support has it covered, but the service saves money over time. By preventing security breaches, security consultants protect your bottom line (and show potential partners your commitment to safety). 

To sum it all up then, a cyber security consultant can:

  • Save you time and money
  • Help deliver a more fine-tuned cyber security strategy 
  • Reduce the risk of a data breach 
  • Maintain the credibility of your organisation 
  • Help you make informed digital decisions
  • Train you and your staff on cyber security best practices
  • And so much more!

Few business owners would argue against the need for a robust security system. However, many rely on outdated IT systems and place too heavy a burden on IT departments with limited resources and expertise. And, while this may mean technological defences are strong, it does leave data exposed to another vulnerability: human error.
