Key Products / Services / Sectors (USPs)

Pionen is a cybersecurity consultancy designed for the Public Sector.

We offer a service catalogue that is fully compliant with the NCSC Cyber Assessment Framework. Our services are onboarded, delivered and maintained by an agile and experienced team, and available to procure via G-Cloud, CSS3 and DOS6. 

Our highly experienced team of security-cleared consultants can help your organisation with the following strategic challenges:

Managing security risk in your organisation

Without building a culture of knowledge around cyber, your organisation leaves itself open to pervasive threats. Our Managing Security Risk service aims to empower your organisation with the tools it needs to educate your teams and build lasting cyber resilience.

By advising and directing your cyber security governance, and supporting the safe management of assets, this service ensures organisation-wide confidence. The security of your people, processes and technology is central to the successful function of your organisation; this service provides the confidence and security necessary to move forward.

Detecting cyber security events

Our cyber security events service provides vigilant event monitoring, logging, and identification, keeping you protected from the most sophisticated of cyber attacks and far ahead of the threat curve.

We will ensure that you will be given the tools and support necessary to upkeep sophisticated defences, that will remain essential to building cyber resilience long after our client-facing service has culminated.

Minimising the impact of security incidents

A cyber incident will only be doomsday if your organisation is ill prepared.

Through the selection and implementation of mitigating technology and activities, we will protect your organisation from the most significant of consequences, and will enable the continuity of essential functions in the event of system or service failure and compromise.

Protecting against cyber attacks

An organisation must adopt a policy that is proactive against cyber threats for successful function in 2022. Our Cyber Attack Policy and Identity service gives you the process tools necessary to achieve just that. Following the culmination of our service, we will ensure that your organisation is left with a policy that defines, implements, communicates, and enforces appropriate processes needed to protect your organisation.

Your organisation also depends on the safety of your data. The storing, access, use and management of your sensitive data requires a cautious policy that will ensure protection from malign actors. Our cyber safety policy will ensure that your data is safe but can still assimilate into existing functions, seamlessly.

Cyber security skills and talent

Our security team not only knows what works, but also how essential education is when building cyber resilience within the public sector. From risk management, to data storage and safety, we will support you in developing your organisation’s cyber skills, focusing on the areas that you require.
