Security strategy development for critical national infrastructure

Our consulting team worked on a strategic advisory project for a major European critical national infrastructure operator, looking specifically at developing a 5-year plan for the protection of their highest criticality assets and developing internal functions (intelligence, crisis and security). The project also had a particular focus on new and emerging threats, particularly those posed by nation states conducting reconnaissance and physical support to cyber attack operations targeting critical national infrastructure. We also aligned the strategy to best practices promulgated by the United States Department for Homeland Security, the UK Centre for the Protection of the National Infrastructure, and the European Commission.

Outcomes for the client

  • Senior leadership commitment to a 5-year strategy for implementing security measures
  • Government and ministry-level reassurance that the company was protecting assets of national importance
  • Confidence that their strategy was aligned with national and international standards and best practices
