Security by Effect © Assessment

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

Organisations know that security is a strategic enterprise risk that goes far beyond cyber security. If left uncontrolled and unreviewed, security breaches can affect product integrity, business operations, regulatory compliance, investor confidence, brand reputation and the overall customer experience. Executives have a significant responsibility to reassure customers, stakeholders and employees that appropriate safeguards are in place. The security landscape and the array of threats are not new, but the speed at which the threats evolve and attack again is changing. Effective security systems are demanded by consumers, government buyers and corporate partners alike, as a qualifier for business, lucrative contracts or partnerships. With the existence of such demands, businesses must decide on their security risk appetite and how they wish to mitigate and respond to security and business continuity threats. A number of questions should be considered.

• What is your security strategy?

• Do you need support in assessing the performance of your security systems?

• Are you looking to improve the security maturity and culture within your organisation?

• Would you like to gain a better understanding of the varied regulatory requirements?

• Are you looking to prepare for evolving security threats?

• Are you looking to identify where you are in comparison to your peers?

ERG can provide assurance that effective and business appropriate security systems and structures are in place through conducting a Security by Effect © Assessment (SEA). ERG’s Security by Effect © Assessment provides an in-depth review of an organisation’s ability to protect its assets and its preparedness against business threats. The ERG assessment takes a detailed look at people, process and technology, in order to provide you with an understanding of your existing vulnerabilities, the performance of existing mitigations and the response systems you have in place. The SEA identifies and prioritises remediation areas and supports performance improvement implementation plans. These results will enable you to demonstrate compliance and resilience, both of which provide competitive advantage. The Security by Effect © Assessment has been developed through a combination of international standards and processes. Read more at

The Process

Working together with your team, ERG professionals will conduct a series of reviews and conduct a combination of tests, interviews and workshops, to assist you to manage your security vulnerabilities and issues. The assessment will evaluate your security maturity at both a corporate and local levels, providing comparisons to industry best practice and peers. The Security by Effect © Assessment findings will support you to identify, prepare for and disrupt the threats you face. For more information on ERG’s SEA, please contact the team at
