Corporate IT Cyber Security
Risk Assessment Services
Arming your business with knowledge you can act upon.
Cyber breaches can have a critical impact on any organisation. It’s why every security program in every organisation needs to know where potential weak spots lie—and then work to address them. Independent, holistic cyber risk assessment services can help you:
- Uncover and understand where risks lie
- Understand cyber threats your industry may be vulnerable to
- Assess the impact of these risks to your business
- Plan how to remediate and mitigate those risks
Working closely with your team to understand how your business uses technology as a strategic asset, we use industry-standard cyber risk assessment frameworks (e.g. NIST Cyber Security Framework, ISO27001, ASD Essential 8 and FAIR) to assess your current versus desired maturity. Key risks are then documented and quantified before prioritising a remediation roadmap.
Why perform a risk assessment?

We have strong relationships with the leading cyber vendors, but will only ever recommend risk assessment services or solutions that make strategic sense to you.
Peloton have taken the time to understand our business and reduce our risk. They filter out the false positives and alert us when there is something important we need to know about. They also help us to do a complete cyber security assessment on businesses before we acquire them, which takes time and focus as the requirements are different for every business. In terms of quantifiable results, we have reduced licencing costs and significantly increased our cyber security maturity rating which is a huge achievement.

We were trying to win new business with a global hotel chain. To get this across the line, we needed to tick some serious IT and security boxes. We knew we had gaps that we couldn’t easily fill so we engaged Peloton to help us. Peloton addressed our immediate needs and also taught us to look beyond the tender, so that our cyber security initiatives could support future growth opportunities too. We now have cyber security factored into our solution offering which puts us out in front of our competitors. Plus we got global IT approval from the hotel chain, which was a great result.

Frequently Asked Questions
A cyber security risk assessment is a comprehensive assessment that uncovers where risks lie, specific cyber threats within your industry, assesses the impact of the identified risks to your business and works with you and your business to remediate and mitigate those risks. Ultimately it is about gaining visibility, taking action, reducing impact and overall risk reduction. This is achieved through use of industry-standard cyber risk assessment frameworks (e.g. NIST Cyber Security Framework, ISO27001, ASD Essential 8 and FAIR) to assess current versus desired maturity.
The frequency of cyber security risk assessments is dependent on factors such as the organisation’s industry, and any changes to their systems or processes. A risk assessment should be undertaken on an annual or periodic basis such as every 6-12 months. Additional cyber security risk assessments should occur following an incident within the organisation’s cyber landscape.
There are many benefits to performing a cyber security risk assessment. They allow vulnerabilities to be identified, and assess an organisation’s incident preparedness, business continuity policies and processes. The results from a cyber risk assessment offer the organisation insights to prioritise resources, ensuring they are meeting compliance regulations. The customised security strategy can increase employee awareness and stakeholder confidence, while protecting the organisation with a cost-effective security approach. Performing regular risk assessments ensures opportunities for long-term improvement and the company’s reputation is protected.
