Business Continuity Management
Mile House Consulting has unparalleled experience of assisting organisations reduce risk to critical IT infrastructure and non-IT resources as well as developing and exercising an appropriate response if the unexpected does occur.
All organisations suffer from disruption from time to time. The ability to understand what is important, protect assets to ensure critical service delivery and plan a response for major disruptions is fast becoming a key aspect of organisational success.
From a cyber-security perspective, it is now believed to be a matter of when, not if, an organisation will be affected. The ability to respond appropriately will assist an organisation in achieving its strategic objectives.
Implemented correctly, a business continuity management system aims to ensure effective incident management and the timely recovery of critical assets, activities and product/service delivery, thereby protecting the organisation from a range of adverse financial and non-financial impacts.

Cyber Security Management
The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions.
1) It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security.
2) Through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.
Cyber Essentials offers a sound foundation of basic hygiene measures that all types of organisations can implement and potentially build upon. Government believes that implementing these measures can significantly reduce an organisation's vulnerability. However, it does not offer a silver bullet to remove all cyber security risk; for example, it is not designed to address more advanced, targeted attacks and hence organisations facing these threats will need to implement additional measures as part of their security strategy.
What Cyber Essentials does do is define a focused set of controls which will provide cost effective, basic cyber security for organisations of all sizes. The Assurance Framework, leading to the awarding of Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certificates for organisations, has been designed in consultation with SMEs to be light-touch and achievable at low cost.
The two options give organisations a choice over the level of assurance they wish to gain and the cost of doing so. It is important to recognise that certification only provides a snapshot of the cyber security practices of the organisation at the time of assessment, while maintaining a robust cyber security stance requires additional measures such as a sound risk management approach, as well as on-going updates to the Cyber Essentials control themes, such as patching. But we believe this scheme offers the right balance between providing additional assurance of an organisation’s commitment to implementing cyber security to third parties, while retaining a simple and low cost mechanism for doing so.
Mile House Consulting can offer assistance to organisations looking to further understand the cyber threat landscape and implement appropriate levels of control. We can also assist organisations seeking certification to the UK Governments Cyber Essentials Scheme.
Mile House Consulting have enabled multiple organisations benefit from the adoption of a best practice, appropriate, quality management system resulting in increased organisational performance
Best practice quality management promotes the adoption of a process approach when developing, implementing and improving the effectiveness of a quality management system. The aim being to enhance customer satisfaction by meeting customer requirements.
Understanding and managing interrelated processes as a system contributes to the organisations effectiveness and efficiency in achieving its intended results. This approach enables organisations to control the interrelationships and interdependencies among the processes of the system, so that the overall performance of the organisation is improved.
Focussing on a continual improvement philosophy, the process approach involves the systematic definition and management of processes, and their interactions, enabling organisations to achieve their intended outcomes and strategic objectives.
