Amethyst supports the public and private sector with reaching appropriate and proportionate levels of assurance within the Cyber Security remit of Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) including security and supplier/third party assurance.

The SbD methodology is intended to enable security consideration at project conception, providing considerable long-term cost savings as security issues can be identified and remedied at project initiation

Amethyst are able to provide their expertise on this new and improved approach to cyber security. SbD is intended to enable a culture of proactive risk management and security consideration throughout a capability’s lifecycle.

In addition, Amethyst helps private sector customers to comply with legal and regulatory requirements such as the Data Protection Act 2018 including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and can also advise on the compliance requirement for processing personal and sensitive information data including offshoring and/or in the cloud.
