Experience delivering across multiple projects and workstream
Our security solution architects have broad experience of working across highly complex work-streams and delivery projects and programmes, with multiple dependencies on work package delivery. We always think broadly and work with Business Analysts, Project and Programme Managers with exposure to formal methodologies such as Prince2, to highly unforeseen project risks and mitigate delivery issues well before they arise. Our proactive foresight and experience in this arena assists in successful delivery of programmes and projects we are involved with.
We will never suggest the use of a technical product where the issue is a more systemic problem, that needs to be addressed culturally. We factor-in the human factor.

Our security solution architects can provide their expertise and services aligned to your current level, meeting required deliverables, with maturity roadmaps for bridging efforts to evolve tactical solutions into the strategic realm.
Service process definition and solution lifecycle management
Deployed solutions are only as good as the people, processes and procedures that run them. At JAW Consulting UK we use proven models and techniques to ensure accountability and responsibilities for deployed solutions . Whether this means the definition of new KPI’s, OLA’s and SLA’s for the establishment of a new managed security service, definition of new processes/procedures, RACI matrix’s, or the creation of new job roles, responsibilities and descriptions, we can help implement the solution lifecycle necessary to ensure a new service deployed today, is the same as it is tomorrow.
Measurements and metrics
Our architects understand the value correctly chosen measurements and metrics can add to an organisation’s information security management system. Creating the correct taxonomy and approach can help your organisation gain valuable insights into your security posture , comparisons to industry benchmarks, and continuous-audit level visibility with compliance to your ISMS, underpinning enforcement and compliance monitoring activities. Security measurements and metrics can play a part in organisations of all maturity levels, being used to provide current state visibility to aid cost effective allocation of resources in specific high risk areas, or perhaps to demonstrate evolving maturity of an on-going security transformation change initiative. Using our approach based on NIST 800-55, ISO27005, CIS and others, we can help deliver the visibly your organisation needs to demonstrate, you are in control.
