Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Nexus understand that an effective IT security strategy should be intrinsically aligned to operational and financial restrictions. Our IT consultants are able to work closely with you by employing a multi-faceted approach to help you to develop a strategy and governance structure that will use technology to improve the operation and management of your organisation.

In defining an IT security strategy, we help clients to identity gaps between their current IT capabilities and their current operation or future direction. Working in collaboration with your IT team we can help to design a security technology roadmap, identifying initiatives that enable you to reach defined goals.
To successfully execute and manage an IT security strategy, your organisation needs an IT security governance framework that defines how users and operators can interact with your business technology systems and infrastructure. Our consultants can help organisations to create IT security governance procedures that mitigate risks by managing user-access rights, operating protocols and change-management policies.

Nexus offers a wide range of authorised and bespoke IT security training courses catering for both end users and technical personnel.

Efficiency is an essential part of a successful organisation, so it is imperative that your personnel maximise your IT investment by mastering the hardware and software solutions that you deploy.

It's a proven fact that effective IT training not only equips individuals with the skills to be more productive in the workplace but also promotes confidence and loyalty. Your most valuable asset is your skilled workforce.
