Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
As part of planning and designing a new service which uses Information Technology, Cyber Security must be considered. Roke’s Secure Architecture and Risk Assessment service provides support to service planning teams through the application of a well-defined Cyber Risk Assessment process:

(1). Understand User Needs – what does the system need to do?

(2). Asset Identification – what information or service needs to be protected?

(3). Threat Identification – what is the system likely to be exposed to?

(4). Vulnerabilities – in the current design, where is the solution vulnerable?

(5). Risk Identification – based on 1 to 5, what are the current risks when operating the system?

(6). Risk Control – the development of mitigations for the top risks.

(7). Risk Management – the ongoing management of Cyber risk.

Roke are able to use this Risk Assessment process, either to assist with the definition of a secure architecture or to review the architectures produced by client design teams. Performing this activity early and before the service is implemented enables savings in cost, time to market and reputation through the reduction in re-work in latter phases of the service development.

How the setup or migration service works
When planning to migrate to the Cloud, or between Cloud services, it's vital that Cyber Security is considered, including changes to the threat landscape since the service was originally implemented. Roke’s Secure Architecture and Risk Assessment service provides support to teams who are planning the migration of services through the application of Cyber Risk Assessment of the new service:
(1). Understand User Needs – what does the system need to do?
(2). Asset Identification – what information or service needs to be protected?
(3). Threat Identification – what is the system likely to be exposed to?
(4). Vulnerabilities – in the current design, where is the solution vulnerable?
(5). Risk Identification – based on 1 to 5, what are the current risks when operating the system?
(6). Risk Control – the development of mitigations for the top risks.
(7). Risk Management – the ongoing management of Cyber risk.

Roke are able to use this Risk Assessment process to review the architectures and service migration plans produced by design teams.
