CSP - Cyber Security Partner
PREA – Physical Risk Exposure Analysis
APT - Advanced Persistent Threat
BII is perhaps better known within the cyber security industry for its forensics team and the creation and delivery of the comprehensive cherry pick PREA service. The professional service which interestingly combines both physical and cyber intelligence gathering techniques with an output of various attack scenarios delivering a true to life threat exposure value.
In late 2010 BII was recognised by most London based enterprise cyber teams as the white-label company that were on call for incident response services. With the ever growing rate of cybercrime and advanced persistent threats, BII became the de-facto partner for setting up forensic readiness plans and offered a retainer package for larger consultancy partners as an intro to the cyber response market.
In 2011 BII adapted further and began working on behalf of many business continuity and crisis/risk management consultancies. Having worked alongside many thought leaders and innovative service providers, BII adopted pro-active and re-active consultancy divisions to counter its growing demand for bespoke service delivery in a financially unstable market. In late 2012 BII named its incident response service 'ID999' and has plans to extend its service into the cyber identity fraud arena with mobile forensics growing in demand.
Technology vendors view BII as a route to market through their sales and consultative approach, educating businesses with rising trends and act in this sense as an independent reseller of security and risk tools.
Large consultancies use BII as an extension to their business portfolio by offering BII's services as their very own to add a layer of expertise which does not require internal team setup or additional infrastructure. It also opens doors for cross selling as the introduction of cyber consultancy in today's age is almost mandatory.
BII continues to deliver technology solutions, licensing, vulnerability testing and the delivery of their ID999 incident response service to its direct client base and has plans to extend its reach in 2013 whilst also developing closer relationships with vendors and clients alike.
'We feel we have been hiding under hats with our white label services for a little too long. 2013 is an exciting year for BII. We have a number of services which have been locked away within exclusive retainers so I'm sure many other enterprise organisations will want to see what is now available to them. Our client feedback has been essential. It has infused a collective belief that our delivery and vision is adding real value and we truly enjoy what we do here at BII'.
- Stuart Hargreaves, Business Development Director.
BII claim to have reduced annual security licensing cost for 15% of its client base in 2012 by combining software and hardware technology license annual renewal contracts. BII is transparent with its clients about the profit margins available through licensing renewals and has a structure to reduce the costs on bulk licensing. In essence the more licenses that are assigned to BII within the CSP agreement, the greater the annual saving on operational licensing costs. A service which many UK businesses will enquire over in the coming months.
BII use the internal client relationship management system to correlate future project trends in all sectors and vertical markets. Thus allowing them to integrate vendor technologies delivering strong value layered technology solutions.
BII Compliance report that they intend on integrating technology vendors further in 2013. The new website www.bii-compliance.co.uk has many intriguing services and innovative emerging vendors that will interest many enterprises. There is an urgent need for creative thought leading to the next generation of cyber security capability and BII with their CSP approach are interesting.
New business models are forcing greater interdependency between people, organisations and continents in order to successfully manage cyber risk. Success will require an ability to anticipate, deter, detect, resist and tolerate attacks, understand and predict cyber risks, and respond and recover effectively at all levels, whether individual, enterprise, national or across international markets. In order to meet the demands of the future we will require new understanding, governance, regulation, partnerships, skills and tools. BII Compliance is positioned directly the address all of the above.
