Cyber-attacks and sabotage can cripple businesses, and also increase recovery time for their operations and systems. Agilient’s Business Continuity Management system back-up recovery and strategies allow Victorian businesses, services and departments to respond and recover effectively against cyber-attacks. Agilient’s framework follows four phases:
  • Prepare & Prevent
  • Respond

Emergency Management

Victoria is well versed in preparing for emergency situations and lockdowns. And with the current pandemic, it is critical for businesses and Government services to be able to manage during an emergency scenario. Agilient has developed a business resilience framework that guides businesses in Melbourne and ensures they survive most emergency scenarios. They follow industry standards to ensure that the security and practices provided are optimal.

Disaster Recovery

Hot summers and freezing cold winters frequently cause natural disasters in Victoria such as bushfires and floods. Agilient works alongside Victorian Government departments and organizations to provide Disaster Recovery Plans. These recovery plans help organisations to assess the risks associated with a natural disaster, and  provide solutions that help Melbourne businesses recover and improve on their existing initial response. Agilient’s customised and robust approach, consistent with best practices relevant to your industry and ISO Standards, ensures that your IT Disaster Recovery Plan (ITDRP) mitigates risks. These can include:
  • Extended disruption or inability to deliver services that depend on systems
  • Inability to recover systems and restore lost data
  • Subsequent financial loss
  • Reputational damage

Frequently Asked Penetration Testing Questions

Agilient provides a number of frameworks and industry standards for both physical security and cybersecurity. The scope of the assessment would be defined once we have identified your requirements, and the type of framework needed for implementation. Contact us today for a confidential discussion.

A penetration test is a good approach to mitigate cybersecurity risks. There is no standardised timeline for conducting penetration testing, because each client’s situation is different, and their requirements for documentation may vary. The first step would be to consult with us at Agilient, so that we fully understand your organisation’s needs. Agilient conducts penetration testing in the following areas:

  1. Websites and Applications
  2. Wireless networks
  3. Corporate networks

Agilient’s approach to penetration testing through our specialised model allows businesses in Victoria to stay ahead of the risks, and mitigate threats associated with cyber-attacks. A detailed guide about our model is found here. To book your penetration test today contact us at Agilient

Agilient has several offices located across Australia, including New South Wales and Queensland. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Agilient has set up virtual consultation services. This allows us to bypass the physical distancing regulation and still connect with our clients . For more information about our assessment service within and outside of Victoria, contact us today.

Agilient provides strategies and plans for organisations to handle emergency situations. These strategies are:
  1. IT Disaster Recovery Plan
  2. Business Resilience Program
Before implementing these strategies, Agilient conducts assessments on the organisation’s current model/strategy in order to identify areas of improvement. Depending on the severity of the situation and the response required, there may be cases where our response team might be needed to help deal with that specific emergency situation. Contact us at Agilient to start planning for your organisation’s emergency response.

The first step in conducting an onsite consultation in Victoria is to contact Agilient using this form. Please include in your enquiry what you need Agilient to assess specifically, and if there is a certain security standard in mind that your organisation follows or would like to implement or improve. One of our consultants will contact you to follow up and set an appointment for the onsite consultation.

The BCM framework is crucial to businesses recovering from either natural disasters, cyber-attacks or terror attacks. Agilient has included this framework within the Business Continuity and Resilience program. Within the BCM framework, our consultants conduct the following review:
  1. Impact Assessment
  2. Development and Implementation
  3. Testing
  4. Maintenance
  5. Training
The process for a BCM framework consultation is very simple – contact us at Agilient to set up an appointment.

While it is important for organisations to have an Emergency Management Plan, multiple consultations within a short period of time will not increase the model’s resilience and effectiveness overall. It is possible to book in multiple consultations for Emergency Management Planning, however based on ISO standards and other industry standards Agilient’s  Business Continuity and Resilience program ncludes a Review and Improve stage, which encourages businesses to conduct a review assessment at a scheduled period.

Agilient has extensive experience in partnering with Federal and State Government agencies and Australian businesses, to ensure they have effective disaster recovery capability. We assist clients in determining the balance between focusing on preventative actions and planning to manage the consequences of possible disruptions.

Importantly, IT Disaster Recovery Plans (ITDRP) are not static documents. Agilient recommends including scheduled reviews of your ITDRP to ensure that all components are up-to-date and aligned with your current business objectives.
