Telecommunications providers in New South Wales work alongside Agilient to identify, manage and develop their security strategies in order to keep their communication lines operational, while also functioning at an optimal level.

Public Venues & Events

The popularity of the Public Venues and Events industry in New South Wales has led to a proliferation of events across Sydney and surrounds. With a rapidly expanding population, and a thriving tourist industry, this sector will continue to grow. In 2018 alone, millions of people visited the Sydney Opera House, while also attending cultural events such as Vivid Sydney.

Agilient continues to work with Sydney’s Events sector to provide high standards of security and essential consultations. These services range from planning security protocols to assessing risks and threats associated with certain events and venues. For more information on securing public venues & events click here.

Physical Security

Experienced in working with New South Wales Government Agencies, Defence Forces and critical infrastructure, Agilient provides high-end security standards that help keep businesses and Government physically safe. Many businesses in Sydney require security assessments along with security governance framework integration and managed security strategies which help them reach their security objectives.

Agilient approaches the implementation of physical security using the Enterprise Risk Management framework, which assesses the following areas of the business:

  • Identification of potential events that may affect the organisation
  • Management of risk within organisational boundaries
  • Provision of reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of organisational objectives

Along with following guidelines and frameworks from other industry standards in the security sector, Agilient provides a holistic approach to their clients. For more information about security services click here.

Business Continuity Management (BCM)

The aftermath of cyber-attacks and sabotage can leave businesses crippled, while also increasing recovery time for their operations and systems. Sydney has seen a surge of cyber-attacks over the past few years. Agilient’s Business Continuity Management system back-up recovery and strategies allow New South Wales businesses, services and departments to respond and recover effectively against cyber-attacks.

Agilient’s framework follows four phases:

  • Prepare & Prevent
  • Respond
  • Recover
  • Review & Improve

This allows organisations to understand where their weak points are, along with understanding how to improve on them. To book in with Agilient’s consultants regarding a Business Continuity Management plan contact us.

Emergency Management

New South Wales is always preparing for an emergency situation. And with a situation like 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 Sydney and ensures they survive most emergency scenarios, following industry standards to ensure that the security and practices provided are the optimal emergency management techniques and strategies.

Agilient’s holistic approach to risk mitigation ensures our clients have Business Resilience Programs (BRP) that are dynamic. We continue to evolve and ensure stronger, better prepared and more resilient organisations, based on industry best practice and ISO Standards. For a detailed look into the Business Resilience Program click here. To book an assessment, contact us.

 

Disaster Recovery

Cold winters and blazing summers in New South Wales could cause natural disasters such as the bushfires of 2019, which devastated huge areas around Sydney. Agilient works alongside NSW Government departments and organizations to provide Disaster Recovery Plans that tackle issues that  jeopardise organisations and thier employees. These recovery plans help organisations to assess the risks associated with a natural disaster, and  provide solutions that help Sydney’s 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

There have been surges of cyber-attacks in Sydney recently, which is why 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 New South Wales 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

Yes, we do offer consultation services outside of New South Wales. In fact, Agilient has several offices located across Australia, including Victoria 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 New South Wales, 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 New South Wales 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 Agilient’s consultants will contact you shortly 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.

For more information about booking multiple Emergency Management Planning sessions, contact us at Agilient.

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.
