Cyber Security Partners (CSP) have a new service to assist organisations in being secure, compliant and protected against cyber threats that can have detrimental affects on a business. So, what is a Cyber MOT?
Cyber MOT Service
Cyber Security Partner’s ‘Cyber MOT’ service, is a high-level overview of an organisation’s security posture and IT Systems. This includes analysing the areas that can affect the IT and Cyber Security of an organisation, such as; personnel and physical elements.
Areas covered in a Cyber MOT review include; Employee Awareness, IT Environment, Security of Data, Device Security/BYOD, Software Vetting, Policies, Passwords, Physical Security, Employee Security and Ongoing Security. All these areas play a key part in an organisation’s security posture.
So, how is it carried out? The Cyber MOT service is split into two parts:
The first part is an interview process, the cyber security professional will interview relevant staff members on the areas mentioned above.
The responses will then be used to produce a report that includes the responses from the staff members who were interviewed. These will then be marked either red, amber or green. This will determine whether the response was a pass, pass with action recommended and fail with actions needed.
Then the report will be sent out to the customer for review.

Any customers who use this service from CSP, will have confidence in knowing that their security posture has been assessed and reviewed thoroughly and any potential issues will have been raised with them.
