Why you need us
Whether you are an MOD department or a supplier to the MOD, your project or programme will need to identify and manage information risks—particularly in light of the new UK Government Cyber Security Strategy and the MOD’s Cyber Security Model.
How we help you
Every day, Ascentor provides support and guidance to public sector organisations and departments that have very high value and sensitive information assets. We cover a variety of Information Assurance (IA) disciplines including risk assessment, risk treatment, audit, accreditation, project assurance, building information modelling (BIM), business continuity and disaster recovery.
With our unique IA Inside approach, we can help the MOD assess and specify its information risks, and ensure they are handled in accordance with JSP440 and to the satisfaction of the accreditor. We can help MOD suppliers strengthen information and cyber security in relation to their own businesses (by helping with List X status, Cyber Essentials, the Cyber Security Model and IASME or ISO27001) and the projects they are bidding for and delivering with hands-on IA support.
Why choose us
Founded and run by ex-military IA and accreditation experts, Ascentor has focused on satisfying the information security needs of MOD and other HMG departments for 12 years. Now a ten-strong team, Ascentor has almost a century of collective IA knowledge.
We have worked continuously with the MOD for the past eight years. The Ascentor team brings deep understanding of the operational landscape and the importance of IA and accreditation in MOD projects and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems. Our work has covered Urgent Operational Requirements (UOR), Equipment Programme (EP) and UOR to Core projects. This knowledge and experience means we have the capability to address different types and sizes of project, with the added value of understanding the impact of our work in theatre.
