IT & Cyber Security Audit puts Global Sales Business School in the driving seat.
Q&A with Consalia Director, Ian Helps
D2NA were strongly recommended to us by a current employee who had worked with them in a previous role. When I first met Graham, I was impressed by his professionalism and how he described the D2NA approach – I felt their values were definitely in tune with Consalia’s. Upon meeting the rest of the team, I was reassured that D2NA were the right people for this job. The technical guys knew their stuff and I could tell they were going to do a thorough job. Our initial meetings led me to believe this project would be the start of a successful long-term relationship.
Over the years, we built up our in-house IT support function organically however we had reached a point where we didn’t feel we were being as professional or thorough enough when it came to our IT infrastructure and cyber security. We were aware improvements needed to be made but we didn’t know what they were so we felt we needed knowledgeable professionals to identify these gaps and either fix them or tell us how to.
We now know what we need to do and have clarity on how we go about it which is exactly what we needed. We are currently in talks with D2NA regarding how they can support us with the next steps although this is down to how impressed we were with their skill set and professionalism rather than any obligations.
Absolutely. The Audit is a very robust first step and we would recommend any small to medium enterprise that are moving from their own internal IT support to something more complex to do this. It has given us a real insight into our current setup and unless you are an experienced IT professional, you don’t know what you don’t know!
