Below you find some examples of our security consulting activities:
A security roadmap is a planning instrument which defines individual security measures on a timeline of 1 to 3 years.
The security controls may have been defined in a previous risk assessment, penetration test or standard-based security audit (e.g. ISO 27001 or ISO 27002) and need to be scheduled according to their dependencies and prioritization.
We will support you in determining the right selection of security measures based on available resources, priorities, dependencies and cost benefit ratio. Usually, defining the security roadmap involves the following steps:
- Information gathering
- Draft timeline
- Workshop discussion
- Final roadmap
Data protection is a key pillar of IT compliance. Wherever personally identifiable and sensitive information exists (such as salary information, healthcare records, financial transactions), organizations need to make sure they protect such data according to applicable law.
In contrast, information protection deals with data which should be protected based on the organization’s own requirements (for example strategies, pricing models or manufacturing know-how).
Oneconsult has developed a tried and tested method to assess the data and information protection requirements and bring them together to define organizational and technical measures for implementation. Approach is mostly workshop-based.
Most information security standards require specific kind of documentation. For example in ISO 27001 and the respective controls of ISO 27002 (if selected) the following policies are mandatory:
- Information security policy
- Acceptable use policy (acceptable use of assets)
- Information classification policy
- Mobile device policy
- NDA (non-disclosure agreement)
- Clear desk and clear screen policy
Examples of concepts we may help you with in the form of reviews and second opinions are:
- Backup concept
- Incident response concept
- Security operations center (SOC) concept
- Data leakage prevention (DLP) concept
- Network zoning concept
One of our core areas of expertise is IT forensic readiness, which amongst others includes an IT forensics concept or digital forensics guideline.

For definitions of information and IT security terms please refer to our glossary.
A worm is malicious software than can autonomously replicate itself and spread to other computers. Most often the spreading happens using a computer network.
Web Application Security Audit
A web application security audit or web application penetration test evaluates the security level of internet banking systems, online shops, SharePoint platforms, VoIP solutions, etc. The system in scope will usually be examined according to the «OWASP Top 10» security flaws by means of an intensive, unprivileged and privileged manual search for vulnerabilities in the operating system, in the basic services and in the web application itself.
Authorization is the approval, permission, or empowerment for someone or something to do something (SANS Institute).
Information Security Policy
The information security policy constitutes the highest level of all security policies. According to ISO/IEC 27000, a policy describes the "intentions and direction of an organization as formally expressed by its top management". The information security policy (according to ISO/IEC 27001) must support the purpose of the organization and should either include security objectives or provide a framework for establishing these objectives. Furthermore, it must make a commitment for the continual improvement of the ISMS (information security management system). According to the best practices of ISO/IEC 27002, the information security policy should define information security, describe principles for activities relating to information security and contain statements regarding the assignment of responsibilities as well as for handling deviations and exceptions.
IT forensics or digital forensics deals with the investigation and recovery of data on digital devices like computers, mobile phones, memory sticks, usually in the context of a criminal act, with the objective to identify and secure evidence (that could be used in court).
