IT Security Assessment

Conduct an independent cyber security risk assessment of your IT security systems and practices to identify any risks and areas of weakness. Our managed security specialists will undertake a thorough review of your IT systems and infrastructure and provide you with a detailed action report full of recommendations and actionable priorities.

Independent Security Review

Many organisations outsource IT security reviews from their internal IT department to provide independent analysis and testing of their security environment.

As a leading MSP, First Focus has enormous first-hand experience in preventing and remediating security breaches across our 250 strong client base and 30,000 end-users.

Our NIST-based security assessment can be requested as a stand-alone Professional Service to provide clear directions for improving an organisation’s cybersecurity posture. Remediation can be implemented by our security team, internally, or by your preferred IT service provider.

CI Australia started working with First Focus in 2019. We were looking for an MSP that could deliver increased service quality with pricing that matched our budget. First Focus was originally in our top three preferred providers. What really helped them stand out was their proposal – there was no over- or under-scoping – and their reputation for good people and services.
