Safe Harbor Consulting Overview

We provide Safe Harbor consulting and implementation support.

What is the approach for successful implementation?

There are primarily five phases, and in each phase there can be several sub-phases:

Phase I – Scope determination
that part of the organisation/network which needs to be covered which needs control prioritization.

Phase II – Asset identification/Risk Assessment/Gap Analysis
risk assessment is key to determine the scope of infrastructure and the requirement for controls. This phase results in identification of each gap.

Phase III - Implementation
through definition of policy/procedure/documentation and relevant people/process/technology records.

Phase IV – Internal Audit
is the process of verifying successful implementation, on one hand, and the inclusion of security principle in business lifecycle on the other.

Phase V – Safe Harbor certification
Total duration of each milestone can vary depending upon the complexity of the organisation. Talk or write to us at to know how we can take you through a successful journey.
