The City of London Police (CoLP) has selected APMG’s Cyber Defence Capability Assessment Tool (CDCAT) as part of its Cyber Griffin initiative to help businesses in the City of London protect themselves from cybercrime

As UK Policing Lead for Economic Crime and Cyber Reporting, CoLP set up Cyber Griffin, where experienced officers work closely with businesses in the City of London to increase awareness and knowledge of cybercrime. Cyber Griffin also provides advice on current trend threats, cyber plans and business continuity.

As part of its objective to make the City of London the safest city in the world, CoLP use CDCAT to help businesses review and improve their cyber plan against industry relevant standards, frameworks and strategies such as ISO 27001, NIST CSF, Cyber Essentials PLUS, GDPR and PCI-DSS.

Sergeant Charlie Morrison, CoLP, said: “We use CDCAT to fully assess an organisation’s current cyber defences and controls; highlighting any capability vulnerabilities. Our team of experienced officers provide tailored advice and actionable reports through one-to-one consultation. As we regularly work with multi-national organisations, CDCAT helps us rapidly map to a wide range of international standards and frameworks and highlight those most familiar to the client.”

Nick Houlton, Chief Operating Officer, The APM Group, said: “Cyber Griffin showcases what can be achieved through a close working partnership with local businesses and citizens. The dedicated team of officers are uniquely positioned to share meaningful insight into cybercrime and how to best to protect against it. APMG is proud CDCAT is a key part of this work.”

All CDCAT assessments include actionable, bespoke reports. CoLP officers can help your business create an action plan that properly protects, meets regulatory requirements and enables your cyber strategy within a realistic time frame.
