About the Safety Check
You, as the business, are delivered a three-category report with recommendations informed by an audit to improve your digital security posture. You will receive the report in PDF which you can view on your desktop or annotate using a tablet.
The report uses your current day-to-day practices as baseline. This package is best used by individuals or entrepreneurs who seek foundational guidance for improving resilience to business risk rooted modern digital tools and cyber threats.
The audit covers authentication, backups, and incident plans at a basic level. You will receive an assessment of your current practices. You will also receive actionable tips, rooted in behavioural change strategies, for changes to improve security and resilience. These tips can mostly be implemented at an individual level.
You can use this report to prevent financial and reputation loss by raising the bar for security behaviours in your organization.
We perform the Safety Check using information collected from you, the business, through an interview. The default interview method, included in the base price, is a questionnaire. An add-on to the project lets clients substitute with a 30-minute call where the interview is done in real-time.

Frequently asked questions
Q: Why a questionnaire?
You, as the client, can take the time to think and answer. Often, real-time interviews don't surface the depth of information necessary for a thorough security audit.
Q: How long would it take me to complete the interview using the questionnaire?
We find that the required questionnaire can be thoroughly completed in 20 to 25 minutes on average. The optional questionnaire (highly recommended as it allows us to make additional recommendations, at no additional charge to you) can take about 15 mins.
Q: Why still offer a real-time interview option?
You may strongly prefer to communicate in real-time. Certain clients do.
Q: Why does a real-time interview take an extra 7 days to deliver?
Real-time interviews require additional time to allow for us to schedule, and extra time on my part to make accurate notes of your responses and verify that information with you.
Q: Is it enough that I complete the questionnaire, or do all my employees also need to do it?
It depends. In most cases with small businesses, it's enough that the owner completes the questionnaire as they tend to set practices business-wide. However, what do your employees have access to? Do you provide devices for them or do they use their own? Describe the situation in the request package form and we can sort it out.
