Auditing and Consulting

There are two distinct components to auditing and consulting: the preventive element and the post-incident division. ‘Preventive’ is concerned withg analysis of a company’s potential exposure to security breaches and aims to ensure that incidents do not occur. Meanwhile, ‘post-incident’ is concerned with assessing realized security incidents and revealing flaws in the existing security system. Companies use this information to reinforce their IT security provision.


The auditing and consulting services offered by DSS are among the best in the world. Experts are on hand to assess not only internal threats but also external threats. Based on these findings, it is then possible to enhance the company’s IT security measures in a manner conducive to the company’s specific business processes.

Financial services workers and IT security.

In response to increased concerns about the threat posed by online banking fraud, DSS consultants have designed an IT security architecture specifically for those working in financial services. Many of the threats in this area stem from ill-suited security systems and a lack of awareness of the problem among employees. DSS’s architecture can be deployed either in isolation or as part of a pre-existing security system. Crucially, this package incorporates an educational element, teaching finance employees about the nature of online fraud. This is important because it improves employees’ abilities to detect threats and respond accordingly.
