Cyber Security Auditing, Compliance, and Regulation


Policies and procedures are one of your best defences against cyber-attack.

But they also protect you from regulatory enforcement, keeping you compliant with the rules relevant to your business, industry, and geography.

Building a cyber security strategy that includes defence and compliance, without hampering your operations or objectives, is an essential undertaking for the modern business. Our compliance services can keep you one step ahead on all fronts – as well as preparing you for audits and assessments, supporting cyber insurance purchases, and attaining accreditations and certifications.

Finding a partner who understands the accreditation standards, audit process, and potential pitfalls when it comes to cyber security regulation (and a partner with the breadth of expertise to apply it to your industry) is a difficult ask.


When it comes to compliance, understanding the rules is only the beginning. Keeping abreast of upcoming changes, developing relationships with regulatory bodies, and learning from past processes are important benefits that you’ll only find with an experienced partner.


Accreditations are usually time-bound and expire annually. Finding a partner who can assist with the required pre-audits, gap analysis, remedial activity, and then assist with the actual re-accreditation audit – all within the required timescale – can be a challenge.


As well as working towards specific and time-sensitive objectives, you must maintain your security processes and procedures. Staying compliant and staying protected is part of your BAU service operations, so you’ll need a strong relationship with a good partner who you’re happy to work with regularly.


You may have certain compliance requirements, sector-specific standards, or unique technologies that you must use. Finding an expert partner with the right combination of insight and understanding to support you in niche operations can be difficult to find and expensive to retain.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.

Risk management

Cyber security is an industry heavily reliant on partnerships. Regulatory bodies are clamping down on the responsibility gap in third-party relationships, which means organisations must ensure that their vendors and service providers meet the same cyber standards as they do themselves.

AI-powered monitoring

As cyber threats become more sophisticated, and regulations get stricter, many organisations are turning to AI to track, monitor, and report on their security posture in real-time – helping them identify and address compliance issues quickly and efficiently.

ISO 27001

The long-awaited ISO 27001:2022 standard has been released and has brought with it a raft of changes. 57 controls have been merged, 23 renamed, and another 11 introduced for the first time. As is often the case with compliance, organisations must act quickly even when changes have been a long time coming.

our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.

Frequently Asked Questions

To understand our Compliance & Auditing services, or ask any questions that we haven’t answered, please get in touch.

What is cyber security compliance?

Just like in any other industry, compliance in cyber security is the process of implementing policies to ensure that you’re obeying the rules and regulations in your industry. In cyber security, these are commonly about data protection, access control, and incident response.

What’s the difference between cyber security and cyber compliance?

Many of their requirements go together, because staying compliant also means having robust security in place, but not every regulatory requirement will be obvious, and you may need to be aware of extra expectations.

What is a CISO?

A CISO, or Chief Information Security Officer, is often the most senior person responsible for cyber security in an organisation. It’s a relatively new addition to the C-suite and it takes some responsibility away from the CTO to focus specifically on cyber safety and compliance.

What happens if I’m not cyber compliant?

Penalties depend on the regulation and severity of non-compliance, but can include fines, sanctions, closures, and prosecutions.
