Latest News from Oak Consult
Launch of CEOcial Media
After many discussions with our clients and senior managers from across the UK, we have launched CEOcial Media! CEOcial media is a service focussed on the time-poor senior managers and executives of organisations to help them build their social footprint at a time when buyers are starting to change how they short-list suppliers and when decision makers for large purchases are looking beyond a company website. Access to the C-suite, even virtually, and understanding their expertise, values and passions, is becoming part of the shortlisting and decision making process. We work with Executives and Senior Managers to establish a credible social media footprint for themselves and their brands, promoting their organisation and it’s products and services, but also promoting their own personal brands, building credibility with the market, the customers, their prospects and their people.

Launch of Information Security Management Service
Information is the life-blood of every organisation and even more so if your clients have entrusted their valuable data with you. If vital information is lost, corrupted, damaged or stolen, you could be in breach of data protection legislation and at risk of litigation. Furthermore, your business could suffer lasting damage to its reputation. So, if you are responsible for any aspect of your clients’ data, you need to take effective steps to protect their information assets as well as your own.
Implementing and maintaining an Information Security Management System (ISMS) certified to the internationally recognised data security standard ISO 27001 is the most effective way to reduce your risks and assure clients and insurers that security of information is your organisation’s top priority. An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing the security of sensitive information and is designed to identify, manage and reduce the range of threats to which your information is regularly subjected.
At Oak Consult, our information security specialists have the industry experience and know-how to design, develop and implement an ISMS tailored to your organisational needs. With an effective system in place, your business data and operations will be well prepared to resist accidental loss or malicious attack. To find out more click here.
