Our approach


We work according to the three-pillar approach to information/cyber security. The first two pillars are ‘people’ and ‘processes’, The last pillar is ‘technology’.




These three pillars are the common thread in the SWITCH Six Steps methodology, the interplay of methods, procedures and practices that we follow when executing projects for our clients:

1. Pre-scan

  • Making a blueprint of the current situation
  • Determining the target levels per framework domain (ISO, NIST, CIS, etc)
  • Reporting the total overview (radar spiderweb diagram)

  • Executing vulnerability scans and possibly penetration testing
  • Issuing an advice note and making a proposal for an improvement plan

2. Project definition

  • Define scope, budget and timeline
