Acuity Risk Management

A Practical Guide to implementing ‘Secure by Design’

Secure by Design is a new initiative from the UK Government, aimed at bolstering digital security. Its core mission is to empower organisations with a standardised approach to secure digital services. It’s not just a government priority; it’s a mandate for commercial organisations, including critical national infrastructure and third-party entities.

Acuity’s in-depth whitepaper delves into the practical aspects of implementing Secure by Design, emphasising the criticality of a flexible and responsive understanding of the interplay between security threats and controls. It guides us on maintaining ‘always-on’ visibility of risk status compared to risk appetite throughout the entire lifecycle of digital services.

If you’d like more information on how Acuity and STREAM can not only help you with Secure by Design, but also with implementing and maintaining a cyber security management system that improves your confidence – and that of regulators, customers, and suppliers – in your ability to protect and prevent against cyber attacks, you can contact us here, or via email at
