Critical Infrastructure

At Connley Walker, our specialised focus on assisting organisations classified as critical infrastructure underscores our commitment to ensuring the security and resilience of vital sectors as mandated by the Australian Government. Recognising the elevated security obligations and requirements placed upon critical infrastructure entities, our dedicated team of experts brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to bear on the unique challenges and risks inherent in these sectors. Our comprehensive services go beyond mere compliance, aiming to fortify the security posture of critical infrastructure organisations and enhance their overall resilience in the face of evolving threats.

Our approach to assisting critical infrastructure organisations is characterised by a deep understanding of the sector-specific nuances and intricacies. We recognise that these entities operate within highly regulated and sensitive environments, where the consequences of security lapses can have far-reaching impacts. Through a consultative and collaborative process, our team engages closely with organisations to gain profound insights into their operational landscapes, risk profiles, and compliance needs.

Our Services

  • Security Risk Assessments: We conduct thorough security risk assessments to identify vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and potential threats specific to critical infrastructure. Our assessments encompass physical security measures, access controls, surveillance systems, perimeter protection, and more. We also evaluate operational processes, personnel security, and information handling practices to provide a holistic understanding of the security landscape.
  • Security Planning and Design: We assist critical infrastructure organisations in developing robust security plans and designs tailored to their unique needs. Our experts collaborate closely with stakeholders to identify critical assets, establish security zones, and define protective measures. We consider factors such as operational requirements, regulatory frameworks, and stakeholder interests to ensure the security measures are comprehensive and effective.
  • Compliance with Government Regulations: We help organisations navigate the complex landscape of government regulations and requirements applicable to critical infrastructure sectors. Our experts stay up-to-date with the latest regulations and ensure that organisations are compliant with relevant laws, standards, and guidelines. We provide guidance on developing security frameworks, implementing necessary controls, and reporting requirements.
  • Emergency Management Planning: We assist organisations in developing comprehensive emergency management plans to address potential threats and disruptions. Our experts collaborate with stakeholders to establish crisis management frameworks, define communication strategies, and conduct scenario-based exercises. We ensure critical infrastructure organisations are prepared to respond effectively to emergencies and minimize the impact on operations.
  • Security Training and Awareness: We provide customised security training and awareness programs tailored to the needs of critical infrastructure organisations. Our programs enhance the knowledge and skills of personnel, ensuring they understand their roles and responsibilities in maintaining a secure environment. We cover topics such as threat recognition, incident response, and security best practices.
  • Third-Party Security Provider Evaluation: We assist organisations in evaluating and selecting third-party security providers to ensure they meet the necessary security requirements.
