Service as a Product ("SaaP")

In today's economic climate, when organisations are faced with cutting costs and rising prices, it is difficult to cost-effectively deliver consultancy services to smaller businesses.

Service as A Product (SaaP)
  • Small businesses usually cannot afford the cost of expert consultant engagement.
  • Small businesses do not have the internal resource available to interact fully with an engaged consultant (let alone execute the recommendations).
  • A good consultant costs £850 - £1,500 per day; the smaller client can probably afford, at best, half of this but still wants to know it is getting a quality service.
  • Less expensive consultants have less experience, and cannot be relied on to deliver an adequate quality of service without supervision.
  • Low profitability of smaller clients means that senior management cannot afford to spend much time supervising such delivery. 
  • This tends to put smaller organisations outside the target market for almost every recognised consultancy firm.

IT Governance Ltd, the compliance experts and the one-stop-shop for everything you will need for your information security, business continuity, risk managements and compliance needs, have found a solution to the problem.

The solution is Service as a Product (SaaP).


IT Governance Ltd currently has the following SaaP offerings available:

  • PCI Services

    QSA’s (Qualified Security Assessors) can often be an expensive route to compliance with daily rates starting at as much as £900 a day (and only if you qualify for a reduced rate).  As the smallest QSA contract may take 6- 10 days, this is not always a cost-effective option for the smaller business.

    IT Governance has a wealth of experience within the PCI area and extensive ex-QSA resources to draw on. We can offer you a tailored, cost-effective solution to help you reach compliance as soon as possible.

    It's called PCI Compliance for the Smaller Business and comes complete with everything required for a smaller organisation to self-certify / attest compliance as required by PCI DSS 1.2 - including unlimited expert online support, documentation and approved website scans.

  • FastTrack Certification

    The IT Governance FastTrack ISO27001 Consultancy Service is specifically designed to prepare your organisation for UKAS-accredited certification to ISO27001:2005 in just 3 months. There is a one-off consultancy fee of £5,000 (see below for further fee information).

    The FastTrack ISO27001 Consultancy Service makes certification easy for you. Low-cost, high-speed and with minimal disruption, this unique service removes the need for your organisation to invest significant time, money and effort in researching and acquiring the skill-set necessary to do this all on your own.

    The FastTrack ISO27001 Consultancy Service is specifically designed for organisations that:

    • have 19 employees or fewer, and
    • are based at a single location.
  • Managed Services

    Many organisations need monthly support services to help them remain compliant, and IT Governance offers a fixed-price monthly Information Security Support Agreement that can remove all the headaches that go with ensuring ongoing regulatory compliance and information security.
