Local Government & Public Services

In its role as London’s public sector WARP, the ISfL membership is made up of representatives from all of London’s 32 boroughs plus the City of London Corporation. We also have the London Fire Brigade as a member and at one time or another have had representatives from Transport for London and the London Ambulance Service.

IA Advisors

One of the benefits of ISfL membership is the access to IA advice that it brings. The London WARP has engaged a number of IA consultancies to work with us. This ensures that we have a pool of advisors each with different areas of expertise. This puts members in a very strong position when expert advice is needed.

Our advisors include:

Aristi provides independent information security consultancy to public and private sector organisations to help in the identification and management of information risks. Their approach is based on experience and expertise of real world business problems and delivery of pragmatic, appropriate and cost effective solutions. Aristi have many years of experience in providing Information Assurance (IA) services to central government departments, local authorities, emergency services and private sector organisations.
Their core services include:

  • CLAS Consultancy
  • PSN Consultancy
  • IT Health Checks
  • ISO/IEC 27,001 Compliance
  • Trusted Security Advisor Services
  • Security Awareness & IA Training

Central Government

ISfL (originally the London Connects WARP or LCWARP) was born out of a joint venture between central and local government. As a result, the group has always enjoyed good engagement with various different central government departments and agencies. These include the Cabinet Office, CPNI, CESG and GCHQ and the relationship that we have with them ensures that the group is always well informed. ISfL is often the first group to work with central government on new IA initiatives.
