Lutech Advisory services
Our portfolio of professional advisory services meets the requirements imposed by the new multi-cloud paradigms, cybersecurity and compliance at all levels, thanks to a flexible and personalized approach and multidisciplinary expertise. Overall, our advisory services offer a holistic vision of the client company which starts from its business requirements and outputs organizational, procedural and technological solutions, in accordance with phases and methods defined and shared with the client:
Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the client’s business goals and requirements
Design & Build: Design and planning of organizational, procedural and support solutions for the technological choices, application of the IT, cloud transformation, cybersecurity, governance and compliance processes, with supervision of the technological implementation
Optimization: Continuous support services and optimization of the IT, cloud transformation, cybersecurity, governance and compliance processes, in alignment with the business requirements
The main goal of this range of services is to analyze the client’s requirements and assess their goals in order to direct the most appropriate strategic improvement plans.
Hybrid & Multi-cloud Readiness Assessment: A service involving analysis of the organizational structure, operations and technologies used by the client; its goal is to assess the organizational and procedural effort and the technological impacts of a potential migration to a multi-cloud environment. The assessment is constructed through a series of elements which allow an in-depth multi-dimensional analysis to be performed on the current level of preparedness for migration.
Multi-cloud Impact Analysis: Mapping of the dependencies between the existing technologies, the business processes and the services in order to define the extent to which the corporate processes can be ported to the cloud with an appropriate level of confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience. The activity is performed through a series of methodological steps which, by inputting the existing organizational, procedural and technological elements, allow the drafting of a developmental multi-cloud adoption roadmap towards an optimized model in line with the client’s actual requirements.
Multi-cloud cost comparison (ROI and TCO): Assessment and comparison of the costs of different developmental digital transformation scenarios. Comparison between on-premises digital transformation projects and multi-cloud scenarios. Standard indices are compared, such as the return achievable in relation to the amount of the initial investment (ROI), or the projected costs borne for the purchase, commissioning, use and decommissioning of a service (TCO).
Cybersecurity Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the client’s cybersecurity management system. Verification of technological, organizational and procedural elements, both in on-prem and multi-cloud environments. Definition of a strategic plan to reach appropriate levels of maturity in the management of the client’s security, taking into account their business sector.
Compliance Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the client’s compliance management system. Verification of technological, organizational and procedural elements, both in on-prem and multi-cloud environments. Definition of a strategic plan to attain appropriate levels of client compliance in relation to the applicable laws, regulations and/or standards (e.g.: GDPR).
Internal SOC and/or Incident Handling Process Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the client’s Security Operations Center, or more specifically of their cybersecurity incident management system. Verification of technological, organizational and procedural elements. Definition of a strategic plan to increase the level of maturity of the SOC and to optimize the client’s security incident management system, taking into account their sector and the applicable regulations (e.g.: data breaches, GDPR).
Integrated Risk Analysis: Application of the integrated risk analysis methodology supplied by Lutech, or the client’s proprietary version, for identification, analysis and support in the assessment of risks relating to information security (ref. ISO 27001), quality (ref. ISO 9001), workplace health and safety (ref. ISO 45001) and the environment (ref. ISO 14001).
Business Impact Analysis: An activity which falls under the scope of business continuity and application of corporate recovery or continuity strategies. BIA allows an assessment of the losses (qualitative and quantitative) to an organization’s business following a prolonged interruption to their essential services. It therefore represents the main input to the management of corporate operational continuity for the definition of a composite strategy (people, process, technology) which is able to optimize costs and minimize losses, identifying the best technological solution in line with the express requirements of the business.
IoT and/or Industrial Security Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the security management system applied to Internet Of Things scenarios or relating to the client’s industrial systems. Verification of technological, organizational and procedural elements. Definition of a strategic plan to reach appropriate levels of maturity in the management of the client’s security and compliance (e.g. NIS) in IoT and OT environments.
Supply Chain Contract Assessment: Analysis and assessment of the client’s IT supply contracts. Checks on the organizational, procedural and supervisory elements of existing contracts or those under negotiation with cloud service providers, outsourcers or suppliers of facility and application management services. Definition of a strategic plan for optimization of the organization and processes to plug any gaps found during the analysis.
Cyber attack simulations: Ethical Hacking or white-hat activities with the goal of checking the level of security of systems, applications and entire on-prem and multi-cloud infrastructures, even in vertical environments such as IoT platforms and industrial networks. These activities allow the identification of potential vulnerabilities within the perimeter of analysis which could be exploited by malicious, or black-hat, hackers to compromise the confidentiality and integrity of information or the availability of strategic assets. The main goal is to define a strategic plan to fix any vulnerabilities identified (patching, hardening, upgrading) in order to achieve sufficient levels of security and protection.
Design & Build
The goals of these categories of advisory services are the identification, design and implementation of organizational and procedural solutions which are effective and useful in terms of attaining the client’s security and compliance goals.

This service involves the definition and implementation of all technological, organizational and procedural elements which, overall, allow high levels of corporate security to be achieved. This occurs through the preparation of an SOC services catalogue customized by industry and the organic implementation of a series of cybersecurity management processes able to prevent and detect advanced threats and to respond to any remote attacks.
Asset Inventory & Information Classification: Service for the formalization of documents (operating procedures and policies), definition of processes and implementation of systems for the classification and labelling of corporate information.
Secure build & system hardening: Service for defining the vulnerability management processes and application of security standards (e.g.: CIS, NIST) to reduce the attack cross-section of systems, databases, applications and network devices, whether these are in traditional on-prem environments or are multi-cloud hosted.
IoT and/or Industrial Security Framework definition: design and implementation of a security framework structured over IoT or OT environments. The goal of this type of service is to create a summary of the international security guidelines and standards (CIS, NIST, ENISA) and customize them for the client’s environments. The framework, once consolidated, allows the appropriate risk analyses to be performed and the most suitable countermeasures to reduce these chosen (risk treatment).
