Your IT Governance,
Risk Management and Cybersecurity Partner

Success depends on executing a winning strategy

Many organisations struggle to find balance between accomplishing business goals and effectively managing information security and technology risks.

We work to understand your capabilities and design responses in cybersecurity, risk, and IT governance which provide effective and enduring solutions.

We help you find the inflection point between risk and opportunity.

Our services

Information Security

We offer information security services which look beyond simple compliance obligations to make sure cybersecurity achieves business objectives. We accomplish this by integrating security standards – ISO 27001, NIST and COBIT – within your operational structures. Our “On-a-Page” approach ensures security is adopted at all levels and embedded as a business norm.

Technology Risk Management

We help your organisation to develop an effective approach focused on both the opportunity and cost of risk. We have extensive experience in performing risk and control assessments, and can help you identify the most practical approach to managing end-to-end technology risks for your business. We examine your full technology landscape, not just cyber security risks.

Technology Assurance

Technology assurance capabilities are key to achieving value from your technology investment. We help organisations to focus on positive conformance gains, rather than the negatives of box-ticking assurance. We support you throughout the improvement cycle – guiding you on how to track improvements from identification to operation, measurement and closure.
