Passionate about information risk, security and all that - protecting and enhancing the value of information in all forms (not just the IT systems, networks and data!).
Business risk oriented - rather than pushing generic best practices, I would much rather help you figure out what is best for you, your organisation, your business.
Professional and experienced - practicing in this field continuously since the 1980’s, with information security, IT audit and management qualifications.
Client-focused - in order to add real value, I need to find out about your unique situation and explore your objectives both initially and during assignments.
An advocate of ISO27k and similar frameworks where appropriate, subject always to your situation, your business, your information risks ...
Founded on pragmatism - tempering theory with practicality and flexibility, finding cost-effective, realistic yet creative solutions to genuine business issues.
Trustworthy, of course. Integrity is a deep-rooted core value. We do the right things, and do things right. When we promise or commit to something, we deliver.
A micro-business - with the personal touch. we rarely engage more than one client at a time, allowing me to focus exclusively on the matter at hand.
Keen - to help you surmount difficult challenges, responding to your particular needs. Whether you need a little advice and guidance, or a partner for a longer term engagement, I’ll happily fit in with your requirements.
Open - we provide intemised invoices to account for our time. We don’t charge a minimum or retainer: you will only be charged for the actual hours/days worked.
Cost-effective - this no-frills website helps keep our overheads and hence prices down. We’d much rather spend on providing top-quality client services.
Sustainable - caring deeply about the natural environment, a lifestyle block in rural New Zealand is an ideal home office location. Ask me about the trees, goats and deer!
