Consulting

"Over years of offensive, defensive and recovery cyber operations I have identified two seemingly conflicting statements that hold true.

The first is that a huge percentage of what organisations need to do to be secure (the practices, learnings, policies, technologies) are astoundingly similar, and yet organisations go on journeys to reinvent solutions to known problems or threats. Despite variant threat models the core of much of cyber security is very similar, and that leaves many organisations with huge opportunities to more cost effectively and pragmatically level up.

The second is that sometimes businesses are unique and their security problems too – perhaps the right architectural approach to a new leading application, a specific threat actor targeting you, or threat modelling against ML abuses.

I love that our consultants are able to bring unique thinking, solutions and research but can also help organisations learn from the mistakes of others. They are not a standard consulting team billing hours, moving through the process – they want to help you solve security challenges."

Tabletop Exercises

We can design and run hands-on exercises in real-world environments to prepare your team and wider organisation to deal with the ever-increasing complexity of the world in which we all operate.

CISO for a Day
