We are an optimistic cyber security consultancy of experts in security, data, technology and design that want to build a safer, more secure world where more things go right.

Positive security

We believe that good cyber security:

  • starts with a deep and thorough understanding of how your organisation works
  • provides the strongest protection for the most important things
  • responds and adapts to people's needs

Rather than comparing your setup against checklists of known threats and common solutions, we work hard to properly understand your business. We always start with the question "What do you need to protect?" and work our way forward from there.

Our services meet your needs

We typically work with clients — like CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, plus CEOs and NEDs — over longer periods of time to deliver real and measurable outcomes, rather than one-off deliverables.

Below are a few examples of the problems you may be facing, and how we can help, but it is not exhaustive. Check out our range of cyber consulting services, or you can pick your favourite way to get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your individual needs.
