Risk advisory services for technology companies

Our licensed investigators work under the strictest confidentiality, and deliver practical mitigation strategies that align with your governance and risk frameworks.

Where you are dealing with a whistleblower or a definite policy breach, we can assist with:

  • reviewing data and documentation
  • tracing funds and assets
  • interviewing persons of interest or witnesses
  • liaising with law enforcement
  • findings reports and recommendations
  • recovery avenues

We use the latest forensic technology to investigate everything from fraud and corruption to data breaches, security incidents, ethics breaches, money laundering, and more.

Cyber security and resilience

While some ICT companies are at the forefront of data security, others have little experience in this space and require the assistance of a skilled third-party to help identify cyber risks and boost resilience. Even those with internal expertise still require independent assurance over their information security to comply with regulatory requirements like APRA CPS 234 or Consumer Data Right (CDR), and to demonstrate the implementation of controls with reports such as SOC 1, SOC 2, ASAE 3402 or ASAE 3150.

Cyber security

Working with your internal team or as a trusted outsourced solution, we can enhance your risk posture and keep you a step ahead of the most advanced cyber threats as they evolve.

Contact us for:

  • Security transformation
  • Digital forensics and incident response
  • Vulnerability assessments and penetration testing
  • Cloud security
  • Information and data privacy
  • IT audits

Data analytics

Untapped data is a risk to your business because it impedes your ability to uncover risks, and leads to lost opportunities and poor customer experiences.

data analytics

Lack of sufficient data can also be a compliance risk if you’re unable to provide accurate reports to regulators.

Our data experts can assist you with:

  • data governance
  • data analytics
  • business process improvements
  • compliance auditing and assurance

We can show you how to start mining and leveraging your data to be more efficient, reduce unnecessary spend, and improve service delivery for staff and customers.
