We are not your typical Cybersecurity Consultants
Have you noticed that when you visit this kind of page, you leave with a vague notion of what the business is about?
If you take nothing else from this page, know just this;
We are ISO27001 specialists who help you become certified AND secure.
Who We Are
We love what we do and it shows. We have over 55 years experience in Cybersecurity between us, and have worked with small businesses, through to large multinationals... Blah blah blah. You know the deal; We know what we're doing when it comes to ISO27001, Cybersecurity and Data Protection!
But if you're reading this, then what you REALLY want to know is what we're all about... so take a look at our values and see if these match with yours. If they do, then you might like working with Consultants Like Us. If not... we can still help you and show you how to use Google to find someone who can help. 😁
Our Values are central to who we are
No corporate BS here! These are not some empty buzz words dreamt up on a team 'away day'.
Every day we challenge each other to demonstrate;
With our clients and ourselves. If we can't help you, we will tell you. If we're not the right consultants for you, we'll let you know.
We know you want that honesty, and you deserve it.
We are creators and innovators who are willing to challenge the status quo. We see ourselves as a 'product' and look for marginal gains in everything we do. We seek Excellence in everything we do and hold each accountable to it. As Tom Peters says "If Not Excellence, What? If Not Excellence Now, When?" But it's important to say that we also embrace failures, because failing also offers an opportunity to learn.
We share our knowledge generously in and outside our industry because we love what we do! Some have accused us of giving away 'too much', but we don't believe in such a thing. Don't like it? Respectfully, you know where the door is 😁
We care about what we do. We see the difficulties others face, and we want to help.
We care that you're spending hard-earned money on our services, and we want to make sure you get the most value out of it - that's why we're not a 'tick box' consultancy. If you want to do that; Here's a box... enjoy. ⏹️. Feel more secure? No? Thought not.
We care about the people we work with. Our people come first EVERY time, and they and their families are considered when we make business decisions.
Because we care, we are fierce listeners! Listening is central to what we do and central to being a great Consultant.
We want to enjoy what we do. Even though what we do is a serious business, we don't take ourselves too seriously. Life is hard enough without us making it difficult. If it's not fun, you should probably stop doing it.
