Cybersecurity Simplified

Our goal is to offer a simplified approach to Cybersecurity, giving customers comfort that their exposure to the threat of becoming a victim to a cyber incident is dramatically reduced. According to the IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index Report, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by some form of human error. An incredible 91% of cyber-attacks begin with a phishing email to an unsuspecting victim. In the 2023 State of Email Security Survey, 97% of organizations claim to have been targeted by phishing attacks.

With this in mind, our approach begins by recognizing the importance of the human factor and developing solutions that solve these issues by focusing on the critical areas known for posing the greatest risk;


Endpoint security refers to the cybersecurity strategy employed to safeguard endpoints, including desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, from malicious activities and threats. Endpoint security is a cornerstone to cyber security and comes in many shapes and sizes. We help by offering simple and affordable solutions that can grow with you.


Given its position as the number 1 attack vector, email protection is essential to safeguard your organisation against sophisticated, multi-stage attacks. We configure tools to proactively keep ahead of evolving threats and minimise the chance of human error playing a part in you becoming a victim to a cyber-attack.


Vulnerability management involves a continuous and systematic approach to identifying, evaluating, reporting, managing, and remediating cyber vulnerabilities present in your applications and network. We take a risk-based prioritisation approach allowing for a logical order in which to tackle your to-do list, keeping risk exposure at an all time low.


With human error being the most likely point of initiation of a cyber-attack it makes sense that cybersecurity awareness should be a focus. Using a combination of minutes long, bite sized training sessions along with phishing simulations, all designed to drive changes in behaviour, we ensure that awareness remains front of mind and human error is dramatically reduced.

The Three Pillars to Success

While we take a Human Centric approach, establishing an effective and robust cybersecurity stance necessitates a system founded on three fundamental pillars. People, Processes and Technology.


People: The Human Factor upon which we structure our approach. People are your biggest risk, but also offer you the opportunity to drive your greatest shift in security posture by honing their skills to minimise your risk.

Process: The way in which you manage your internal policy and procedural driven approach to how people use all of the technological elements of your business that expose you to risk.

Technology: This is what we build around the people to drive improved behaviour, reduced risk and promote ongoing awareness.

Each pillar is as important as the next. We cannot shift the balance on one without tweaking the balance on the remaining two.

With our Human Centric approach, we cover the People and Technology components of the Three Pillars by default. We incorporate Process using the Australian Cyber Security Centre's (ACSC) Essential 8 Framework.

The ACSC Essential 8 Framework is a comprehensive cybersecurity guideline developed by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) to help organisations strengthen their defense against cyber threats. It provides a strategic framework consisting of eight key mitigation strategies that organisations should prioritise and implement to improve their overall cybersecurity posture.

The Essential 8 Framework encompasses a range of proactive and reactive security controls that focus on key areas of cyber security. They include:

1. Application Whitelisting

2. Patching Applications

3. Configuring Microsoft Office Macro Settings

4. User Application Hardening

5. Restricting Administrative Privileges

6. Patching Operating Systems

7. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

8. Daily Backups

The Australian Signals Directorate have stated that implementing the Top 4 mitigation strategies can assist in preventing over 85% of unauthorised intrusions.
