Both public and private sector organisations are at risk of being compromised by a host of malicious cyber actors. We work with local, state and federal government agencies and departments to secure information and critical process. Our goal as a trusted cyber security partner is to enhance cyber resilience through strategic defence and protect Australian society and critical assets from advanced threats.
Below are some of the most concerning cyber threats to government:
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) require continuous, sophisticated hacking techniques. These attacks are designed be clandestine and typically go undetected for extended periods of time. They are performed by state-sponsored cyber-actors who seek to cause major disruption to high value targets such as government agencies.
Ransomware (like other malware variants) is a growing concern across all industries. This can be owed to the marked increase in its global popularity and the severity of these attacks. Ransomware encrypts files and makes devices inoperative. It can cripple operations for weeks and have devastating effects on government agencies and local councils.
This is the leading source of malicious attacks across industries, with credential compromise as the ultimate goal. Government employees and administrative staff working in departments such as finance and human resources are often the victim of targeted phishing attacks. If a cyber criminal gets ahold of their credentials, it could mean total compromise.
Our team of security specialists has a wealth of industry expertise, with over 20 years of experience in information security and involvement with all levels of government. We are the leading security advisory firm to a variety of government departments, securing the integrity, confidentiality and availability of their vital services. We are committed to providing our government clients with the local Australian skills and resources needed to secure the nation from the council level up.

Ethical hacking is our passion. During penetration tests our experts simulate real attacks on your environment to disclose hidden weaknesses that real attackers seek to exploit. We then provide a prioritised and actionable report with recommendations for improvement. This is a vital part of staying on top of evolving threat and we also offer more in-depth red teaming services.Read more
