SYDNEY, Australia – 29 November 2023: Sekuro, the cyber security and digital resiliency provider, today announced its expansion into the UK market, providing consulting services to UK-based organisations expanding their footprint into the Australian market.
The initial focus of the expansion will be leveraging Sekuro’s deep expertise of the Australian regulatory landscape to offer Infosec Registered Assessor Program (IRAP) assessments, which can help organisations to identify and address security risks, improve security posture, and gain a competitive advantage for organisations that handle sensitive government or industry data.
Sekuro is one of the most experienced and respected IRAP Assessors in Australia, having worked with the likes of Objective Corporation and Aspen Medical, as well as global organisations such as Cisco Inc., and Dynatrace Inc..
Calum McNab has relocated from Sydney and has been appointed as the new Head of UK for Sekuro tasked with market entry and growth.
Calum McNab, commented: “Australia and the UK have a long and strong relationship, which has been further strengthened by the recent Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement (AUKFTA) and beyond that AUKUS, the trilateral security partnership between Australia, the U.K., and the U.S.A. By fostering a stable and secure environment for trade and investment, UK organisations recognise the opportunity to enter into Australia but need to meet Australia’s specific compliance requirements.”
“This is particularly critical for organisations seeking to do business with the Australian Government and as such we have created a ‘Gateway Australia’ program that provides a comprehensive range of services to help all businesses navigate and meet Australia’s unique compliance legislation.” concluded McNab.
Sekuro’s Gateway Australia program has been developed to accelerate paths to new markets for International organisations looking to enter Australia. The service includes an assessment of a company’s current cyber security status and helps businesses acquire necessary security certifications including IRAP.
The recent release of the Australian Government’s ‘2023-2030 Australian Cyber Security Strategy’ highlights the sentiment behind the Gateway Australia program, with the emphasis being placed on Australian businesses to manage their cyber environment and better protect citizens.
Locally, demand for cyber security services is ongoing and robust. Sekuro has experienced this trend first-hand, leading to 44% organic revenue growth in FY22. This growth trajectory is anticipated to continue, with recent innovations including the Zero Trust Strategy and new subscription-based Cyber Resilience Program attracting new clients.
Noel Allnutt, CEO of Sekuro said: “As an Australian-founded and grown industry innovator, Sekuro has successfully demonstrated the demand for its services in Australia. It’s clear that Sekuro, and the broader cyber industry for that matter, are on their own unique growth trajectory. This has seen our customer base and service offerings grow rapidly, with our sights now set on strengthening our relationships both locally and globally.”
As a result of the increased impact, more government agencies and businesses of all sizes are setting higher security and privacy standards for themselves and the organisations they interact with. Sekuro’s focus on helping CIOs and CISOs build business resiliency by reducing cyber risk while new technologies are adopted, well-positions it to help local businesses improve their cyber security posture whilst also supporting international firms in their entry and expansion into Australia.
Sekuro is a cyber security and digital resiliency solutions provider that helps CIOs and CISOs take a strategic approach to cyber security risk mitigation and digital transformation. Operating at the intersection of the digital technologies and cyber security industries, Sekuro reduces cyber risk while new technologies are adopted – ultimately building business resiliency and enabling fearless innovation.
