Independent Information Assurance Advice

As an independent Information Assurance expert, I am not tied to offering you any particular solution or product. Instead of attempting to fit your needs around a limited range of fixes, my independence leaves me completely free to create a solution that is an exact match to your requirements. I am always fully up to date on matters of Information Assurance, from UK Government Accreditation requirements, through to the kinds of Cyber Security issues you might see reported in the media.

Sounds good? See what I can do for you, or find out about my work as a CLAS consultant.
