Cyber Advisors

Manage your company's cybersecurity with confidence.

Why Venari Security? Why now?

Cyber security is an intimidating subject for most business leaders, regardless of industry. Executive teams and board members can find it challenging to understand the technical complexities and manage current and future risks to their organisation.

At times, business leaders significantly overestimate what they know about their internal and external environment and underestimate the uncertainty they must learn to manage.

Cyber security is now a real board issue and has become the number one issue for the C-Suite and board members. The risk associated with breaches can cost organisations hundreds of millions of dollars across data loss, regulatory investigations, business downtime, brand reputation and market capital.

Previously, cyber-attacks were an IT problem, this is a business issue with severe ramifications for executive management and board members if the appropriate controls and policies have not been implemented.

Venari Security's strategic consulting services provide every organisation with bespoke executive solutions that make them resilient to today’s cyber risk.

Our team have held senior positions within G7 governments and global enterprise organisations.

Working with business leaders, our team help organisations assess cyber resilience, improve cyber posture and prepare the C-Suite for potential attacks.
