Our team are able to deliver Cyber Audits and risk assessments across Victoria and Australia.
Depending on the size of your organisation and needs we assign between 1-10 team members.
We take care that you understand our purpose and where there are gaps in your organisation which are leaving you vulnerable we will make recommendations and should you so instruct, implement them, to increase your Cy resilience.
We take a lifecycle approach to your organisation's health and will recommend a smaller 'check up' in 6 to 12 months depending on your needs and size.
Our audits are completely customisable to your needs, assets, and team members. If you have an in house cyber security or IT team we do not unnecessarily duplicate their skills and we invite them into the CyAUD process.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Be cyberwise. Be a WiseLaw client.

EJ reviewed an international contract for our company prior to us selling the intellectual property rights & cyber content on one of our popular computer games to overseas buyers.

Cannot recommend highly enough. Fast turnaround, plain english, fair pricing.  

Would certainly use again.

EJ assisted us with a complex matter involving multiple insurance policies, physical damage to premises, and duty of care failures.

Thank you EJ for putting the rainbow back into our cloud.

From the start, working with WiseLaw has been an excellent experience. They have provided friendly and empathetic support and really dove into the issue at hand and was quick to provide the next steps.
