The MyEmpire Group difference

"We’re big enough to support all manner of businesses, from ma and pa’s to enterprise, but small enough to still obsess over detail."

We don’t obsess over detail to the point of paralysis, but we do take great pride in delivering exceptional work. And it’s not just because we get a thrill receiving elated client feedback, although that’s something we all share in common. Primarily it’s because we genuinely care about building cyber security systems that protect businesses. That means really learning your business and your people so we can develop a cyber security strategy suited to you, not a close-enough template pulled from a file. That’s what makes us different; we only feel satisfied when we know a job’s been done right. 

"The biggest benefit to working with MyEmpire Group is having access to cyber expertise on an as-needed basis. We're able to access skills and knowledge across a broad range of [cyber security] areas, and without having to hire in-house."
Jenelle Schultz
Chief Operating Officer, Business Fitness
"The MyEmpire Group team’s technical understanding of Essential 8 and ability to cut through all the techno-speak and explain things to us in layman's terms made the process so much more streamlined."
Lisa Saunders
Group Executive – Governance Risk & Compliance, REI Superannuation
"Thank you, George, John, and the MyEmpire Group team for delivering an amazing piece of work and executing the project in a very efficient way. The outcome is very much aligned with what we were expecting to get."

Our People

Our cyber security specialists are a mixture of seasoned veterans, many with 30+ years’ experience in IT, management and security. We also have young faces on the team, our rising stars–those whose talents we recognised early and chose to invest in. 

Beyond being experts in their fields, our people share a few things in common, a result of how we hire. Prior to any skills being tested in an interview, we look for personable people. Authentic, honest people who are passionate about their field and good communicators. In other words, we look for people who light up when they talk about their line of work. People whose passion is contagious. Only candidates who meet this criteria are taken through the typical interview steps where we probe skills and work history.

Let our Cyber Security Specialists help

A Cyber Security Health Check is a great starting point if you’re looking for a general uplift to your cyber security.

Conducted online, it’s a fast and easy way to have one of our Cyber Security Specialists assess your organisation’s overall security posture and provide recommendations on ways to strengthen your cyber security. 

After assessing your security risks, our experts will provide a Cyber Security Health Check Report outlining their findings. The report provides a high-level view of the key cyber risks to your business as well as recommendations on how to treat these weaknesses to improve your cyber defence. Consider it a map of the cyber-risk terrain—specific to your organisation—along with the blueprints to cyber security fortification.
