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

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.

Talk to a Cyber Security Specialist


Good cyber defence begins with good strategy. And good strategy begins with genuine understanding. Not just understanding the foundations of good cyber defence but understanding how your organisation operates as a whole. After all, cyber runs across all parts of a business. So, without an intimate understanding of how your organisation operates, good cyber strategy simply isn’t possible.

This is the key to effective cyber security: taking the time to understand all the intricacies of your organisation. How your products, people, processes etc work independently and together to create a completely unique business ecosystem. 

This is our expertise: we consider your situation and learn your business more than most. Our Cyber Security Specialists really get to understand your organisation as a whole when they do their reviews and develop your strategy. We consider your people as individuals and the unique ways they work, your specific systems and documentation, your in-house skills gaps etc. 

The result is you get a cyber security strategy as practical as it is protective. Something built to protect ‘you’, not a similar business down the road. 

Security of Critical Infrastructure (SOCI)


The Strategic Initiatives Roadmap is guidance on what we see as priority. The road map has strategic initiatives, and these initiatives may have many sub tasks that can be run in parallel. 

Consider it a bird’s eye view of the activities required to uplift your cyber security, incorporating everything: the areas you need to focus on, types of activities required, people involved, expected time frames etc to guide you through the process of maturing your cyber security.
