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.

Why ISO 27001?

Improve your organisation's risk posture

ISO 27001 is a set of best practices for information security management. It provides organisations with a framework for identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks to their information assets. By implementing the controls recommended by ISO 27001, your organisation can reduce the likelihood of a security incident taking place and minimise the impact if an incident does take place.

Our steps to help your organisation with ISO 27001 certification

1. Get to know your business

We take time to really get to know your organisation—your people, processes, goals etc. We understand your systems and documentation, interview leaders in your company, run workshops to understand how the whole ecosystem links together.  

2. Discovery

Once we have a thorough understanding of your organisation, our consultants will capture specific details of how cyber security is managed throughout your business. This is where we look at what your organisation has in place today in terms of cyber security compared to the requirements of the ISO 27001 standard. With this information, a tailored roadmap of implementation is formed. 

3. Identifying the things that matter

Next our consultants will start to get very familiar with your risk management system. We address questions like what information assets does your organisation have? What are the threats to these assets? What are the vulnerabilities of these assets? What is the likelihood of each threat occurring? etc. This helps us develop a risk management plan tailored to your organisation’s specific needs.

4. Governance and documentation ​

Next, we set up an ISO 27001 governance framework that steers everything else in your cyber security practices. We’ll then work through all the documentation required for ISO 27001 certification. We tackle each topic to ensure we are not only ticking the compliance boxes for ISO 27001 but also building something that can be used to further protect your business in a worst-case scenario. 

5. Training and transferring knowledge

We help with training your team and transferring knowledge to ensure everyone in your company is being brought along for the journey. We also help upskill the key operators of your management system to ensure they are confident maintaining the ongoing ISO 27001 policies. 

6. Ongoing audits and cyber maintenance

Once certification is achieved, we can support your organisation with ongoing maintenance of your information security management system. This includes helping with evidence collection and policy updates, and conducting internal audits which are required to support ongoing maintenance of the ISO 27001 certification. It means you can get on with other things and be confident your organisation is cyber protected.
