FAQs

How do I get more information about your services?

We'd be happy to discuss our capabilities with you in greater detail.  You can contact us for more information either by e-mail or telephone. See our contact page for details.

I've noted that you are a Canadian company.  Do you work outside of Canada?

As security professionals we go wherever the work will take us.  We have worked from coast to coast in Canada. We also have consultants who have traveled the world and are comfortable working in various cultural environments.  Our more recent engagements, for example, have taken us to the US, Germany, and Croatia.

What are your rates?

Our rates vary depending on the nature of the work, the client, the length of the engagement and the location.  We prefer fixed price contracts but are happy working per diem.  Our rates are typically quoted in Canadian or US dollars, plus expenses and relevant taxes. If you have a particular engagement and budget in mind please contact us for information and pricing.

Do you sell security products?

We do not sell security products but offer consulting services only. We avoid associating with particular product vendors in order to avoid any semblance of bias when we evaluate or recommend security safeguards. We strive to maintain out neutrality with respect to security products.

What kind of certifications do your consultants hold?

Our consultants are all Certified Information System Security Professionals (CISSP), Certified Information Security Managers (CISM), Certified in Risk and Information System Controls (CRISC), Certified Corporate Information Security Officers (C|CISO) and ITIL Certified. Our consultants include RCMP Physical Security Analysts, Certified Common Criteria Evaluators, Entrust Consultants and Administrators, Information System Auditors, Banyan Engineers, ISO 17799 Consultants, and Fortinet Certified Engineers. We also have numerous associates holding almost any security certification you can think of.

Can I buy shares in your company?

Unfortunately, no. We are not a publicly traded company but are privately owned.

Need more help?

We'd be pleased to discuss any security-related issue with you as long as it does not evolve into free consulting [grin]. After all we are in business. If, however, you have a pressing security question or problem that is bugging you, don't hesitate to ask by e-mail. One of our consultants would likely be pleased to assist you. We are great supporters of small business and home users and often can help with security problems at little or no cost.
