Why Choose Iron Spear?
We do not believe one size fits all in cyber security, we advocate an incremental approach for all our customers. Instead of aiming for the platinum level of security, we would prefer to get the basics right and achieve bronze. Cyber threats and attacks are constantly evolving as is the IT requirements from business. With that in mind we adopt an agile approach to cyber security and are flexible enough to dynamically work with clients as their needs shift and priorities change.
Experience – We bring extensive experience in information and operations security across many industries, having staff who are engineers and cyber security experts with backgrounds in the Big Four accounting firms, high tech, oil and gas, healthcare, and banking. We bring the trusted methods, approaches, and standards of quality that are expected by our clients - yet are flexible and responsive to your needs.
We have experience in many sectors of business, including:
Financial institutes, banking and wealth management
Transportation & Logistics – Metro Rail & buses, airports and shipping container terminal facilities across North America
Electric Utilities – Solar, wind, hydro and nuclear
Mining – Gold, copper, coal
Manufacturing and Energy – Chemical & natural gas refineries, pipelines
Practical Recommendations and Actions – One of our beliefs is if we cannot implement it, we will not recommend it. We do not believe in textbook recommendations, rather we want to see our clients achieve closure. We work with you to develop workable solutions to any vulnerabilities or risks identified. When developing strategies and roadmaps, we ensure what we deliver is achievable as we have seen too many roadmaps that are complex and out of proportion to realistic budgets.
We want to see you succeed – We believe in a partnership approach with our clients no matter how small the job. We work with you to ensure what is done will work for the long term. We do not sell a product, we sell our reputation and trust our service will reflect a collaborative environment.
Independence – At Iron Spear, we are not contracted to any one security technology vendor. Rather, we believe in working with our clients to determine the requirements that meet their needs and then identifying best-of-breed products that match those requirements. While we do know the key vendors and their strengths and weaknesses, we will always bring options to the table and allow you the ultimate choice.
