What's your organisation intelligence (OQ)? Find out with a SMartE OQ assessment

APRIL 2016

The past 18 months has seen significant expansion at Business Aspect across Australia with offices opening in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and most recently Perth.  We are pleased to welcome our latest recruits Sam Ransley and Hannah Berry to our growing national team.

Throughout 2016 digital transformation initiatives will continue to lead the way as organisations seek to become more efficient and outperform their competitors. But change also means risk – often in new and unexpected ways. Increasingly clients are challenged to balance security costs with the impact it can potentially have, often resulting in exposure to business continuity and security risks that should be top of mind for any business transformation initiative.

At Business Aspect we continue to invest in our security and risk capability and it is the theme of this edition of Perspectives.  Articles include insights on cybersecurity from Brendon Taylor who heads up our risk and continuity practice, an interview with two members of his team; Brett Coleman and Robyn Bailey, and two case studies where we have delivered cybersecurity assurance and governance in the retail and education sectors.
