Executive Advisory Services -  Mitigate Cyber Risks

Lynden Group supports its partners and customers with executive and professional cyber security advice. Australian Government Regulators have all expressed the importance of managing cyber risk the same as all other high-priority business risks, and aligning relevant controls and treatments.

Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB) certified Auditors are required to identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial report. Lynden Group experts help Auditors determine based on audit sample facts and the circumstances of an entity, if cyber security may contribute to the susceptibility to misstatement of certain amounts and disclosures in an entity’s financial report.

Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) is holding company directors and executives, personally liable for any breach of duty of care that arises from improper governance and treatment of cyber risk. Lynden Group is a certified ASIC agent, board member representative and employs executive cyber security advisors. We help and educate boards of directors to govern and ask the right questions when it comes to an organisation's cyber business risk. We run workshops, briefings, and help set up a cyber security committee.

Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) released its CPS234 mandatory regulation to financial services organisations. It requires organisations to uplift their information security capabilities commensurate with the evolving size and extent of the threats to their assets. Lynden Group cyber advisors are experienced with helping organisations be both compliant with CPS234 and implement it in the most practical manner.

In order to support and help operational teams, heads of technologies and cyber,  Lynden Group became one of the founding members of the Cyber Collective AU.

The Cyber Collective AU is a not-for-profit organisation founded and managed by active members of the Australian cyber security professional community.

Its members are committed to helping organisations create and maintain effective information and cyber security operations and teams.

By leveraging the Cyber Collective AU we are able to connect between our customers and veterans from all cyber security domains to ensure organisations get practical, tested, and updated advice.

The collective members are working daily with leading Australian companies at various maturity levels as well as best-of-breed cyber security vendors.
