About Us

At CSO Group, we work with organisations to demystify cyber security and simplify the end-to-end thinking, process and management of security capability and strategies to mitigate business risks and threats.​

Cyber Security is a complex matter, but getting it right is extremely important. We understand that every business is different, so our experts will work with you to define and achieve security outcomes aligned to your unique business requirements. Whatever your needs, our consultants will work with you to identify the right approach and ultimately achieve cyber security outcomes for your business.

Our VISION is to 'Deliver Cyber Security Excellence' and our MISSION is to 'help Australian businesses realise their potential in a safe and resilient manner by bringing creativity and pragmatism to every cyber security problem.'

Our Story​

Established in Perth in 2017 by CEO Michael Simkovic, CSO Group was launched with the vision of providing ICT security services and solutions to protect Australian businesses from advanced cyber threats.

Having a great wealth of experience across business streams, including accounting, sales and strategy, Michael identified a need for a cyber security service that truly integrates with the customer environment as an extension of their team; becoming a true partner and strategic advisor on cyber security and engaging with organisations at a business level to help them understand and manage risk. Boosted by the vast industry and leadership experience from Chief Strategy and Technology Officer Hank Clark, CSO Group has developed strategic partnerships that compliment their risk-based approach, from consulting and advisory through to implementation and managed services. CSO Group delivers our services right across Australia with offices and staff in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, and Brisbane.
