Why engage a Vectra IRAP Assessor?

Engaging an IRAP Assessor can be highly beneficial for organisations because they are independent experts in performing Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessments. IRAP assessors have been trained and accredited by the Australian government to provide expert advice on information security matters.

By engaging an IRAP Assessor, organisations can:

  1. Ensure compliance with government requirements: IRAP assessments are mandatory for government agencies and commercial organisations providing services to the Australian government.
  2. Obtain an independent and objective assessment: IRAP assessors provide an impartial and objective assessment of an organisation’s security posture, which can help identify potential security risks and vulnerabilities.
  3. Improve security posture: IRAP assessors can provide recommendations for improving an organization’s security posture, helping to enhance protection against cyber threats.
  4. Stay up-to-date with the latest security standards: IRAP assessors are up-to-date with the latest security standards and guidelines, including those provided by the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).
  5. Increase customer trust: By engaging an IRAP Assessor, organisations can demonstrate to their customers that they take information security seriously and have taken steps to ensure the security of their data.

Our IRAP Assessors are available to any organisation, including those outside the Australian government.
