Industry Focus

Commissum has a long track record of delivering independent, expert assurance services to a broad cross-section of industry sectors and government.  This has provided good cross-fertilisation of knowledge and ideas, and an understanding of the subtle variation of business issues that each sector experiences.  The exposure of our consultants to this and the experience they draw, in turn delivers value to our clients through the service we deliver.

Whether it is penetration testing to ensure the availability of a campaign site for a national charity, assisting a law firm in adopting best practice security management principles, or providing government approved assurance services to large inter-governmental shared services initiatives, our service portfolio delivers confidence and security to our clients across all industries.

There are however a selection of sectors where we find the most demand and where focus on information assurance has grown in recent years.  These sectors are as follows:
