 Member Introductions

  1. Who are we? AssuranceLab
  2. Where are we located? Sydney
  3. Who's in our team? Paul Wenham, was a Manager in PwC prior to founding AssuranceLab to offer more accessible, affordable and fit-for-purpose information security compliance for SMB cloud services clients. AssuranceLab has grown to the leading provider of SOC 2 reports in ANZ and has recently expanded into ISO 27001, the Consumer Data Right, and a raft of other standards.
  4. What are we excited about in the industry? The software space and our clients within it, are all exciting! The information security compliance we offer (SOC 2, ISO 27001, GDPR, etc.) is not as exciting to us or our clients, but we do get a kick out of the value it creates in their businesses and the way it opens doors for our client's growth, locally and internationally. Open Banking and the Consumer Data Right are an area to watch this year, as new software products take advantage of this regulation to democratise consumer data. We're working with clients to help them achieve accreditation to participate.
