Advisory & Implementation Services

I provide advisory and implementation services to businesses that need someone who speaks plain English, filters out the noise, and gets to the point as quickly as possible.
  • I work with you to identify the right steps, and the right order in which to take them.
  • I use easy-to-understand yet globally-recognised frameworks as our guide, so you will be able to speak confidently about how your defences align to a recognised standard.
  • If you are a regulated firm, I show you how to prove to your Board and your regulators that you are aligning to regulatory expectations.
  • If you sell to regulated firms, I show you how to prove to these firms that you are not a risk to their security. Right now, you may think you are a solution, but they think you are a risk.
I offer a number of approaches, to align to the different ways you may want to do this.  

Approach 1: Advisor On Call

What it is: Retained ‘Ask Me Anything’ advisory service.

Best option if:

  • You want to do this yourself, at your own pace, and following an approach that suits you.
  • But you want someone you can contact if you hit a roadblock and don’t want to burn days going down rabbit holes looking online for an answer.


  • If this is the first time you have done this, you will get stuck along the way – You may be unclear about what you need to do, or which option is the best one for your organisation.
  • When you get stuck, I will get you unstuck.
  • You improve momentum and reduce frustration, by leveraging my knowledge and experience.


  • On-demand support by email or phone (subject to fair usage limit)
  • 1 x 60-minute catch-up meeting per fortnight (via Zoom or MS Teams).

Cost: €1,100 per month + VAT (or €2,950 + VAT per quarter when paid in advance)

Approach 2: Done With You

What it is: Retained ‘Done With You’ consultancy service

Best Option If:

  • You want to lead this, but following my proven approach. 
  • You want to maximise momentum and minimise frustration, and take the most direct route to your chosen destination.
  • You need to have a trusted and experienced advisor on your team who will be guiding you down the right path.


  • You gain a trusted partner to give you a structure that will guide you on what needs to be done next
  • You gain access to templates for policies and procedures so you spend less time writing and more time implementing;
  • You retain access to expertise when you get stuck.


  • On-demand support by email and phone (subject to a generous fair usage limit)
  • 1 meeting per week (scheduled 60-minute Zoom calls) + summary notes issued after each meeting 


  • €2,750 per month + VAT (or €7,950 + VAT per quarter when paid in advance)

Approach 3: Done For You

What it is: ‘Done For You’ project delivery service.

Best Option If:

  • You don’t need an advisor. You need a do’er.
  • Time is a major concern – You are under pressure to get this sorted once and for all.
  • You know you will remain accountable for the success of the initiative, so you want to remain informed of progress.
  • But you need someone who can take responsibility and guide your organisation through this.


  • Time is of the essence. Clients, prospects, board members, or regulators are asking for evidence of your security measures and you are pretty sure the evidence does not exist.
  • If you don’t get this sorted out asap, you are going to be in trouble.


  • I will lead the project, and manage it to completion (working with you, your colleagues and external service providers).
  • We will work out the specific details in the early stages of the engagement.
  • It includes weekly status report, a fortnightly review meeting, and a monthly status reporting pack.


  • You will see significant progress in a short space of time
  • You will reach the best destination for your organisation significantly faster than if you were to do this yourself.

Cost: From €9,950 per month + VAT

Are we a good fit?

Given the nature of these engagements, I only commit to a small number at any one time.

If you want to discuss your needs in more detail and see if we’re a good fit, schedule a FREEin45 call. Even if we don’t go any further, I guarantee that these 45 minutes will give you clarity on what you need to do and how you should start.

Alternatively, if that all sounds too much like a sales funnel, just get in touch.
