SS-Consulting is a Black-owned consultancy company based in South Africa that specialises in strategic and technical consultation in the field of Information Security, Governance, Risk and Compliance. 
Our company is built on the assumption that the enterprise technology landscape is forever changing, and this presents challenges of ensuring that Security, Governance, Risk and Compliance is well entrenched within business processes, systems, products and infrastructure. When it comes to Information Security, Governance, Risk and Compliance; we believe that there is no single “silver bullet” approach to all company challenges. 
All companies are unique in their own right, as such, we strive to acquire an in-depth understanding of our clients’ business objectives, goals and vision in order to ensure that our solutions do not only support critical business initiatives, but are also an enabler to our clients’ business objectives. 
SS-Consulting therefore provides customised on-site consulting services and assistance in the assessment of business risks, key business requirements for security and the development of security policies and processes. Our on-site consulting services include comprehensive security architecture assessments and design (including technology, business risks, technical risks and procedures). 
ITGovernance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) is often cited as one of the top 5 issues companies have to address. Due the complex nature of the industry and statutory regulations and the constantly changing threat landscape, most companies struggle to keep abreast with the regulatory landscape as well as dealing with the complexity of GRC. 
This is further exacerbated by the shortage or lack of human resources to manage the GRC function. With SS-Consulting services, it is possible for companies to achieve their business objectives without sacrificing on their security and compliance requirements.
