Security consultancy, Securus Group has tuned its focus towards security training for its employees as it plans to increase its headcount.
Securus was acquired by ASX-listed PS&C in 2014 and has hired seven new staff, which the company considers as quite a talent coup particularly in the security space.
Securus CEO, Chris Williams, said it planned to significantly increase its staff during the next year and is offering them access to a fully funded training program to make sure that they're on top of their game. "We're on this journey for the long term, and what we have done is ensured that the structure, staff and processes are all in place to ensure future growth," he said. "In addition, we're building a strong security culture focused on developing our staff and creating an environment where professional development is central to the success of our people, as well as the business."
On top of this, it also plans to announce several new products and services in the security, auditing and brand management space.
Williams said that PCI auditing is a core offering of the business as credit card companies strengthen the audit criteria for organisations dealing with credit card data. "The latest audit requirements for PCI DSS version 3.1 have become more prescriptive, driving the need for corporates to engage the services of companies not only with strengths in PCI but who also take a more consultative role and guide companies through the process," Williams said.
