Sense of Security joins CyberCX as founding member

15 October 2019

Sense of Security Pty Ltd announces today that we are a founding member company of CyberCX – the nation’s first at-scale end to end cyber security services organisation.


CyberCX is the vision of technology and executive veteran John Paitaridis, the group’s CEO, and backed by Australia’s largest Private Equity fund – BGH Capital. This is a high-profile venture representing the most significant deployment of capital in the cyber sector in Australia’s history.


CyberCX will be staffed by equally impressive personnel such as Alastair MacGibbon, who has held leading roles in government and enterprise. MacGibbon was Australia’s National Cyber Security Advisor and most recently the head of the Australian Cyber Security Centre (Deputy Director General, Australian Signals Directorate).


Sense of Security (SOS), established in 2002 by co-founders, Murray Goldschmidt and Jason Edelstein, has grown to become one of the most respected firms in Australia, across the disciplines of Technical Assurance and Governance, Risk & Compliance services. With offices in Sydney and Melbourne, and over 50 professionals servicing the nation’s government and finest corporate establishments, the firm has been extensively sought after for assurance, trust and confidence.


SOS has developed a formidable brand and presence in the region. The company leads with innovative services delivered by the top consultants in the industry. The co-founders are highly credentialed, active contributors to the cyber community, and recognised leaders and industry visionaries. Edelstein is serving a second term on the CREST Australia board (the certification body for penetration testing expertise) and Goldschmidt is a substantial contributor to national, regional and international cyber security conferences.


SOS has a track record in development of intellectual property and employee capabilities. With a dedicated R&D function, the business has been committed to innovation since inception. This is a core value for the business and the reason why SOS has been so highly sought after for any professional seeking a career in cyber security. The platform that SOS operates from is one that imbues trust and confidence. This has resonated with clients and staff, seeing the company grow from strength to strength.


Becoming part of the CyberCX brand is an extension of the original vision of Edelstein and Goldschmidt – to operate the nation’s most trusted cyber security firm. That vision now has a national footprint and the delivery capability of over 400 committed and focused personnel.


This is an excellent opportunity for our staff because the group provides extensive horizontal and vertical growth options across the 7 domains of cyber security that are now being delivered as a unified entity: Consulting & Advisory, Security Assurance, Risk & Compliance, Integration & Engineering, Managed Services, Incident Response & Digital Forensics, Training & Education.
