"We contacted SSS because their experience across government and with the Parliamentary Service in particular, means they understand our IST requirements better than any other security focused vendor".


The New Zealand Parliamentary Service approached SSS for a security gap analysis to determine how well they complied with the New Zealand Information Security Manual (NZISM) and Protective Security Requirements (PSR) guidelines.


"We wanted to benchmark our policy, processes and procedures against best practice standards in the New Zealand Information Security Manual (NZISM), particularly for restricted and classified information. We needed SSS to determine where security gaps existed with a view to protecting the network, and future-proofing the system. We have enjoyed a collaborative working relationship with SSS for many years now. This is the first time we have used them in a consultancy capacity and they have provided us with a stake in the ground - and we now know what we need to do. They have given us best practice advice on our security gaps in order to protect us now and in the future".
