On 7 June during Infosecurity 2019, Apvera - a Singapore-based Cyber Security Risk Management technology company - announced the establishment of its brand new European Headquarters in the Netherlands (Amsterdam) as part of the organisation’s worldwide expansion strategy. Leveraging its solid reputation with existing European customers, Apvera plans to reinforce its position in EMEA, by focusing its efforts by recruiting new clients and local partners.
In addition to the establishment, Apvera also joined the Hague Security Delta (HSD): a Dutch security cluster where businesses, governments and knowledge institutions work together on innovative security solutions. It provides a platform for discussing security issues and sharing knowledge on cyber security, national and urban security, protection of critical infrastructures, and forensics.
As provider of sophisticated cyber security risk mitigation solutions to safeguard against lethal cyber-attack, Apveras’ partnership with HSD is already paying dividends, as the community showcases state-of-the-art technologies to willing European Enterprises. Apvera seeks to become a valuable, active contributor to the Dutch security cluster to raise awareness, community participation and promote thought leadership throughout the ecosystem.
“We are fully committed to providing the industry continued innovation. By joining HSD we look forward to discussing key security issues with other members of the cluster while fomenting awareness and knowledge.”, said Eric Meyer, CEO at Apvera
Apvera sets ambitious goals transforming how companies perceive and manage cyber risk, beyond the present- day status quo. By linking technology risk to corporate policies, employees and disparate systems; organisations become better informed of their internal risk posture, and are better prepared to fulfil corporate governance as well as satisfy the most thorough industry compliance regulations. A precursor to sound cyber security risk management is having a deep understanding of the overall threat landscape within the organisation through analytical tools that contextually anticipate and interpret risk.
“Today all companies, with a digital presence, must comply with a wide variety of policies and regulations to ensure their survival,” added Doug Farndale Chief Advisory Officer at Apvera, “We have made it our top priority to inform and protect any and all industries, working close with the European Union, from exploitation of their Information Technology systems. Irrespective of the origin of the exploit, whether it’s down to human error, some malicious actor or a basic system failure.”
