High Table Testimonial I am Cloud

Security used to be an enterprise problem, now it’s something everyone has to contend with. But enterprise security management on SME budgets is tricky. That’s where Stuart at High Table comes in. Stuart is our “Virtual” CISO. He helps us attain ISO 27001 compliance, acts as a security advisor, and chairs our security management team. He provides flexible enterprise-grade information security management services according to our needs and budget. Stuart’s extremely knowledgeable about the industry and very well connected too – so even if there are areas he can’t cover himself, he’ll know someone who can.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY BUNDLE: I have been working with BCMs for over 15 years and also 27001/2 for the same period and working with Cyber Essentials since its creation so I have seen a fair few different approaches to creating and maintaining both BC/DR paperwork and an ISMS. When it came to getting a clear, concise, easy to follow and completely fit for purpose template set I immediately thought of www.hightable.io – I was not disappointed – they provided exactly what i needed, just when I needed it, with 121 support from the Author as an added bonus. Thank you Stuart & thank you hightable.io : James Mckinlay / Group Information Security Manager

I was lucky enough to work directly for Stuart when I started working at Agenci. I’m not going to comment about Stuarts direct knowledge with Information Security as anyone who knows Stuart or has looked through his LinkedIn profile will be able to make their own decisions on his knowledge of the subject. Unfortunately, few of those people get to work directly with him. Stuart has an amazing business acumen. Over the last 18 months I’ve learnt so much from Stuart on how a business ticks. I consider him to be a great mentor and someone I will continue to learn from in the future. He cares about people and strives to ensure the mental well being of his employees is always a number one priority. I would have no hesitation recommending Stuart to anyone. If he ever tries to employ you in the future, its probably a good move to listen to what he has to say. Kris Long | Senior Consultant
