This included a wide ranging Building Management and Industrial Control System for a highly controlled sector with implications on a national infrastructure level.
- Developing and delivering a class leading Cyber Maturity Assessment tool which was utilised across all sectors to help them identify and quantify their cyber maturity.

The tool has been updated to also scrutinise Governance for cyber security at board level.
