CYBER GC

About us

Our Mission

Cyber GC combines legal, strategic and business experience to advise our clients on how understand, prepare for, defend against and recover from cyber attacks.

We tailor our services to your organisation so you and your teams fully understand how cybersecurity can impact you, and what you can do about it.

We don’t speak another, technical, cybersecurity language. Our training, our services, our reports and our advice are delivered in plain English. No jargon. Promise.

Our mission is to demystify cyber security for Australian organisations, and to be their trusted advisors in becoming cyber resilient.

Our Expertise

There are cyber lawyers, and then there are cyber lawyers. Cyber GC’s lawyers are not new to this space. We have been working in cybersecurity law, and technology law, since before it was the ‘new and cool’ type of law to do.

We bring not only deep expertise in the cybersecurity risks that face our clients, but in the underpinning technology, and the organisational and strategic challenges to cyber resilience.

Our skills are broader than legal advice. We have helped grow global cyber businesses and we have advised on cyber law in over 30 countries. We are not only experts in data breach (eg personal data and privacy breach), but in the broader cybersecurity threats that face an organisation beyond personal data leaks.
We truly are your trusted advisors and partners in building your cyber resilience.

Cyber Skills

Technical

Our lawyers are technology lawyers at heart. We have worked side by side with the cybersecurity experts who investigate, defend and help you recover from breaches, and our advice grows from this technical base.

Legal

Most cyber lawyers are privacy and data breach experts, or litigation and insurance experts, who now call themselves cyber lawyers. Cyber GC’s lawyers have experience advising on cybersecurity legal issues on a global scale. We understand the technology that underpins the cyber threats, and their defence.

We bring to our legal advice our global expertise, tailored to Australian law and business risks. We are not your average cyber lawyers.

Executive

At Cyber GC we have worked as senior in-house counsel for multi-billion dollar, Fortune 500 companies. We have also served on boards, and advised executives in businesses of all sizes.

We pride ourselves in translating the complexity of legal and cybersecurity issues into plain English, tailored to the key risks and issues facing our client. We do not provide advice at ‘arms length’. We put ourselves in your shoes and support your decision making with expert and experienced advice and insights.

Government

Our lawyers have all worked for or with Australian Commonwealth and State government agencies over many years. We hold clearances, and understand the unique challenges faced by government agencies. Our advice and support for government is informed by our understanding of the underpinning policies and frameworks in which government operates.
