Founded in 2017, Pallas Group has started off as a cybersecurity advisory helping financial services firms protect their digital assets from cyber threats. Since then, we have had the pleasure of serving firms with national and international presence.
Learning about experiences from partners in their network, our clients came to us to ask for assistance with ransomware protection. Because quality security programs require a comprehensive approach, we were able to improve overall security in a variety of areas. Since then, our mission is to assist companies with protecting their most valued assets to protect and grow profitability.
We aim to serve as trusted advisors to all of our clients. We do this by working to build a lasting relationship through tailoring services to your strategic goals. Unlike larger firms which are quick to upsell you on services that may not add value, we also give you a no nonsense approach to becoming as resistant to digital risks as possible.
Founding Partner and Managing Director
