Oakleigh Consulting & Peapod Consulting have agreed partnership terms to enable the two companies to work together with the OGC S-CAT Service Framework to deliver information security services to public sector organisations.
Oakleigh is a provider of management consultancy services to a wide cross-section of bodies from across central government, NHS, local authorities, education and housing associations. Peapod has consulted with the same elements of the public sector on a wide variety of information security initiatives.
"At present, many in the public sector do not see best-practice information security as fundamental to secure electronic delivery and effective joined-up government. By teaming up with Oakleigh we are able to educate more of the sector about the need to put ‘Security First’," comments Chris Durnan, managing director or Peapod.
"We not only gain access to transact business via S-CAT but we also get to partner with Oakleigh on projects where we can increase awareness of information security best practice."
