Digital Encode, an indigenous Information Security Management and Compliance Advisory company has extended its business wings to the United States of America. The company also appointed Olaniwun Ajayi LP as company Legal Adviser to provide accurate and timely legal advice.
Unveiling the office in New York, Oluseyi Akindeinde, Chief Technical Officer, Digital Encode, said the expansion gives the company the much needed presence in the global market place as well as access to foreign capital and affords Digital Encode the proximity to her international partners.
He added that the expansion, the first outside of Africa will position Digital Encode as a global company. “We can now take on projects that hitherto we would not have been able to take on prior to now. Technology Partners are more willing to deal with a company with a global reach. We are also closer to the technology research and development hub. It definitely benefits the company in the long term.”
On appointing Olaniwun Ajayi LP as the company’s Legal Adviser, Akindeinde, said that the firm was selected because of their pedigree in the legal profession.“They anticipate your needs and meet it even before you realize those needs. Couple with their vast array of legal expertise. For an LP, they are absolutely excellent.”
Known for their expertise in solving multifaceted, complex enterprise network security and audit problems, Digital Encode was recently recognized in the industry for its vendor independent perspectives.
This informed the company’s appointment by Central Bank of Nigeria as the sole technical partner to the Nigerian Electronic Fraud Forum (NeFF), an initiative set up for the identification, mitigation, prevention and prosecution of all electronic fraud-related acts perpetrated in the country.
Also concerned by the growing rate of cyber-attacks and cyber espionage, leading to loss of data and money, running into several billions of naira, Digital Encode in October, 2016 introduced a technology monitoring solution that could remotely monitor the cyberspace of organizations and report or stop unauthorized access to database. The solution was developed by the Centre for Information Security Intelligence (CISI), an arm of Digital Encode.
At Digital Encode, technology serves two purposes: to save money and solve a problem. Digital Encode also provides advisory services toward improvements in Information Security Management, Network Security, Vulnerability Management, Penetration Testing, Computer Forensics, Risk Management and Business Continuity Management, Akindeinde stated.
