Alliance - A union formed for mutual benefit



The challenges stemming from a lack of adoption of “secure by design” principles in development and technology onboarding are numerous and significant as defined in our first Digital Alliances Chapter with the Alliances Community.

Increased Vulnerabilities: Systems developed without security in mind are more prone to vulnerabilities and exploits, making them easy targets for cyberattacks.

Higher Costs: Retrofitting security into a system after development is usually more expensive and time-consuming than integrating it from the outset. This approach often leads to budget overruns and delays.

Data Breaches: Security vulnerabilities can result in data breaches, leading to significant financial losses, damage to reputation, and legal repercussions due to regulatory non-compliance.

Poor User Trust: Insecure systems erode user trust and confidence, leading to reduced adoption rates and customer churn.

In some instances Regulatory Non-compliance: Many industries are subject to strict regulations regarding data protection and cybersecurity. Failing to adhere to these regulations due to insecure systems can result in hefty fines and other penalties.

Limited Scalability: Insecure systems may struggle to scale effectively as security flaws become more pronounced with growth, hindering business expansion and agility.

Resource Drain: Constantly dealing with security breaches and fixing vulnerabilities diverts resources away from innovation and core business activities.

Sponsorship is Welcome if Justified

Technology and service companies’ insights are vital to users and potential end-users looking to purchase their solutions. These suppliers have a thorough grasp of the product or service they generate, informed by the challenges, innovations, and complexities involved in its creation. Their viewpoints give insight on the complex features, prospective uses, and underlying design philosophy that would otherwise be lost on users.

This Alliances Project holistically is an ongoing collaboration between those that impact Organisational objectives around cyber culture and their efficacy and security to ensure workforce safety, sustainability and uptime is achieved.


  • Those who want to engage in the form of education contributions where commercial conversations occur when invited and not assumed to be relevant.
  • Content contributions should be evidenced through use case and not conceptualising impactful solutions.
  • Individuals may represent the service provider and also contribute from their experiences over their interactions with others who fit the criteria of this community.
  • All service providers are to be recommended to the Alliances by the community as being a positive impact on their business and responsibilities.
