What Makes CyberGuard Different?
CyberGuard differentiates itself from local, regional, national, and “Big 4” accounting and consulting firms in the following ways:
Our leadership team has over 150 years of business management, operations, and information technology (IT) experience. Each of our professionals has over 10 years of relevant experience at “Big 4” and other large international or regional accounting and consulting firms. Each of our professionals carries one or more of the following designations: CPA (Certified Public Accountant), CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor), CIA (Certified Internal Auditor), CRISC (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control), and/or CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional). We treat our staff as valued and highly talented peers, allowing us to pass on the cost-savings to you.
Unlike many firms, the partners, directors, and managers at CyberGuard take a very active role in each engagement. We do not disappear after the proposal process.
As a registered CPA firm with the PCAOB, both your management team and your clients can rest assured our firm is upheld to the strictest of auditing standards. If you have clients who are publicly held, having your SOC audit performed by a PCAOB registered CPA firm will give your client’s auditors the comfort they need when relying on our SOC report.
We pride ourselves in working closely and collaboratively with our clients to ensure all service-related risks are addressed with appropriate procedures. Our detailed approach also helps to identify opportunities for improvement within our clients’ operations. Our proven methodology, flexible delivery methods, efficient economic operating model, and focus on adding value for our clients is evident in everything we do.
Many firms quote a low fee with a lot of assumptions and then hit the client with change orders when the work inevitably takes longer. Our quote is set in stone (fixed fee), and we will write off any excess time to get the work done properly (any time incurred on top of our fixed fee would be our first year investment in hopes of establishing a long-term relationship with our clients).
