About Us

Oversight is a pioneer in applying ISO 31000 Risk Management Standards in our security management and consultancy solutions. This is the framework which is now or soon will be used by every security professional, and now being incorporated by ASIS into their new Standards.

In 2011 we launched our Chatter web based software – a SaaS designed specifically for security and risk professionals. Our software is a “full generation” ahead of anything being offered by other security consultancies, worldwide! Try Chatter for free – and then tell us what you think!

"Businesses, public and private organizations and associations continue to experience dynamic and complex risk environments.
