Australian, Indian firms enter joint venture

Stickman Consulting, a leading information security company based in Australia, has entered into a joint venture with city-based law firm Abhay Nevagi & Associates to offer services in information security and cyber forensics in the country.

Ajay Unni, global managing director of Stickman Consulting, said, “In modern day business practices, management and compliance for information security and certification of data, security standards are of paramount importance, not only to prevent cyber crime but also for data protection. With this JV, we intend to offer a complete solution in specific areas based on expertise of both the entities”

“We are trying to tackle problems related to data security, data misuse, web attacks and cyber forensics, especially in a time when India has been ranked as the highest spam originator country. Contributing to 4% of worldwide spam volume, it has jumped from 13th rank rank in 2008 to 3rd in 2009 in web-based attacks and is witnessing multi-fold increase in cyber crime every year”, said Abhay S Nevagi, head of Abhay Nevagi & Associates.
