GlobalTrade corporation engaged Waqar and his team at Canadian Cyber to take our cybersecurity program and culture to new levels and guide us in the achievement of ISO and SOC certifications on tight deadlines. Waqar’s team performed an excellent job evaluating existing processes and workflows and provided a comprehensive analysis and roadmap for the implementation of program initiatives to the required maturity levels. Throughout the collaboration, Canadian Cyber team has been invaluable in providing their expertise and guidance while simultaneously closing the resourcing gaps where necessary. Canadian Cyber team integrated seamlessly into our workforce and really felt like an extension of our own resources. Throughout the implementation cycle, we’ve faced several challenges and shifting priorities to which Waqar was able to swiftly adapt and pivot to meet the changing deadlines and evolving priorities. Project management and transparency of the implementation progress were very much appreciated by the management and all stakeholders were kept up to date on the weekly progress of all initiatives. We were able to achieve simultaneous certifications and complete concurrent audits with the help of the Canadian Cyber team and will continue to engage them as a partner in our ongoing security program maintenance and evolution. We would be delighted to recommend Waqar and his team of expert services in the cybersecurity segment to any organization that needs to establish, evolve or maintain their cybersecurity program.

I have had the pleasure of working with Waqar on various initiatives and propositions. We first met each other during a Due Diligence of third-party suppliers for Barclays Pakistan. Waqar was instrumental in analyzing key information risk aspects by evaluating suppliers. The outcome was a comprehensive DD report appreciated by Barclays Group Sourcing. Waqar’s in-depth knowledge on the subject has always been recognized at the highest level. Be it new information risk system implementation or new product, Waqar has always analyzed the initiative with thorough professionalism which earned him great respect. Overall, a very sound and professional campaigner.

It was a pleasure to work with Waqar. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge and subject matter expertise as well as his management and communication skills which were vital to his role in engaging with nearly a dozen countries and managing the varying complexities of knowledge level, language, local budgets, and logistical challenges, which was clearly evidenced by his ability to bring together disparate individuals to produce a cohesive team effort to deliver the necessary outputs.

Waqar undertook a very complex IT audit that involved multiple stakeholders under a very tight timeline. Waqar’s collaborative personality put people at ease and his auditing skills and knowledge of IT systems produced a superior report that was completed on time. I would highly recommend him for other such assignments.

Waqar and his team are extremely knowledgeable, diligent, and tireless in their effort to support our needs. I brought Waqar on to our team to help design and implement an ISO27001 program. With changing client and business priorities, this grew to include SOC1 and SOC2 Type II as well. Waqar and his team never batted an eye at the growing challenges of building and operating these programs while maintaining regular business operations. They have been instrumental in helping to design, plan, implement, and operate all policies, procedures, and controls required to satisfy an audit. The most important thing that Waqar has done for us is to help fill any gaps in our resources or processes immediately while we work to build up in these areas. His team integrates so well into our projects that we are genuinely working as one team and our goals and priorities are continually aligned. I have a will continue to recommend Waqar for his support and knowledge in cybersecurity

Risk management, IT security & data protection are one of the top priorities for a data centric organization like ours. We started working with Canadian Cyber Inc two years ago when we developed roadmap for ISO certification and GRC framework implementation. We wanted to know all the potential vulnerabilities in our systems not only to improve the serviceability but also to minimize risks while serving the 12mn+ beneficiaries base with Social Safety Net services. Canadian Cyber Inc team performed an excellent review of our existing process, policies and operational workflows in form of an initial audit report and delivered all the necessary recommendations to attain ISO 27001 ISM Certification status in a very short span of time.
Currently we have collaborated with CCI team to make all arrangements in order to comply with the ISO certification compliance while improving controls, policies and procedures. We strongly recommend their service; an organization of any size can trust them as a long term reliable cyber security & digitization partner.

I have known Waqar since 2017 when his services were acquired to complete an assessment of a complex multi-year project to implement a third-party party benefits administration system. The assessment was completed on time and on budget. Waqar was extremely professional and very competent in this role and he was well liked by all internal and external parties involved. In late 2020 I reached out to Waqar to inquire about the services of Canadian Cyber Inc. (CCI) At the time we were reviewing external vendors for an upcoming cybersecurity assessment. We were looking for a vendor with experience and one that would not break our budget. Reference checks of several CCI clients came back with positive reviews and helped to solidify a decision to select CCI for our cybersecurity assessment project. The team at CCI completed the project in 2021 and were very helpful in guiding us through the twenty or so workshops following the CIS Controls V7.1 framework. Waqar delivered the executive presentation and has since helped us to prepare and work through responses to strengthen our overall cybersecurity posture and to improve both policy and practice maturity levels. If you are beginning or perhaps continuing your journey down the cybersecurity maturity pathway, I recommend you consider the services of CCI. My experience with CCI is that they have the team, the tools, and the know-how to deliver a quality service, on time and on budget.
