Company Background - General Overview

Information Identity Pty Limited is a wholly Australian owned provider of management and general consulting services relating primarily to the areas of identity, information, data and ICT based trust solutions, headquartered in Canberra, ACT.

The company was established through the amalgamation of a consortium of smaller specialist, and well regarded companies, in order to leverage and build upon the unique skills and experience of each.  The result has been one of a dynamic and effective organisation, which has demonstrated its capability for many clients as being far more than the sum of its individual components.

Information Identity has a strong focus on the Defence, Security and Intelligence markets (and related clients) and the vast majority of its personnel have high level security clearances.

Information Identity’s aim is to deploy resources, capability and personnel to complement, enhance and develop the knowledge and skills within a client organisation’s own resource pools and to build strategic alliances that improve the capacity and capability of the client to meet or exceed their operational, functional and business requirements.  Our personnel operate ethically at all times, and rigorously represent our clients' interests as if they were their own.
Information Identity is both product and vendor neutral, and is therefore able to provide advice and consultancy services to clients that are based upon best-solution, or best-fit outcomes, tailored to specific requirements, needs, capabilities and environment.

Our independence from specific vendors and technologies does not mean that we have no knowledge or visibility of them, but rather that we maintain an active monitoring of industry trends and participate in discussions with many vendors in relation to their product offerings and solutions that enable capabilities within into the specialist areas in which we operate.


Company Resources

To ensure significant breadth and depth of capability and service offerings, Information Identity has established strategic alliances with a number of specialist sub-contract organisations who are integrated into the Information Identity company structure as required.

These external companies are predominantly small to medium enterprises that have established themselves firmly within specialist areas of the marketplace, either across a number of disciplines, or within a particular niche.  Information Identity has conducted probity checks on each of them and ensures, and is satisfied, that these companies are ideologically aligned with ourselves and conduct their business in honourable and forthright manners.

Teaming with a range of similarly minded and focused companies enables Information Identity to provide clients with services across many disciplines and specialist areas.  In this way, Information Identity is able to offer clients a wealth of theoretical and practical knowledge.  Our commitment to excellence in service delivery can be attested to by any of the reference contracts we can provide on request.

Information Identity has available a significant number of personnel, most of whom hold tertiary qualifications in electrical and electronic, mechanical, aeronautical, computer, communications, system engineering and project management disciplines.  We have practical knowledge and experience with a range of platforms, applications and environments.  Information Identity staff are considered experts in their core competencies of engineering, information communications technology, project management and systems integration, and have established a reputation for achievement, delivery and client satisfaction.

Information Identity recognises the fundamental role that professional development plays in continually improving capability and processes.  For this reason, our engineering consulting and project management capabilities are embedded and professionally managed within the company.  These organisational arrangements allow Information Identity’s consulting staff ready access to peer mentoring and review.  All project management staff have/are participating in the Australian Institute of Project Managers (AIPM) Registered Project Manager Program for individual professional growth and corporate capability enhancement.

As a professional services organisation, Information Identity is always working to further our personnel and our professionalism.  To this end we are active members of a number of key professional associations and industry bodies including:

  • Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM);
