Cybergrape, a Taranaki cybersecurity firm have partnered with the Taranaki Foundation as an operational supporter focused on making sure that cyber security is built into the Foundation risk profile.

Josh Hickford, Taranaki Foundation CE, says the generosity of Cybergrape is greatly appreciated.

“We are proud to welcome Cybergrape into our ‘family’ of supporters. As the digital landscape continues to evolve, so do the threats to our sensitive information. We understand that cyber protection is never a ‘set and forget’ situation, yet this is a complex area that we are not experts in.”

Niel Chapman, Cybergrape Director and Co-founder, says more than in any year previously, 2022 was a big year for high-profile cyber incidents, yet despite this “Cyber security is not something many business people like to think about too much about. There’s a bit of the old kiwi ‘she’ll be right’ attitude, usually accompanied by ‘it won’t happen to us’ – until it does, of course!”

“CyberGrape is set up to help businesses become cyber-smart. A trusted partner in managing third-party risk and ensuring top-notch cybersecurity. We are proud to be a Taranaki Foundation supporter enable them to be cyber-secure, without a massive price tag.”

The Taranaki Foundation is fortunate to have generous support from our funders, sponsors, organisations, individuals and donors investing their time, resources or expertise, they enable us to grow our reach and to build a prosperous Taranaki for all.
