88 MEA MARKETS / UAE BUSINESS AWARDS 2017 , UA170075 Whispering Bell provides integrated riskmanagement solutions to enable our clients to operate safely and securely in hostile or complex environments. We spoke to Technical Security Director, DavidMichaux to find out more. Best Technical Security Consultancy 2017 Founded in 2009, Whispering Bell has been growing year on year to offer advisory services to both local and multi-national clients. The specialties that have grown within the team have always been customer driven, now with extensive skills in the telecom, oil and gas, and banking fields. David discusses the service that the firm offers and how it works to provide its clients with the support they need. “Here at Whispering Bell, we build unique solutions, which equip our clients to withstand the rigors of the evolving regional security landscape and ultimately achieve their objectives. Since inception the firm has rapidly expanded its offerings across the region in support of oil and gas, critical national infrastructure, energy, telecommunications and government clients in complex and high-risk environments. The British and Arabic origins of our company have afforded us the flexibility and cross-cultural understanding necessary to develop long-term, sustainable solutions for our clients. Our primary objective is to provide a quality service delivered on time and within budget.” The success of Whispering Bell sits with the people, building a close eco system for cooperation between all levels inside the company allows everyone to express their opinions and share their ideas, this has meant that the company has had a very low turnover of staff and offers good job security to the teams. David outlines the importance of staff and how the company works to support them and ensure that they, in turn, offer their clients the very highest level of service. “The company works on a very flat structure, meaning that there is a free exchange of information and ideas, this is essential for helping the company to grow. We also believe strongly in not discriminating against any ideas junior staff members bring to the company, this is important to help build confidence in new junior staff rather than belittling ideas and killing the urge of staff to contribute ideas.” Moving forward, the focus is firmly on growth as the company seeks to continue to offer clients the very highest standards of service and support, as David concludes. “Looking ahead, big data analytics has to be the foremost request that we receive, companies are trying hard to build a balance of what data is and is not relevant in order to accurately predict security issues they have or may face in the future. As such, we are exploring more work in this area, as Whispering Bell is in a constant state of growth, looking to expand into new technology areas and grow geographically.” Company: Whispering Bell Website: Contact: David Michaux Email: [email protected] Address: Office 401, JBC5, JLT Cluster W, Dubai, PO Box 487151, UAE Phone: 00971 4 448 6690
