RIAI - Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland | Spector


Founded in 1839 the RIAI is the professional institute for architects and architectural technologists in Ireland.

The Challenge

The RIAI is one of our longest standing clients, and we have provided them with infrastructure and support for over 10 years. During 2018 the RIAI approached us seeking advice on the technical and security aspects of GDPR compliance. As we discussed the project we found that Cyber Essentials Certification would be an appropriate way forward. Cyber Essentials is a globally recognised IT Security standard and is certified in Ireland by Certification Europe.

“As part of their compliance service Spector assisted the RIAI in the implementation of enhanced technical controls and information security management. A suite of security policies was provided. The management and communication skills of the compliance team are excellent and I would recommend their service. Spector continue to advise us on all aspects of IT management and security compliance.”
