Confide was founded in 2008 as an independent IT security assurance and assessment company. Confide is the longest serving local Qualified Security Assessor Company (QSA) in New Zealand. We were founded with a focus on helping people integrate PCI into their existing practices and to help organisations throughout the PCI DSS processes. We have offices in Wellington and Auckland and travel to the South Island regularly.

Over the years, Confide has worked with hundreds of small and large organisations, some of which have grown from small start ups to major international organisations. We have worked with government organisations, payment gateways, retailers, charities, and other service providers to help them reach compliance with PCI DSS and to help them in their security journey.

We primarily focus on the security of card payments and are licensed by the PCI SSC to operate in the APAC region.

Confide is also a member of the ICT Security and related Services Panel and can assist with certification and assurance work for organisations that need to undertake reviews related to the New Zealand Information Security Panel. We provide InfoSec Risk Management Assessment, InfoSec Security Governance and Strategy, and InfoSec Assurance services.

Our staff come from a variety of background which provide a wide range of in-depth knowledge in different areas. We focus not just on compliance, but security. We want you to have the best security programme you can, and we find that organisations with good security programmes have the easiest time with demonstrating compliance because security comes first. Our staff have qualifications including ISO 27001 Lead Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified Information Security Auditor (CISA), and CISSP and have completed training related to cloud services such as AWS and Azure and vulnerability scanning tools.

Confide provides a skilled independent resource that gives you and your board assurance that your security has been assessed against mature, international standards and can help you to meet your compliance needs with our skilled staff.
