Zygma works with a number of other organizations in the same or closely-related fields. These organizations are spread around the globe, matching Zygma's scope of service provision.

We use these organizations when we need to supplement our own resources or skills, or provide better geographic coverage, in order to build the most effective team for our clients; we may enter into joint-venture arrangements with them or we may ourselves provide services to support our Partners. Our partners may therefore provide additional skills to strengthen Zygma's team depth or they may provide complementary skills to extend the breadth of Zygma's offerings.

Our basis for selecting Partners is simple: we need to know that they are competent in their field, trustworthy in their business practices and will act on Zygma's behalf with Zygma's interests as their first priority when dealing with the client.

We will always make it known to our clients that we are working with Partners to fulfill an assignment with them, and give the client the opportunity to veto the Partner, in the unlikely event that they should have a reason to do so (its never happened yet). The client will only need to contract with Zygma - we will establish back-to-back contracts with our Partners to ensure that the client's expectations are fulfilled and that the obligations of our mutual NDA are upheld.

We list below those organizations with which we have strategic Partnering arrangements. By clicking on their logo you will be taken to their website.


Gamma and Zygma have collaborated since the late 1990s on a series of client assignments and applied research studies in trust and assurance for electronic services. Results of these studies have contributed to client solutions, the development of tScheme and the E Authentication Initiative, and to international standards. Zygma also collaborates with Gamma on development of the AIMS management system documentation support, which was originated by Gamma and William List & Co.

Here's what they say about themselves: "Gamma offers independent, objective advice and help with Information Security. Over the past 17 years we have provided a wide range of information security consultancy services to UK government and commercial organisations world-wide."


PECB (formerly Veridion) is heading towards becoming the first Personnel Certification Body accredited by ANSI (American National Standards Institute).  Zygma is a Certified trainer under PECB's scheme which allows Zygma's ISO/IEC 27001 training to deliver Personal certification and CPE credits to participants on its courses (subject, in the case of formal certification, to them successfully passing an end-of-course examination).  PECB's accreditation will give international recognition to Certificates issued as a result of completing one of these certification courses.  Zygma and PECB are collaborating in the refinement of these courses and the development of new courses, specifically those addressing the implementation and operation of an ISO 27001 ISMS which demonstrates FISMA-compliance, and exciting step towards FISMA/27001 alignment and a building block for the US Government's NSTIC programme.

Here's what they say about themselves: "Our mission is to provide our clients comprehensive examination and certification services for individuals. Certification represents the intersection of protection of the public, fairness to candidates, and often, various interests of the profession."



We also have effective relationships with many other information security specialists through our work in INCITS CS1 and the US ISMS Users Group.
