We founded Security Risk in 2017 with our mission to disrupt how security operations are
managed and translate an idea into an entirely new approach that connects people and keeps
them safe. In 2021, we rebranded to Software Risk with a new mission to automate operations
not just in the security industry but the rest of the service-based industries so that companies
can work intelligently with the help of technology.
Adopting a new way of doing something means taking a risk. Yet our previous experience, in the same vein of our clients today, is focussed on minimising risks.
Today, Software Risk thrives on the challenges and the risks we take. That doesn’t mean we ignore risk – but instead, we push the boundaries to provide an innovative and robust solution to our clients. Our leaps of faith significantly reduce their risks – which, ultimately keeps people safe.

We recognise that all our employees have something to add to the process and encourage everyone to contribute and share their ideas. We work as a team, acknowledging that our team members are competent, reliable, and trustworthy to get on and do what needs doing.
While we’re driven and passionate about what we do and everyone is accountable for their own actions, we also trust each other and respect freedom and autonomy.
With offices in Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom, we are always on the lookout for the next member of the Software Risk team.
