Continued growth driven by increasing need to understand IT risk in a business context
For the second year in a row, Iceberg Networks has made the list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. Iceberg ranks 113th overall in the annual PROFIT500, published by Canadian Business and PROFIT.
The Ottawa-based company works with North America’s largest financial institutions, enterprises and government organizations to deliver Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) programs, including software, services and management consulting.
“We continue to see incredible growth in this market because companies know that they need to get a better understanding of risk, particularly operational risk, cyber risk and third party risk,” says Ken McPherson, Iceberg’s CEO. “This is becoming a top priority for companies, boards and executives that require a trusted risk intelligence program to link accurate risk data to their strategic priorities.”
Iceberg is ranked #6 for companies in the Ottawa area on this year’s list. The company is based in Kanata North, a hotbed of innovative companies in Canada’s capital. Earlier this year Iceberg opened an office in Bedford, MA and continues to expand into the United States, as it leverages its strategic partnership with RSA Archer, the industry leader in GRC software.
“It goes without saying that our growth over the past few years is thanks to the incredible team we have here. It has been a great experience to hire so many strong graduates from Canadian schools and see them excel this early in their careers. They bring so much passion and perseverance to their work every day. We’ve put a real focus in how we deliver professional services and how we can make a difference for our customers,” says McPherson.
