Remora work on a variety of projects for firms across many industries and sectors. The below Case Studies are a sample of the types of work we have done to-date:
Penetration Testing and Follow-on Services for a Hedge Fund
A London-based Hedge Fund received a request from its primary investor to run a vulnerability assessment for its IT systems and equipment. Remora were invited to perform the white box Penetration testing.
FTSE 100 Company prepares for new privacy law – EU GDPR
A global business with 2000+ users aims to become fully compliant with Global Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) by May 2018. REMORA was contracted to define and implement the steps to make the Client’s company compliant with EU GDPR by addressing the requirements of EU GDPR across the Client’s global offices.

The Client, a regulated financial organisation with 500+ global users aims to comply with EU GDPR regulation by May 2018. REMORA was contracted to define and implement a data classification policy to provide the basis for managing data consistently across their global operations and to plan for data leakage prevention.
Cyber Preparedness Review for a Hedge Fund
A COO of a 30-person Hedge Fund invited Remora to perform a Risk Assessment. Despite tight governance processes, good relations with an efficient IT service provider, and having already implemented many cyber best-practise controls, he wanted a 3rd party review of the current environment to showcase to investors.
“Cryptolocker” attack recovery for a Shipping Company
A Shipping company was infected by a “Cryptolocker” virus and attempts to remedy the situation by local IT staff had proven unsuccessful. Remora were urgently invited to resolve the situation.
CEO impersonation email at a Manufacturing Firm
Remora were invited by a Manufacturing Firm to investigate an email breach that resulted in a fraudulent email impersonating the CEO being sent to the Finance Team and improper payments being made totalling over £150,000.
Security Upgrade at a Multi-Family Office
Remora were originally invited to advise on an IT Consolidation Project as part of a money-saving initiative. However continuing problems with the email infrastructure switched the brief to a Risk Assessment.
The client also sought to increase inter-office collaboration between staff so specifically requested a review of data management processes to highlight internal and external vulnerabilities and potential risks through data leakage.
The client had recently experienced a significant turnaround of its senior management team and, as a result, the new team were looking to re-define the firm’s security position.
