About Us


Callum Golding founded CSP after two decades of experience in the IT industry. Over the previous decade, he advocated and deployed Microsoft cloud technology and transformed businesses into secure, mobile, and modern workplaces. This helped key stakeholders boost cybersecurity compliance by following the Essential Eight, Zero Trust, and NIST frameworks, and empowered employees to collaborate securely. With this success in mind, he founded CSP and began building a team of like-minded cyber and cloud experts that could help many more organizations realize the full potential of Microsoft’s cloud ecosystem and remain secure and compliant along the way.


CSP believes that strong lasting relationships are built on trust and integrity, a product of straightforward and honest conversations.

CSP takes a scientific and phased approach to every engagement. First, conducting trial and error research in the lab, followed soon thereafter by randomized trials, and culminating in production-wide approval and deployment. This helps our clients rapidly uplift their environments and respond swiftly to cyber threats as they emerge.

The first principle of medicine (and IT) is ‘First, do no harm’. Knee-jerk reactions produce more harm than good so CSP ensures preparation is taken at every stage. When it comes to your data, CSP puts a consistent emphasis on the CIA triad; Confidentiality | Integrity | Availability

Eliminate, Simplify, Protect 

We help organizations consolidate their complex licensing structure and eliminate disparate and unnecessary IT products. This cuts patchwork solution costs by up to 60%.

We simplify IT workflows and reduce device management overhead. This lets you focus on higher-value activities such as defense and response. Leveraging automation, modern update services, and device provisioning technologies, such as Autopatch and Autopilot, we reduce device management by as much as 25%.

By leveraging the Microsoft E5 Security license (world leader in extended detection and response security solutions, “XDR”), we protect the digital worker at every layer. We focus on Zero Trust and the Essential Eight frameworks and this approach integrates and optimizes six key areas: identity, devices, apps, infrastructure, data, and network. This can reduce data breach risk by as much as 50%.

Realizing substantial returns on investment necessitates a proactive and forward-thinking outlook to managing, governing, and supporting the Modern Workplace. Our mission is to empower our clients to do more with less and unlock the full potential of cloud technology while safeguarding their digital estate.
