About us

YICE

YICE was founded in 2019 by the owner of Awaretoday. Since years Excel was used to register risks, controls and actions, needed to manage the Information Security Management System (ISMS). The Excel sheets were improved over the years but these remained rough and sober when it came to user management, audit trail, logging, functionality, etc. Because of these reasons YICE was build, to effectively and efficiently operate the ISMS. During the YICE development however, it appeared that YICE has a lot more potential and can have a much wider scope. It can be used to manage a wide range of control frameworks, like HSEQ or GDPR. But YICE can also easily be used in environments in which assurance is an important issue, like ISAE 3402 or SOC2. Owner, reviewers and (external) auditors, can work together and manage their own interests.

Awaretoday

YICE and Awaretoday share the same owner. Awaretoday delivers consultancy, IT-audit and training support in the field of information security, privacy, quality and risk management. Please visit our website for more information: www.awaretoday.nl

Awaretoday was founded in 2014 from the vision that information security can only be effective if it fits in with the dynamics and culture of the organization. The name Awaretoday has not been chosen by coincidence. Awareness and commitment, at all levels in the organization, form the basis for success. First be aware, then be secure.
