Meet Birmingham

After seeing the general apathy of IT service providers, Scott Birmingham founded Birmingham Consulting Inc. (BCI) in 2009 with the goal of applying the engineering principles used by high-value manufacturing industries to deliver IT services.

With this focus on uptime and risk mitigation, BCI became an early adopter for delivering cyber security as part of our managed IT services. As our cyber security expertise deepened over the years, we also broadened our services to include information security as a whole, including compliance.

Now, our services are streamlined to be 100% dedicated to information security; with a focus on delivering virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) services, Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS), and Defense-in Depth (DiD) information security services.

We have a passion for protecting the information assets of Canadian companies and helping them comply with the security standards relevant to their business.

Don’t just take our word for itlisten to what our clients have to say.

Simply put, Birmingham Consulting gives us confidence in our systems. We have the peace of mind to work on our business and rely on their professionalism and expertise for streamlining our systems to increase our uptime. We know they take our work and the welfare of our business seriously.

Peace of mind! Cyber security is complicated and always changing. Birmingham has proven their ability to stay current in terms of monitoring threats and implementing new tools. Their service is great, response time is great, and they spend my money like it’s their own. I never feel like I’m being up-sold. It’s a very transparent relationship.

Our industry is regulated by multiple government agencies and depends on technology for compliance tracking in addition to daily operations. So when technology disruptions occur, we need them fixed fast. We dealt with technology issues for years until referred to Birmingham Consulting.  Now our systems just work. We are worry free and know we have back up data if needed.

Our truck repair facility needed a completely new computer system as we were transferring our operations from paper to computer tablets. We decided on Birmingham Consulting to take on the challenge. The transfer from our old system to new was seamless. Their team adapted to our changing schedule to have us ready for business.  After startup, whenever our team needs support, Birmingham responds and resolves quickly. Everything has gone so well that we transferred our construction company IT to Birmingham.

Birmingham Consulting is an awesome IT firm. We knew when we opened our new office that we needed a strong network infrastructure to support our growth. With Birmingham’s help, not only do we have it, we also gained a great business partner.

Our relationship with Birmingham Consulting is a true partnership. They take the wellbeing of our business as seriously as we do. The few issues that do occur are resolved expediently and professionally.

With Birmingham, quality, integrity, and delivery are second to none.

Reasons we rely on Birmingham Consulting: “Owning” our infrastructure, giving us choices and providing best practice guidance. We feel as though we matter; and are not just another client. The personal connection, openness and transparency of their team is very refreshing. If you’re on the fence about Birmingham, my advice is to go with them – you won’t regret it!

I highly recommend Birmingham Consulting to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy and personable company. When you are dealing with things as important to a business as information and data, honesty, integrity and experience are essential. Birmingham provides all of that and more.

Birmingham is great at implementing proactive solutions and recognizing trends that help us stay on our “A-game”. Their attention to detail, and focus on prevention along with long-term planning, are outstanding. Their team’s thorough documentation, records and procedures are extremely valuable to us, and we never have to worry about breach of privacy or classified information. We trust Birmingham completely!

After 15 years of in-house IT support for an industrial manufacturing facility, it was time to upgrade our infrastructure. Birmingham Consulting walked us through a process that identified our vulnerabilities and provided a path forward.  Their knowledge of best-in-class solutions, support and customer service has proven that Birmingham Consulting was our best choice.
