Peter Groom's Blog

I started writing this blog because I am asked so many questions about a huge number of topics ... and frankly, I can't remember the answers to all of them.

If so then please get in touch via the "Contact Peter" tab and if I can help then I will.

However, whether working on an IT Due Diligence or as an IT Assessor or IT Reviewer, many of the steps are common to all three activities.
