The History of Citadel
In medieval times, the citadel was the strongest and most fortified tower within a castle used to protect irreplaceable artifacts and prized possessions. It was also the last line of defence where people retreated if their city was ever breached.
In the digital era, the nature of value and possessions has morphed to include an organisation’s information assets, systems and people. But our role at The Citadel Group remains unchanged: we are a software and technology services company that prides itself on protecting information, systems and people from harm. It is this one critical and defining purpose that unifies all that we do.
Citadel is a leading ASX-listed software and technology company that specialises in secure enterprise information management in complex environments. Citadel provides secure information to support real-time decisions across the Health, National Security, Defence and Other Enterprises.
Citadel was formed in 2007 and has over 200 employees across Australia, with the ability to access 1,300+ subject matter experts through partnerships.
We have offices in Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
