Our mission is to support your success
6clicks was founded in 2019 by co-founders Andrew, Louis, and Ant in the face of increasing regulation across all sectors, the need for businesses to manage risk better, and a wake of high-profile hacks making cybersecurity for businesses paramount.
The idea was to provide advisors and businesses with a platform that integrates all the functionality you need for audit, risk and compliance, content, and AI to supercharge the experience and save time. Early in 2020, the 6clicks platform was released underpinned by three core characteristics that still power the platform today.
6clicks setup and onboarding
You can sign-up for a 6clicks trial and follow the easy steps to set up your account. Or, by 6clicks Support following engagement for the 6clicks Enterprise Sales team. As a part of this, we will ensure you have initial access.
A 1-hour onboarding call is included in the 6clicks quote provided by our Enterprise Sales team. This includes a session that discusses your requirements, outlines the resources available, and orientates you to the required functionality.

This function assists you in creating questionnaires and audits to get important information from internal and external sources. You can build an assessment upon the available templates based on global standards or create your own assessment.
This functionality lets you create custom registers for events or items such as assets, breaches, conflicts of interest, etc. The registers are readily available for assessment and review throughout your organization.
6clicks risk management lets you send out large-scale risk reviews and get tailored responses from across the organization. You can build your own risk libraries from the built-in libraries and by adding more risks relevant to you.
