Problems We Are Solving

Cyber Program Management


  In addition to risk management, cyber security must be a business enabler. CISOs  should demonstrate that their programs align with business objectives, and need to quantify risks and control levels to demonstrate maturity  

Managing Cyber Incidents


Organizations struggle with responding to security incidents, eDiscovery requests and forensic investigations, which result in high costs, and inadequate solutions that are short termed in nature

Proactive Security Operations


 Organizations struggle with implementing proactive security operations processes. Primary challenges are decentralized IT management, poor definition of security roles, and inadequate definition of operational processes.  

Achieving Sustainable Compliance


 Many organizations experience that their compliance programs fail. The reason for the failure is because compliance is not integrated into security operations and governance. A sustainable compliance program will be a subset of an enterprise cyber security program.  

Handling Emerging threats


The evolving cyber security threats requires CISOs to adapt to emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence / machine learning. Additionally, operations is venturing into newer technologies such as IoT, which exposes the attack surface. 

Achieving Cyber Resilience


 Cyber resilience is a relatively new concept, which is critical for the continuation of an information security program in the event of a security breach. It bridges incident response and disaster recovery. Since this concept is so recent, most of the organizations have still not figured out how to bridge these two practices.
