Cybersecurity and Privacy challenges are getting increasingly complicated, disproportionally affecting startups and small & medium-sized businesses.
You or your staff try to fill in the gaps and spend an inordinate amount of time researching security topics and implementation details.
Full-time seasoned cybersecurity staff is hard to come by and costly to hire. Junior security professionals require significant ramp-up time and training.
to seasoned cybersecurity and privacy leaders
your journey to a secure and compliant organization
Our customers are at different stages in their cybersecurity and privacy journey
Your questions may start with:
"We want to be secure . What should we do?"
"How can we best answer a customer's security questionnaire ?"
"We are required to pass a SOC-2 audit before the end of the year. How do we go about that?"
"We need to be HIPAA / PCI / NIST / CCPA / GDPR compliant in the next 3-6 months. Is that possible?"
Our vCISOs are (very) technical
We do not conduct check-the-box-in-a-spreadsheet style security assessments.
We understand real-world risks and remediation roadblocks because we have been running security departments in organizations like yours.
Speak SQL injection with your engineers
Discuss privacy regulations with your lawyers
Talk security metrics and reports with your management team
in the same breath.
We have hands-on experience implementing cybersecurity frameworks and privacy controls with your technology stack.
