Security Operations

An effective Information Security unit starts with a high level look at the business, reviewing goals, objectives, milestones, benchmarks and risk to ensure success of the business. Based on this understanding of the business’ principals and goals, the team can then begin to formulate a strategy to protect the business. This business focused approach then flows down into each layer of the organization and drives processes and procedures. As a result, each layer of the team—from CISO to Security Engineer to Security Analyst—plays an integral role in protecting and supporting the overall business.

Assessment & Strategy

Security and risk assessment, and strategy development provide the groundwork to move your organization from the current state to more mature, effective security posture while lowering risk to acceptable levels.

Design & Deploy

The design and deployment of an organizations security architecture is critical to ensuring the overall strategy of the organization is implemented and addressed.

Management & Awareness

Ongoing management of the security infrastructure and systems along with education of human resources significantly increases the effectiveness of an organizations security program, strategy and systems.
