Our customers are advised by seasoned Information Security Officers (ISOs) - not inexperienced security consultants. We are ISOs, not “security geeks” and not “inexperienced consultants”. We know how to implement security in large and small organizations and are aware of the business, technical, legal, user, financial, political, and operational aspects of implementing information security. This experience provides us with an insight that helps to design and implement balanced, pragmatic solutions that work with business, not against it.
Our experience as ISOs enables us to provide our customers with the following benefits:
Fixed-price contracts Almost all of our contracts are fixed-price contracts. This helps our customers to avoid cost over-runs and ballooning contracts.
Knowledge Transfer Our goal is to help our customers become self-sufficient. Providing our customers with a knowledge transfer helps to achieve this goal.
Shorter Time-to-Market Our experience as ISOs provides us with an insight into business, development, security, and IT processes and solutions that help to deploy projects in an expedient manner. We know what works, what doesn’t, and why. Consequently, we can help our customers avoid bottlenecks, unworkable solutions, and wasted efforts. This results in a shorter Time-to-Market and lower deployment costs.
Cost Effective Solutions We believe that we have an obligation to recommend the most cost-effective solutions for our customers. It has been our experience that frequently, a complex problem can be solved with simple, inexpensive solution.
User-friendly solutions Information security implementations must be user-friendly if they are to be successful. Solutions that fail to achieve this goal will actually increase security risks over the long term.
Lower, managed risks As ISOs, we are experienced in managing risks. We advise our customers on managing their risks:
Risks prioritized according to business criticality
How the risks may be effectively managed (such as correcting the problem, re-assigning the risk, accepting the risk, etc.)
Distributing the costs of implementing corrective measures over multiple quarters or fiscal years to minimize the impact on the balance sheet
