We always function as a trusted advisor and source of ground truth for boards of directors and senior executives.


Our mission is to help clients secure their critical information assets, and to facilitate effective security governance.

operational principles

Effective security governance ensures the organizational culture, business operations and cybersecurity risk management are in sync and aligned with the tolerance for risk.

Identifying technical vulnerabilities is necessary but not sufficient to effectively manage cybersecurity risk. Processes, workflows and culture contribute significantly to the magnitude of risk.

Cybersecurity risk is scale-dependent and therefore requires both macroscopic and microscopic assessments to address root causes and individual vulnerabilities, respectively.
