Board training in cybersecurity is a critical component to a robust Information Security Program.  If your Board of Directors requires additional training on particular topics, like cloud computing, ransomware, trends in technology, or trends in cybersecurity, we offer a Board training program that you can use throughout the year.  We can also appear via video conference to answer specific and direct questions from your Board.


Our technology consultants can help you implement specific technology such as firewalls, SIEMs, end-point protection, and help secure your cloud resources in Azure or in AWS.  


All organizations could benefit by having regular advice about Information Security and Cybersecurity from someone that understands their particular environment.  Our vCISO’s will be your trusted partner in helping you provide cost-effective security leadership.
