TBI’s Security Service.
Our unique program, called CyberGuide, is a retainer based approach providing top strategic and tactical cyber services; allowing us to provide results at a fraction of their normal costs.
All of us are now aware of the growing threat posed by criminal and state entities to some of our most valuable assets i.e. information and data. This is no longer a problem of teenagers challenging the establishment for fun. We now exist in an environment where our corporate existence, our competitive place in the market, and the investments we have all made in developing intellectual capital to differentiate ourselves, are threatened continuously by the tapping of a keystroke by a malevolent party.
Consider the following:
- There are now 500,000 cyber-attacks mounted worldwide every minute!
- The undeniable move towards automation, robotics and AI to improve productivity has a massive downside – we are now more leveraged by and committed to technology than ever; and that is going to only intensify
- Data leaves your offices via tablets and smart phones daily and they are extremely vulnerable to cyber-attack.
- The massive move of applications to the cloud and the growing reliance on private and hybrid clouds are providing a huge target for increasingly sophisticated malware.
- The “Internet of Things” – i.e., creating massive inter-connectivity between all types of devices, is further widening the “attack surface” for cyber hacking.
We can go on, but you get the idea. Data Security has evolved into one of the biggest issues facing corporate America today and it is only going to grow in importance.
This has led to a huge demand for cyber security talent and increasing reliance on protection software and associated tools. The costs for all of this is significant and growing! Further, history is repeating itself. All too often, the threat of cyber-attack is being treated as an IT issue, being resolved primarily through tactical measures using software, hardware and movement to cloud providers as the solution.
At TBI, we respect the absolute need for technical competence to help solve the growing security vulnerabilities of our clients. However, the threat is so omnipresent and the potential impacts so consequential that we believe that Cyber protection is a business problem, not an IT problem. We believe that the business leaders of each company must be on top of and totally aware of the internal programs in place to minimize the risks of cyber-attacks to their Enterprise environment. They must be the strategic leaders of the effort; not just the executives getting quarterly reports from IT. Anything less opens up C-level executives with fiduciary responsibility to both loss of job and potential lawsuits in the case of a major breach with large impacts. Research the Target, Yahoo, PayPal and LinkedIn breach events as a small sample size reference for the individual and Enterprise consequences of poor security planning and executive oversight.
Cyber Guide was developed by TBI to help mitigate all of the above. We are very senior consultants, with significant security experience, acting as coaches, guides and mentors to your existing staff and security programs. With our experience we can fill the gaps, raise the bar, add knowledge and provide Best Practices around security policy, planning, risk mitigation, governance, tactics, vendors and tools. All of this on an as needed retainer basis. We don’t add to your security infrastructure or cost on a fixed basis. Leverage us, as needed, while improving your ability to mitigate risk.
Feel free to call us about our unique services, our capabilities, our people and our ability to support your growing security needs; without “breaking the bank.”
