Are you experts in information security technology?
Starting with our founder’s degree in computer engineering, technology is at the core of what we do. We work well with Subject Matter Experts (SME) and we have some on our team but most of us don’t consider ourselves technology SMEs.
InfoSec technology gurus put a lot of effort into selecting and configuring the optimal tools. In this they are like diamond cutters who carefully hone their craft. However, by itself, even a perfectly cut diamond isn’t worn to a party.
To be used at all, even in a simple tie tack or stud earring, a diamond needs a setting. The setting is usually made of a metal like gold. However the craft, the tools and the medium of the goldsmith are very different. Gold is soft and fluid when it is shaped; in that way it is similar to the people and processes that are also essential to a successful business change. As Roger Enrico, the Vice Chairman of Pepsico said: “The soft stuff is always harder than the hard stuff.”
Neither diamond cutters nor goldsmiths, SecuriThink practitioners are like jewelers. We have a solid understanding of the crafts of both the diamond cutters and goldsmiths without being SMEs exclusively in either area. We take a carefully configured technology and fit it to a well prepared business setting, creating a high performing solution that gets the best leverage in your unique organization.
While various InfoSec maturity scales do not map directly to the 5 levels of results in SecuriThink methodology, there is a lot of common ground at the highest levels of both.
Our clients engage us to get from one place to another so we might think of an example as “We’re in Chicago and we want you to help us get to San Francisco.” What we’ve learned is that someone who says they’re in Chicago might actually be in St. Louis or maybe even Miami.
SEA is a subset of a SecuriThink engagement strategy. We work in cooperation with existing efforts and leverage them to the fullest extent possible.
Cultural ArmourTM is achieved when InfoSec is deeply embedded in company culture. It means you walk the talk that “information security is everyone’s job”.
SecuriThink senior practitioners are to business transformation specialists as engineers are to physicists. The distinction is one of theory versus applied theory.
Our information security specialty gives SecuriThink a tighter focus than most business transformation efforts. We aim to shift your culture, not turn it inside out. We stay in our lane.
The SecuriThink methodology draws on a bank of over 200 questions from which a dynamic subset is selected for your project.
