  • A charter, model and framework for cybersecurity governance, strategy and planning
  • A real-time, event-driven approach to addressing threats to and vulnerabilities of that organization’s security processes, supply chain, people and technology
  • Adaptive prevention, detection, response, remediation and prediction functions
  • Advanced technologies and skills leveraged in enhanced automation, analytics and intelligence, delivered via in-house and external means
