Unitas Global – From Compliance Needs to a Proper Cybersecurity Infrastructure


Unitas Global is a leading cloud solution provider that builds custom, highly secure cloud-based IT environments that are easy-to-consume, fully managed and backed by an end-to-end SLA. They are headquartered in Los Angeles, with clients and locations spanning the globe.

The challenge

Unitas Global realized the need for ISO27001 and SOC2 certifications within a tight timeframe. To assess their cybersecurity approach, Cyber Defense Group conducted a comprehensive evaluation from both administrative and technical perspectives. Identifying areas for improvement, they devised a strategy that fortified Unitas’s people, processes, and technology seamlessly, without disrupting operations.

During this period, Unitas experienced exponential growth, presenting a challenge in mapping assets and assigning responsibility, as well as effectively reporting compliance to stakeholders. Given Unitas’s agile startup nature with enterprise clients, it was crucial to possess a profound understanding of business processes to minimize the impact of necessary changes and program implementation on critical functions.

The solution

Cyber Defense Group diligently established comprehensive policies and procedures, beginning with a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment, that not only met the rigorous criteria of these two security standards, but also fostered robust cybersecurity across the organization.

As a result, Unitas can now confidently support their clients’ missions with enhanced security measures, while fearlessly venturing into new avenues of revenue generation.

  • Within a single year, two significant compliance standards were achieved: SOC2 and ISO27001
  • Transitioning the internal Information Security Management System (ISMS) from an ad-hoc state to a managed state signifies its maturity.

After collaborating with Unitas for multiple years and providing assistance in the development and management of their ISMS, Cyber Defense Group has transitioned the operational responsibilities to internally qualified employees. Moving forward, Cyber Defense Group will continue to play a crucial role by offering high-level strategic advisory services to the company.
