At CDG, we protect our clients from cyber criminals, and we create robust security programs which can withstand current and future Cybersecurity threats.
CISOs don’t always get the in-house resources they need to properly secure the organization. They face gaps in team size, gaps in experience and gaps in overall effectiveness. And that’s when the questions start. Where can I turn for help? Who can I trust? What am I getting for my money?
For a long time now, companies have been answering the first question by turning to the big security consulting firms. And what they get in return are a lot of bodies on site and a lot of billable hours. Unfortunately, the big consulting firms haven’t done a very good job of answering question two and haven’t even attempted to answer question three, because they can’t.
The Evolution of Outcomes-based Security
We started Cyber Defense Group (CDG) to answer questions two and three. When it comes time for cybersecurity consulting services, you need to know who you can trust. And one of the ways to do that is to let you know what you’re getting for you money.
Imagine your organization is just starting down the road to ISO 27001 certification. Wouldn’t it be nice to know ahead of time what it will cost and how long it will take? With no surprises? That’s outcomes-based security. At CDG you don’t pay for hours; you pay for results. And in the cybersecurity industry, that’s unique.
If you’ve been paying attention you know that there’s gold rush in the security industry today. There are too many companies, with undifferentiated offerings, hoping to cash in on the FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) that permeates most companies. We get it; you feel overwhelmed. But, how do you avoid simply picking the company with the biggest marketing budget?
We built CDG around the philosophy of outcomes-based security because we understand purchasing cybersecurity consulting doesn’t do you any good unless you tie it to business outcomes. Outcomes like incident resolution in under 4 hours and implementing an incident response (IR) program in under 60 day.
So, if you want to know who you can trust, ask good questions. Questions like what is the deliverable, when can I expect it and how much will it cost? If you can’t get the answers to those questions, you have to wonder. With CDG, you’ll never wonder.
CDG was created in Los Angeles, California in 2016 to address the growing demand for experienced cybersecurity consulting for cloud-native companies. We recognized early on that there was a gap between the outdated template-driven cybersecurity services model and the unrepeatability of boutique consultancies. We bridge this gap by giving you the tools you need to manage their own cybersecurity environments, while educating you every step along the way. And of course, you get outcomes-based deliverables.
We are the trusted security advisor to many leading organizations across the globe, working with our clients to deliver a holistic approach to cybersecurity. We seek to understand every layer of your organization’s current security posture and assist you in creating a tailored information security strategy–one aligned to your business objectives and the regulatory requirements which affect your business. We invite you to learn more about our team.
