Information-Security Support for the Public and Private Sectors

While it’s true that public and private sector organizations differ greatly in size, mission, constituency, and budget funding, all share the critical, two-fold need to secure data and pass a compliance audit. None are immune to criminal cyber-attack or exempt from following regulated security requirements--and all require help passing their IT compliance audit.

It’s also true that organizations seeking support for these needs have a great many choices of information-security (infosec) providers. However, not all providers are the same.

The secret to success is finding one that can not only work seamlessly with your executives or IT team, as Singular Security does, but also understand your operations and organizational challenges--especially your regulatory environment.

Security-industry certifications and membership, as well as demonstrated leadership within reputable, relevant security organizations also provide a reliable measure on a security provider’s knowledge and experience.
