Risk Analysis and Plan

Did you know that over half of all cyber attacks target small businesses? And nearly 7 in 10 of those businesses suffered an attack in the last year? On the low end of the average these data breaches cost your company $120,000, yikes!

That’s pretty scary. Take a deep breath, keep calm, and carry on. Leave that concern to us. It’s our job. Certainly take it seriously though.

Not sure where to begin? We’ve got you covered there too. Just ask us for our Risk Analysis and Plan (RAP). We will work together to get a holistic view of your current security posture with recommended solutions to improve what matters.


If your company works in Accounting, Engineering, or Software Development, then you’re already among clients in the fields we’ve helped succeed.

Does your company have 250 employees or less? Are you looking to grow your business but don’t know the technology and organizational challenges preventing that growth? Do you need to cut costs out of daily work?

If you’re working in one of the following industries, contact us to begin a discovery package to put known solutions to your unknown technology problems. If you are interested in our services but work in a different field, please contact us here to see how we can help.
