“After years of attending meetings to debate a variety of cyber and physical security issues related to networked, cloud-based, mobile, SCADA, Internet of Things, and stand-alone platforms, I grew to appreciate the complexities of security decision-making and the need for practical guidance on the topic of cyber risk management. A company CEO once told me “If you ever tell me no, I’ll fire you! Your job is not to tell me what I can’t do, but to tell me how I can do what I want as securely as possible!”. Sugpiat Defense, LLC offers services designed to help organizations demystify and manage cyber risk. Are you tired of IT fire-fighting and business uncertainty? Are security “no” decisions impacting your mission or business goals? We can help!”
