Aligning Security with Business Objectives

Our goal is to help companies direct the most rigorous processes towards development and maintenance of its stated mission. We help clients determine how to integrate RMF activities into the system life cycle. We work with the Program Manager to implement an RMF that prioritize their business risks and assets, and help them plan strategies, and roll out tactical plans that align with the company’s business objectives.
