understanding of which risks should be accepted, mitigated or transferred. The road to value creation when it comes to cybersecurity and data privacy is what we call digital wellness.
We create value by taking a wellness approach to cybersecurity — to help you understand and mitigate your risks before the worst can happen.
Most Cyber-security programs focus on either on compliance or products. But “check the box” programs or “silver bullet” products aren’t enough to protect your data, your balance sheet or your reputation. Digital wellness is about more than risk awareness — it is about understanding the risks as they relate to your business, communicating those risks in a language you understand and developing a strategy that focuses on creating an environment for the right behaviors to mitigate risk. We are here to provide the right plan, tools and guidance to support you on your path to digital health.
We deliver a human-factored approach to Cyber Risk to help you create Business Value
We focus on creating healthy digital behaviors that translate into real improvements in cyber risk from the board room to the break room. We translate the techno-speak of cyber-security and data privacy in a way that helps you appropriate frame its risk in the context of your business. We help you build a program where cyber risk should is an enabler — not an impediment — to business value. And, we offer this all within an efficient three part annual program which takes a human-factored approach to cyber risk and data privacy strategy, governance and behavior design.

Our Digital Wellness Program provides you with tangible methods to develop and implement effective Cyber Risk strategies, governance and behavior design.
