Our team will address your security needs while keeping you within budget.

We Get It… As critical as information security is, not all organizations can justify the additional expense of hiring an internal resource. With the median salary for just one IT security professional ranging from $60,000 to $100,000, adding in benefits, taxes and other expenses, the cost of hiring additional employees can be prohibitive.

Through our Virtual Security and Compliance Consultants (vSCC) the Sword & Shield team will help you ensure that security and compliance continue to be factored into business and technology decisions, while controlling your budget.

In addition, you will have access to an entire team of security professionals with expertise across a wide range of technologies and skills, including network security, compliance, computer forensics and incident response.
