Slavick explains that Guy Brown, an office products and workplace supplies company, was looking to solve cybersecurity problems. This included right-sizing their PCI scope and completing a PCI self-assessment. Guy Brown also needed a business continuity plan.
According to Slavick, the company had several Fortune 500 customers requiring Guy Brown to have a business continuity plan to continue doing business with the organization.
Slavick points out, “In today’s age every customer we deal with is requiring us to meet their level of security…[they] require us to meet every standard they meet.”
Guy Brown is a small company, so it needed an outside information security and compliance consulting firm to help get it where it needed to be.
Slavick says Sword & Shield’s consultative approach was much more effective than the cookie-cutter approach other firms offered. He feels Guy Brown ended up with a better solution at a lower cost.
“At Guy Brown, we are very proud of our culture,” says Slavick. “We felt like Sword & Shield shared those same values.”
