Information Security Made Easy

How is your company going to keep up with the constantly changing threat landscape? How do you know where to start with security or where you currently stand?

A comprehensive strategic security assessment is the answer.

Sword & Shield Enterprise Security’s Strategic Security Assessment (SSA) service is a comprehensive analysis of every aspect of your business as it relates to security. From hiring practices to physical and network security, Sword & Shield partners with you to thoroughly assess the maturity of your security posture.

This analysis provides the critical insight and information you need in order to develop the most effective strategy possible for your organization.

Cybersecurity Experience Matters

A thorough and accurate assessment requires an in-depth understanding of all aspects of security and how it will affect your business, as well as knowledge of proven methodologies and best practices. With more than 20 years’ experience and conducting hundreds of security assessments a year, Sword & Shield’s professionals have worked with companies across all industries, environments, and budgets.

Our team of experts applies its depth and breadth of knowledge to analyze every aspect of your organization’s people, processes, and technology as it relates to protecting your information. Then, we work with you to make sure you understand not only what you need to do, but also why you need to do it.
