WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE TRULY SECURE? Being secure is more than installing the latest tool or technology, adequate training, complying with the latest regulations, or achieving a high FISMA score.
The reality is being truly secure is different in every organization - forcing predefined security solutions or canned methods into an organization is a recipe for failure. At Northramp, we understand that truly effective cybersecurity strikes a delicate balance of securing an organization’s data while not hindering the effectiveness of the organization. We provide instead a range of highly tailored cybersecurity capabilities designed to meet our client’s specific and evolving cybersecurity landscapes.
