Cybersecurity and IT Consulting and Services Tailored to your Business
"One size does not fit all"
Cybersecurity incidents — not IF, but WHEN
Cybersecurity and privacy are high priorities for businesses given the proliferation of attacks and increasing costs of response and recovery. It is no longer a question of IF you will experience a breach, but WHEN. The average cost of a breach was $3.86 million in 2019 trending up yearly with 2020 representing a huge spike. In regulated markets such as healthcare, the costs are much higher due to regulatory fines for each affected person. This is a massive liability that has created client and investor pressure — planning, processes, and practices can reduce your risk and the cost of a breach, including the overall business impact.
Cylidify provides consulting, services, and referrals or brokering to meet any cybersecurity and privacy needs. Our focus is on businesses developing or integrating software and services, or handling personal or sensitive data. However, we can help any technology business including within the public cloud (e.g. administration of IT services such as Microsoft 365 and Google G Suite). Each Cylidify engagement is tailored to your business or market, but aligned to a shared baseline or recognized framework such as NIST’s Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. Our founders and principals have many years of technical and leadership experience gained while working in enterprises such as Microsoft and in regulated markets like healthcare. Our intent is to make cybersecurity and privacy broadly accessible and fairly priced — providing enterprise capabilities "right sized" for small to medium sized businesses. Cylidify offers a breadth of capabilities with depth in verticals like healthcare, mobile devices, IoT, and "cloud" (either public clouds from Azure and AWS or private cloud hybrids).
We are ready to engage! All interactions are kept confidential — our pledge is to listen and understand before offering guidance or solutions. Contact us to learn more or schedule time to discuss your specific needs.
Approach and Methodology
At Cylidify, we are direct and candid, but always constructive and non-judgmental. We tell you what you need to hear versus what you want to hear while maintaining discretion and confidentiality. Our approach is to develop a deep, shared understanding of the risks and issues, then work with you on planning and tailored remediation or mitigation. We are technical, but agile and adept at balancing across the capability, risk, privacy, and legal/compliance aspects of your business. Our tendency is to "people and processes" over "tools and platforms" (and automation), but we strive for balance while advocating for agility via baked-in versus bolted-on approaches. Whether we engage tactically or strategically, it will always be tailored and value focused.
