If you run a business,
you need an
annual cybersecurity risk assessment.
Which one are you?
Small business owner
I need to stay compliant. My business is straightforward. I don’t want to spend $5K on a cybersecurity risk advisor; I just want to meet legal requirements — and know I’m actually protected against cyber threats.
Your main concern may be compliance, but you don’t want to get hacked either.
You’ve heard about cyber attacks and you know that if it happened to you, it could be disastrous.
You’re not confident about your cyber security protection but you don’t know what to do about it. You’ve thought about doing a risk assessment, but you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on it each year.
In-house IT manager
I need to keep my company secure. My job is to identify + organize risks, then give clear, standards-based recommendations. But I worry: am I taking the right steps? Is the company really protected from hackers?
Your clients rely on you for security, but it’s not your thing. So you cobble together software, spreadsheets, and docs to conduct risk assessments — and hope for the best.
In place of one streamlined platform, you rely on multiple back-and-forth emails to collect data and evidence.
You’ve wasted hours navigating clunky software that left you with confusing, hard-to-action results.
You need a simple, reliable solution that actually PROTECTS your client — and makes you look good.
Managed IT Service Providers
My clients need reliable
risk assessments. I’m no cybersecurity expert, but I want to be able to handle the process without spending hours chasing evidence or
You need to meet compliance and mitigate risks — but you wish you could do that without spending weeks on the assessment or annoying all your colleagues. Plus, you’ve got other IT responsibilities on your plate.
And while you think you know what you’re doing, you’re not really sure. Because you trained in IT — not cyber security.
The problem: if something goes wrong, you’re still going to be held accountable.
You don’t want a degree in
Cybersecurity Alphabet Soup.
You just want to know:
a. You're compliant
b. You're protected from threats
C. You can let go of this burden and focus on running your business
