Hear From Your Fellow Founders
Trust is a big step to develop, with the best new relationships often starting from recommendations and referrals.
But there’s alot more to gain than just “security”. Hear some stories on the benefits of how “looking professional to your customers” make an amplified difference in how you’re perceived.
“If you show up like every other startup, you’re going to get treated like every other startup. It’s going to be long cycles. And security & compliance is going to block you.”

Frequently Asked Questions
No. Hard no. Trust that you’re bringing in experts that know what they’re doing, and they’ve done this before. We have templates and approaches for everything. Think of it like sending in a SWAT Team – we come in efficient, organized, and on a mission; we’ll let you know when you’re needed. 🙂
We believe that if a CEO “has 5 problems, we’d like to make it 4”. We act as an executive function within your ogranization, and run this top to bottom. Our goal is to free up your teams’ time, and make this as light-weight and easy as possible. There are a few others in the market, whereas we find they provide “support” and “options on how to approach it” – we are of the belief that “you’re not looking for help, you’re looking to make this problem go away”
We work on long-term engagements (12-month contracts). We build, run, maintain, and grow the areas we provide expertise in. Success for us means taking an expertise area fully off your hands, allowing your team to focus where they need to be: on product & customer.
These tools have value, but they do not “build your security program”. They can help streamline an audit, once your entire program is in place. They also require a lot of expertise for “tuning”, as they are very opinionated (since algorithmic), which creates additional work an overhead. There is a time and place for them, but we do not recommend that at the start.
We act as part of your executive org structure, and are your customer-facing point person for anything security related. For security positioning, questions, questionnaires, and even security-related guidance in contracts. It’s not always required, but we find it goes a long way in your sales cycles when your customers see you’ve invested in a CISO; and the trust it can instill in your overall company (beyond just security), with professional executive presence, can be genuinely meaningful.
