Here is why you should put Information Security first for your business

Information security goes well beyond technology.

Secure Shield fits the bill across all aspects of information security (Administrative, Physical, and Technical), without unnecessary complexity

our unique approach

What Makes Us Different?

Our Mission

Our mission at Secure Shield is to fix the broken information security industry. We work with you to solve as many weaknesses as we can in your security environment. Being with organizations before, during, and after a breach is the only way we can truly improve their security and protect the sensitive information entrusted to them.

Our Style

There is no such thing as a “cookie cutter” approach with information security. Each organization is different, and every security program is at a different stage of maturity. We get to know your business intimately, use an information security risk assessment to inform your team what your strengths and weaknesses are, and then apply industry best practices to help you make improvements.

Universal Assessments

We don’t like how the industry measures information security risk, so we developed our own assessment. Our unique risk assessment methodology is based on NIST, maps to every major industry standard, and extends far beyond simple technical IT controls.

Product Agnostic

We do not sell any third-party products, and information security is all we do. You can be confident that we are not out to sell you the perfect “stack”, or push you towards tools you do not understand or need. Our advice will always be made with improving your security program. We will never recommend hardware or software unless it’s what’s best for your organization.

Companies Who Have Put Their Trust In Us

“Since our industry is so highly regulated, we wanted to be sure our security was performing as well as it possibly could. We are subject to customer audits, and Secure Shield helped us strengthen our policies and operating procedures to frame us in the best light with our clients. There is a lot of depth to their background in information security and physical security. They know how to provide full coverage and give good suggestions to eliminate gaps.”

What Drives Us Crazy: The Blinky Lights Syndrome

When Secure IT Systems decided to move away from the MSP space to focus solely on Information Security, it was to help try to fix a broken information security industry.
