Icon Security Program Leadership Lg

We provide cybersecurity leadership and teams to advance your security objectives at a fraction of the costs of hiring full-time security experts.  


Security needs to be integrated with the business’s goals, priorities, and operational processes. To do that effectively, you need security experts with a deep understanding of how to align security best practices with your organization’s mission and objectives.

Full-time, highly-qualified information security officers and teams are expensive and in high demand. Relying on non-skilled personnel to fulfill these critical roles puts your reputation and revenue at risk.


We improve your IT security capabilities through:

Fractional CISO

We collaborate with IT and business stakeholders to drive strategy and initiatives to mature your security program.

Security Program Development

We help you develop a security strategy, manage security gaps, document policies and procedures, and create a plan of actions and milestones.

Security Framework Advice

We give you access to our experts in industry frameworks including: NIST Cybersecurity Framework, SP 800-53, 800-171, CMMC, ISO 27001, CSC, and other models to develop the best approaches for your business.

Icon Integrated Risk Management Lg

We first seek to understand your business then help you efficiently protect it.  


The business drives security. There is little need for security if your organization can’t effectively serve its customers and generate revenue. That’s why we take a risk management approach to security. Not only does this align investment in security controls with your valued data assets and business risks, but it also helps employees understand their role in safeguarding the organization.


We help you approach security from a risk management perspective through:

Risk Assessment & Strategy

We know that it is important to understand your risks and to measure the effectiveness of your risk management strategy, and provide leading methodologies that help you demonstrate progress.

Data Protection & Governance

CREO understands that data is the lifeblood of most organizations, and we focus on understanding what the most important data is, where it resides, and how it flows before defining a plan for protecting it.

Culture Transformation

We have seen firsthand how the best security controls will fail if people don’t understand their roles and expectations. We take time to understand your users and provide engaging and impactful security training that connects.

We help protect your organization from persistent cyber threats so you can focus on driving your business.


Cyber attackers are always improving their techniques, and they never sleep. Vulnerabilities such as software bugs and system misconfigurations provide an open door for attackers to exploit. Staying ahead of attackers is a tall order, and not all businesses can afford the resources to monitor for threats around the clock.

Managed Detection and Response Services

We provide 24 x 7 monitoring of your networks, endpoints, and cloud environments to help you detect, investigate, and eradicate cyber-threats.

Incident Response Preparedness

We define and test your incident response procedures to ensure stakeholders know their roles and responsibilities to quickly respond to cyber-attacks and data breaches.

Penetration Tests

We test your security controls using sophisticated tools and social engineering techniques used by attackers to identify and correct vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

Icon Regulatory Compliance Lg

Our experienced security compliance experts can help you efficiently comply with regulatory requirements appropriate for your business needs.  


Regulations are rapidly raising corporate security and privacy expectations to protect the rights of individuals and their data. Your customers likely have their own compliance requirements and expect you to demonstrate your security posture is similarly aligned with these regulations. Many regulations have complex and overlapping security requirements that can be difficult to reconcile, and penalties for non-compliance can be substantial.


We help you achieve your compliance objectives efficiently and effectively:

Compliance Strategy

We first aim to understand your holistic compliance needs. We then design compliance approaches that can be applied across multiple regulations, saving you time and money.

Audit Readiness Assessments

We provide assessment services to test your security posture before enduring a costly audit. And we can serve as your security point of contact and advisor during audits.

Security and Privacy Regulations Advice

We are experts in GDPR, CMMC, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, SOC 2, and 21 CFR Part 11, so you can be confident that your compliance efforts are appropriately informed and optimized.

Icon Cloud Security Lg

Our cloud security experts help you protect your valued data and applications so you can focus on the benefits of the cloud.


While cloud computing, storage, and Microsoft 365 offer many improved security controls, they also introduce risks that are often not well understood.  Organizations using cloud service providers often have a false sense of security by assuming that the provider is protecting their mission-critical systems and data assets.  Your cloud security is only as effective as your systems are architected, designed, and configured, and many of these responsibilities remain with your organization. ​


We help protect your cloud environment through:

Advising for Cloud

We create a cloud security strategy and migration plan that reduces risks of interruption or data compromise.

Cloud Security Review

We assess your current cloud architecture and configurations for security effectiveness and recommend improvements.​

SaaS Security Assessment

We conduct security assessments of your software-as-a-service (SaaS) vendors to ensure they are storing and protecting critically sensitive data assets for both you and your customers.
