Let us protect what's most important to you.


Who Is SERAFEND?

 

SERAFEND was created in response to the growing number of intrusions into companies and organizations that comprise what most people would refer to as the nation's "Critical Infrastructure".  These entities are critical to the continuing operation of our nation and provide the basic necessities of human life. We are committed to helping protect your way of life.

Most of our consultants have had or currently hold high level government clearances with experience in the intelligence community, energy and finance sectors, and healthcare. We have helped secure highly sensitive government systems and architected secure online systems in the commercial sector.  

Our experts are members of:

InfraGard - A partnership between the FBI and the private sector dedicated to sharing information to prevent hostile acts.

(ISC)2 - International Information System Security Certification Consortium

What can we do for you?

SERAFEND is focused on securing your infrastructure to an acceptable risk level. We are not a one-sized fits all company. We will not build your website, migrate your organization from Windows XP, or rewire your networking closet. What we WILL do is ensure that security is baked into all aspects of your organization throughout all of your projects and initiatives. It is this focus that allows us to deliver quickly and effectively.

The sections below give an introduction to some of our areas of expertise.

 

Secure Architecture Design

Security should never be an after-thought in today's tumultuous online climate. By integrating secure design practices and architectural decisions into the bedrock of your IT project or enterprise system, you will be better positioned to protect yourself from the next headline grabbing intrusion.

Incident response

Typically the first indication that an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) or State Sponsored group has targeted your organization is a phone call from the FBI or DHS. They will tell you that you have been 'hacked', and that they found your corporate secrets on one of their monitored systems. This is a very stressful event that we have seen on multiple occasions. Our consultants have successfully worked with companies in this very position that ranged from small non-profits to large utility companies. We have the experience to remediate this situation quickly and quietly.

Security Audits & Assessments

All systems should be audited on a regular basis to ensure that your security policies are being adhered to and that no one has obtained unauthorized access.  Our specialists can perform routine audits to take away the worry that something may happen.

Security Awareness Education

Years of experience in corporate environments as well as in the Intelligence Community has shown us that most intrusions begin inside your corporate infrastructure. This can be from phishing scams to simple password guessing. Let us provide your staff with the security know-how that is necessary to help stop this frontline attack vector.


Defense Is Key

Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack.”
