Who We Are
BLACKOPS understands the cybersecurity landscape and the cyber-risk oversight needs of boards like no other. We focus our unique capabilities to mitigate risk across the spectrum.
Cyber is a massive, complex and expanding issue that has transformed the speed and impact of risk to directors, senior executives, companies, and shareholders – whether public, private or non-profit.
Years ago, the founders of IBM’s Cyber division and other top experts began researching the root-cause of the cybersecurity issue and concluded that only a true holistic approach will be successful. A multi-disciplinary team of America’s top board-level, thought-leaders from cyber security, national intelligence, national law enforcement, cyber law and management consulting was created to provide world-class, support to boards, C-levels, and the organizations they serve.
Cybersecurity: It’s all we do. We don’t represent products or competing services, keeping us unbiased and focused on our mutual mission.
What We Do
We address the largest threat facing every company and board: cyber risk and economic espionage – or the theft of trade secrets and innovation.
Our board of experts assist your board in ensuring you, your board and your company are protected with the latest full-scale intelligence and protective cyber, organizational and legal practices. Our extended team of experts can also augment existing staff to assess, analyze, and correct the cyber and human weak links, blind spots, and malicious insiders existing in every organization and supply chain. We strengthen and enhance your security position across the spectrum, often transforming cyber security into competitive advantage.
BLACKOPS’ unequaled confluence of disciplines, thought-leadership and 360-degree capability provide ‘tip of the spear’ in front-line protection of boards, C-level executives, their companies’ sensitive data and competitive advantage.
