Strategy Assessment

The common objective of a strategy assessment is to evaluate the efficacy and cohesiveness of your existing cybersecurity program, and provide you the high level clarity needed to consistently reduce ambiguity, optimize proportionality, and increase decision quality in your security planning, and as a result enhance your operational excellence.

Whether you are a Corporate Director, CEO, CTO or CISO, we tailor our strategy assessments to your individual requirements. The framework of a typical assessment is as follows: we begin with rigorous scoping and strategy definition, supported by targeted data collection, followed by structured analysis. These steps form the basis of our competing hypotheses generation, problem definition, and joint-discovery process. From there we diverge from mainline strategy studies and build industry benchmarking and strategy models to assess against expectations with simulations, decision cases, exercises and cyber wargaming.

Strategy Development

Strategy development lifecycle management is the lynchpin that is missing from most cybersecurity programs. A properly managed cybersecurity strategy gives you the power and flexibility to align your operations and tactics to prevent breaches in a rapidly evolving information environment.

Strategy development projects begin with our unique approach to strategy lifecycle modeling and mapping and dynamic strategy model curation. We inventory, study, verify and validate security capabilities at the strategic, operational and tactical layers and map our findings at the systems of systems view.

With the resulting strategy map, we perform structured analyses to identify sensitivities, cascading effects, dependencies, strengths, weakness, and opportunities, and focus in on strategic intervention points for outsized return on security investments.

Finally, we test strategic approaches identified by our analyses, usually in three rounds. Our testing methods differ from client to client, but whether it's cyber wargaming, technical simulations or decision cases, the objective is the same: to enable freedom of action to your business while denying the same to adversaries with an empirical, repeatable but agile methodology that enhances decision quality in the long view.

"Without competitors there would be no need for strategy, for the sole purpose of strategic planning is to enable the company to gain, as efficiently as possible, a sustainable edge over it's competitors."
— Kinichi Ohmae
“One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.”
— Arnold H. Glasow
"Strategy is a system of expedients. It is more than science, it is the translation of science into practical life, the development of an original leading thought in accordance with the ever-changing circumstances."
— Helmuth von Moltke (Spenser Wilkinson Translation, 1918)
"Whenever I run into a problem I can’t solve, I always make it bigger.  I can never solve it by trying to make it smaller, but if I make it big enough, I can begin to see the outlines of a solution."
— Dwight D. Eisenhower  
"If you think cryptography is the answer to your problem, then you don't know what your problem is."
