Cyber Security Consulting Ops
We have a passion for helping others secure their assets and data.
We started Cyber Security Consulting Ops because we have a passion for helping others secure their assets and data. We were once victims of a cybersecurity breach. Even though the technology was sparse back in 2007 when we were breached. We were able to kick out the hackers within two days of discovering malicious activities on our devices and network. It took us one week to clean and replaced the devices that were infected by these thieves. This was extremely good for us then when you consider today’s data breach averages 197 from breach to discovery.
What are some challenges you've come across as a black business owner and how did you overcome them?
I think our issue may be what most small businesses are facing today. The more people know about you and the services you offer. The more they will trust you and do business with you. Marketing and connections are our biggest challenges.
What are some of your business's greatest accomplishments?
We were approved by the state of New Jersey to do business internationally. They also provide monetary support to get our business found along with 10 different translations locally and worldwide. This opens the door to talk to other countries' governments and private sectors about our business.
