Your Revenue and Profit

How do you make money and what effort is needed to identify weaknesses and threats that could restrict you from executing your strategy?

Decisions driven by knowledge are superior to those induced by fear.

Developing and leveraging resources to achieve results is core to business success, just as misaligned investments are often wasteful.

Impact and Duration of Loss Events

No one sees business disruption coming. When it happens, leaders are not prepared.

That is why prudent leadership teams embrace their responsibility for building trust. The competitive advantage of responsibly developed and well-defined strategic plans is that adopters outperform their peers who fail to execute.

We focus on the most important to you, as co-developed strategies and security plans reduce the impact and duration of loss events. 

Understand - Adjust Efforts - Reallocate Resources

You can limit business disruption and financial losses caused by asset exposure.

The criminal exploits of U.S. manufacturers and supply chains continue to be an injustice.

Are you prepared?

The secure transition process will repurpose cash flow, energy, and time to improve the financial health of your organization.

Your Advantage With SPOT-Beam™

Clarity provides accountability and predictability.

Your daily decisions impact the organization.

Enhancing value creation starts with defining your Specific Points of Truth (SPOT), evaluating the impact of these future actions, and then acting on a narrow grouping (Beam) of resource allocations intended to maximize value and reduce liabilities.

The documented truth provided by the SPOT-Beam™ process allows executives to better direct resources (capital, time, people) confidently. The planning process laser cuts years of assumptions as confidential discussions increase shared knowledge.

It is true; you don’t know what you don’t know.

SPOT-Beam™ is a trust-building verification process that allows boards and executive leadership to determine risk and reward improvements based on probable loss, cash flow, and the desired pace of change.

This proven process allows you to prioritize cyber threats with the highest business impact, safeguarding your critical assets and reputation from malicious exploitation.

Shared Understanding

Shared knowledge is a force multiplier and the first step to reducing the impact and duration of loss events.

Then resources are allocated to vital asset protection priorities that strengthen your workflows and customers’ trust.

Reduce the cost and duration of loss events to keep your business profitable.

Certitude Security® works with scaling and mid-market leadership teams to co-develop security strategies to protect and grow your business.

In a similar manner in which forecasts can be inaccurate, so is your understanding of loss exposure. Your path to success and profitability includes isolating assets to maintain operational stability. 

This knowledge enables leadership teams to make more effective decisions and focus resources on probable threats to assets that are likely to cause loss.
