Program Planning, Design and Leadership

Most organizations are aware of the strategic importance of cybersecurity in the hyper connected world of today. The threat landscape encompasses geopolitical cyber warfare, organized crime, malicious insiders, hacktivism, unscrupulous competitors, intellectual theft, increasing natural disasters and unintentional human error. Studebaker Cyber’s mission is to work alongside our customers through the stages of threat awareness, preparedness, resilience and battle-tested disaster response within the context of an adaptive, well-governed cybersecurity program.

Cybersecurity starts with committed and tangible executive support and requires effective leadership at all levels. The function of Cybersecurity is all too often viewed as an information technology matter and, as a result, the organizational response is typically biased towards countering cyber threats with information technology solutions and within the information technology domain.

Studebaker Cyber understands the organizational wide nature of cyber vulnerabilities and is uniquely qualified to support your executive leadership with its endeavors to protect company strategic assets against cyberattacks. The first step is the joint development of strategies, plans and effective interventions that provide cover for the needs of the entire organization. This involves leadership at all levels and will result in a well-crafted holistic and balanced response to cybercrime threats. Studebaker Cyber is ideally positioned to be a trusted advisor that can, in addition to cyber-related skills, offer independent views, appropriate intelligence and practical solutions in an environment where accountabilities and responsibilities are clear and transparent. An effective response will require competent leadership and technical resources as well as governance structures that are both enabling and supporting. Studebaker Cyber can also provide your organization with recruitment assistance, skills training, executive consulting, and academic partnerships.
