Organizations and businesses today are faced with a complex sea of data. Our approach adapts to your needs, allowing us to start as broad or as focused as needed. We dive into the data quickly and efficiently in order to bring order and clarity to the information that you truly need.
Cyber means many different things to organizations today. After hundreds of projects performing cyber security or open source research and training for customers, we discovered the need to help organizations be better prepared with more than just firewalls and encryption. We do this by arming you with the mindset to draw critical insights from open source information without limiting you to the use of one specific tool or approach. Today, 90% of successful cyber attacks occur because of human error. That same statistic can also provide you with leverage against adversaries or competition. We help you respond to both of those facts.OUR SERVICES
SEcureCog™ was innovated by White Canvas Group, a venture builder that creates technology and provides services for people. We always start our design process by working closely with customers to understand needs that are not being met with current cybersecurity services or approaches. Through our research and hands-on experience, we've uncovered the need for a holistic cyber program that encompasses both technical threats as well as human and reputational threats. SEcureCog was created to fill the gap and empower organizations to secure their cognition, either with a defensive protective posture or with an active, offensive mindset. We live by our mission to put people and their needs at the center of our creation process and continue to innovate and iterate our offerings as the digital threat landscape changes.
