Why We're Different
Humble. Approachable. Credible. Unlike many small businesses that claim they know cybersecurity, Cyber COAST has been working in cybersecurity for more than 20 years. We’ve seen success. We’ve seen failure. We've literally been to war in cyberspace. Our methods have been purpose-built from these lessons to provide lasting value to our clients. We don't bring an army of high priced consultants. We just bring the things that work—we succeed when you are secure and know you have a systematic security program.
Born out of U.S. military innovation, the Cyber COAST team understands the theory, strategy, and application of effective cybersecurity programs. Our innovative approaches come from our hard-earned experience developing USCYBERCOM strategy, directing multi-national cyber operations, planning cyber force training, and implementing major programs for the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Justice. We don’t stop at great ideas and recommendations. We do our best work "in the trenches" with our clients implementing pragmatic and lasting solutions. The result: delivering tangible and measurable business results.
Our vision is to build long-term customers by first understanding their mission requirements, collaboratively identifying a strategy for improvement using the Cyber COAST approach to cybersecurity, and then delivering increasing value—every day!
