Changing technologies, new vulnerabilities, and regulatory compliance.
Just a few things the Guide Star team loves to discuss over coffee.

If technology is essential to your business, so is cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity remains one of the most pressing IT issues today. Most CIOs recognize cybersecurity as a top-five business issue.

Focused on security for the unique needs of small and medium businesses, Guide Star understands the importance of aligning related spending to each customer's budget. We are technology agnostic, so we don’t resell security hardware or software. We can assist with augmenting your existing cyber program or implement an entirely new program, depending on your needs. We offer advisory services, and can help craft materials that can explain business impacts to board members and executives along with the best path forward.

Cybersecurity Assessments

In-house IT teams may not have the cybersecurity expertise or the time it takes to monitor threats 24/7, so a Cybersecurity Assessment from Guide Star can help identify security gaps. Our assessments provide a 360-degree view of your organization's risk. Taking proactive steps to mitigate identified risks can mean the difference between a data breach or business as usual. Here's a brief overview of what our assessment includes:
