The cybersecurity experts
Meet Your Cybersecurity Team
Yes, we are the technology geeks. The technology geeks with a cybersecurity hammer. And we know how to swing it.
At CyberNINES we are on a mission to not only bring your business up to mandated federal compliance but to use our tools and best cybersecurity practices to help your business do more business.
And our partnerships like with Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership and Enterprise Minnesota put us in a unique position deliver on that mission. You see, we know cybersecurity but we also know cybersecurity as it pertains specifically to the manufacturing of DoD contracted projects.
What that means for you is not only do we ensure your compliance to help you shield your business and our country from hackers with nefarious plans, we can help you attain new levels of compliance that could open doors to receiving more DoD contracts (whether you are a Prime or subcontractor). Two birds, one stone.
So, just exactly who are these cybersecurity experts that’ll keep the cyber thieves at bay while offering a way to help you secure more work? Allow us to introduce ourselves.
