CyberSix is a Veteran Owned Small Business, created in 1998 by two members of the University of Rhode Island Computer Club, to enhance online gaming and networking security.
CyberSix was incorporated in RI in 2010 under the previous name of NthNet and then again, in 2018 in CT and changed focus to "Cyber Leadership & Watching your Cyber Six," providing the industry and businesses a different way to approach cybersecurity.
CyberSix's first and most fundamental service is the virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO). The vCISO provides executive cyber leadership to assist organizations struggling to get a head of cyber risks and compliance requirements, that may not have the talent or resources. We provide those organizations with prior Fortune 500 CISOs at the fraction of the cost to that of maintaining one or more full-time roles. Our vCISOs have been fully vetted to ensure that they can provide the technical skills, business acumen, innovative thinking and leadership experience needed to traverse today’s digital risks.
CyberSix has also established a Cyber Innovation Center (CIC); through various partnerships, that can reduce the burden organizations experience when looking for new and innovated cybersecurity tools. The CIC lowers a company’s proof of concept time lines, cost, and resource burden and accelerates the “try before you buy” process. On average CISOs and CTOs see as many as ten to fifteen brand new startup companies a week and are constantly pitched by established vendors to try features and functions of newly acquired products. This influx can overwhelm an individual and/or organization and lead to the inability to test new products, thereby lowering the overall efficiency as well reduce or severely inhibit the ability to keep pace with dynamic ever-changing cyber threat landscape.
CyberSix operates and maintains a consortium of dozens of the best and brightest CISO’s in the world. With expertise in almost every market, ranging from SMB Healthcare to Mid-Market Hedge Funds to Big Data and Ad Tech to Fortune 1000, 500 and 100 across all critical verticals. By operating in this capacity, a client organization has access to CISOs that understand its business security needs and compliance requirements.
