Cybersecurity

Overview

Cyber attacks are one of the biggest threats to government operations today and the security of government information systems is an urgent focus for agency leaders and technical experts. But for many, the response to cybersecurity has too often been to throw money and technology at the problem without paying the proper attention to preparing the organization and agency leaders for new cybersecurity practices and revising governance structures to make better risk-based decisions.

Lafayette Group brings together the experience of cybersecurity trainers, risk management consultants, strategy and communications specialists, and policy experts to provide the highest quality cybersecurity support. Lafayette Group thrives on helping leaders and managers improve cybersecurity readiness at all levels of their organizations.

We aim to make cybersecurity straightforward and accessible. Furthermore, we provide hands-on, in-the-field training and exercises to ensure your entire organization is cyber ready and can continue to build the capacity and maturity of your cybersecurity program.

By defining a concrete strategic direction aligned with their mission and vision, our clients are able to outline measurable goals to reduce cybersecurity risk without impeding operations or breaking their budgets.
