Critical Start was founded on a very simple concept - manage your security, don’t let it manage you. Most customers spend plenty of money on compliance, risk, and security products. However, the cost of compliance (money and time) consumes resources that should be directed towards protecting critical assets and personnel. The reality is that compliance regulations are a reactive response to yesterday’s threats. Compliance should be completed quickly and cost effectively, while consuming as few people resources as possible. The savings from smarter compliance should be applied to controls that actually protect critical assets and people.
