Information Security Starts with Well-Equipped Business Leaders

Secure Digital Solutions (SDS) serves diverse clientele—from Fortune 1000 corporations and cooperatives to government agencies, and small to medium businesses—in highly regulated industries such as banking and finance, legal services, healthcare, government and defense, energy, legal services, education, retail, manufacturing, and food distribution.

While we usually work directly with the security or privacy officer, we help all executives responsible for security by integrating operations and GRC under one management plan. The following roles benefit from our Maturity Assessment, Profile, and Plan (MAPP) approach, rapidly conducted with TrustMAPP.

Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs)

CISOs are pulled in multiple directions and hampered by slow, manual processes. SDS uses TrustMAPP® to help CISOs saves time and costs with automated assessments, reporting, and planning—achievable in weeks rather than months. TrustMAPP® helps CISOs quickly become a full strategic partner of senior management.


Whether they supervise a security officer or manage security firsthand, CIOs are often the main advocate for cyber security with the CEO and Board.  Using TrustMAPP® SDS quickly generates real metrics and strategic recommendations that justify highest-priority information security investments.

CEOs and the C-Suite

Senior executives know security is a business issue, but lack meaningful insight into the state of their organization’s security program. SDS provides enterprise-wide assessments and reports, going beyond bits and bytes to identify capacity-building security investments aligned with corporate business objectives.

Boards of Directors (and Risk Management Committees)

Board members bearing legal liability and accountability to shareholders need evidence of sound information security governance—in business language including ROI. SDS helps boards take stock of enterprise risk and compliance programs , perform security diligence, and knowledgeably drive change.

Audit and Compliance Committees

Those who navigate compliance audits need to quickly discover and address potential violations—on a tight deadline. SDS cuts prep time to weeks while providing superior depth by measuring process maturity using the highly-regarded models, the most rigorous standard in the industry.
