V3 Cybersecurity, Inc. is a unique company focused on contextualization of security programs from a business perspective. Our decades of experience in working with Fortune ranked clients has taught us that the business of security remains a fairly immature discipline. Despite all of the advances in technical controls and number of new security companies, organizations have a significant gap in understanding and managing the business of security.
As we continue to see performance pressures of the economy hit many security service providers, we see these economic conditions driving behavior and business practices that do not align with our VIRTUE based approach to business. We understand that the very best talent in the security space will require a new type of corporate culture. We believe in transparent and flexible working environment with a focus on VALUE based performance for our clients. Remaining true to our principles over time will ensure that we create an environment to deliver on the VISION of our clients.
