Advice You Can Count On!

Secure Ideas' Infosec Advisory service, part of our Professionally Evil Testing as a Service (PETaaS), extends your internal security team, providing timely advice and in-depth insights into your security concerns. We connect with you through direct communication channels such as Slack, making it easier for you to ask questions, vet your approaches, or discuss new technologies in the InfoSec space. Leverage our deep expertise to strengthen your security posture.


Challenges to Overcome

Today's business environment is faced with ever-increasing challenges to meet regulatory and shareholder expectations for internal security programs despite a significant shortage of available cyber-security talent in the workforce.  The typical approach to information security training is very tactical in nature, and serves only as an introduction.

To meet this challenge, Secure Ideas has developed a strategic program consisting of mentoring and access to expertise.  This model is similar to a traditional trades-person apprenticeship program, mixing on-the-job training and structured study, and it is built around a set of resources and activities designed to provide ongoing support to grow expertise within organizations.

The primary purpose of this service is obtaining expert guidance when testing, remediating, and understanding information security concepts or issues.  This comprehensive advisory service offers clients numerous benefits for engaging Secure Ideas’ consultants.
