Security Engineering

To cultivate a strong cybersecurity posture, organizations cannot treat security like an afterthought: rather, they must arm themselves with the tools required to prevent breaches within a certain risk tolerance, and build trustworthy systems that incorporate security controls by design. 

These goals fall under the domain of "security engineering," which ensures your IT systems and assets are optimized to meet security requirements that satisfy your business needs and stakeholder requirements. But optimization for your unique infrastructure is rarely a priority for cybersecurity vendors, leaving many organizations with poorly implemented tools.

With years of experience serving large federal agencies and private industry partners with secure IT services, DataLock provides the expertise you need to acquire the right tools for your cybersecurity needs, implement them, and ensure that your systems are secure by design - not as an afterthought.
