Consummate InfoSec Professional

Michael Scheidell is a great example of a consummate information security professional. Michael contributed a great deal to the successful implementation of our Information Security Program at Banco Internacional De Costa Rica when I was the V.P. of IT at that institution. Michael understands the importance of identifying the risk inherent on a network infrastructure, but more importantly, he is able to design and implement solutions that would minimize those risks to an acceptable level.

A Security Privateers Information Security Assessment is a thorough, affordable means of evaluating your overall security posture in order to identify vulnerabilities and make informed remediation decisions, guided by years of experience and expertise—and in doing so ensure your networks and systems remain protected from the rising tide of cybercrime.

Cybercrime is not only relentless—it is staggeringly expensive. Recent data suggests that cybercrime costs U.S. businesses $1.3 Billion annually, while global estimates place the worldwide cost in excess of $3 Trillion. Security breaches occur and are publicized almost daily, with consequences that range from unbudgeted client notification programs and credit monitoring services, to costly remediation and upgrade activities, to fines and lost business. 

With threats evolving daily, effective information security is a necessity for organizations entrusted with the personal information of clients, partners, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders. 

Our Security Privateers have a proven track record in providing superior security solutions for business, based on a keen understanding of the dynamic security landscape, new frontiers in cyberthreats, and evolving regulatory mandates.  We appreciate that businesses cannot thrive without adequate safeguards against both internal and external threats, and we are adept at assisting clients in their ongoing challenge to neutralize cybercrime, in all its forms, in order to protect the personal and financial assets of stakeholders as well as their own brands and reputations—without having to sacrifice the ability to conduct business conveniently and speedily.
