The near-continuous pace of cyber attacks and the irreparable damage they can cause to your business requires your organization to continuously monitor your users and assets. And even then, there is no path to absolute protection.

Trexin focuses on pragmatic, effective cybersecurity, starting with an assumption that your systems already have been compromised. This mindset shifts the focus from “prevention/detection” to “detection/response”, keeping your Information Security team focused on continuing business delivery even while compromised in various ways. That is not to say that prevention is no longer crucial—it is. Intelligence collection, monitoring, analysis, diligence, and improvement are never-ending elements of an effective strategy.

The Trexin Cybersecurity domain partners with your organization’s leaders to implement a targeted cybersecurity approach that prioritizes real world threats without introducing a complicated and prohibitively costly security organization or tooling. We help you ensure your cybersecurity investments and strategies are effective and aligned with your industry’s norms.
