The Challenge

A software company that serves both Republican and Democratic clients needed to aggressively mature their security program ahead of the 2020 U.S. election. Not only did the software company represent influential candidates on both sides of the political spectrum, but the company had been experiencing rapid growth in the years preceding the election. The client wanted to ensure that they had the security protocols in place to prevent any cybersecurity attacks given the influence of their clients, as well as the risk posed if information got into the wrong hands.

Our Approach:

Kalles Group first conducted an in-depth assessment of the client’s current security in the arenas of people, technology, and processes. Then, Kalles Group developed a roadmap to rapidly address each of these areas and align the client’s employees around a shared security framework.
