A-Jay Orr . PMP . Strategic Advisor

Cyber Security, Information Security & Management

Veteran & 3x Award Winning Author

A-Jay is an award-winning Cybersecurity leader helping growing businesses maximize their use of technology and protect their digital assets to ensure that seemingly small things, don’t create huge vulnerabilities, that ultimately end up costing them millions in both capital and reputation.

 

WHO I WORK WITH

I work with high performing businesses that value their reputation and the work that they do, too much to let a data breach ruin it and put their business in jeopardy.

 

WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT

The reason businesses struggle with cybersecurity is because they think it is an “IT” issue. By approaching cybersecurity as a digital risk management function for the business, I’m able to reveal and address the digital vulnerabilities that exist outside of the IT department.

 

WHY IT WORKS

Businesses are using technology to increase efficiency, increase performance and to gain a competitive edge in their market. 

 

SERVICES I PROVIDE

  • Assessment of people and systems to uncover the digital risks that exist within your business

  • Ongoing training to educate your staff on how to avoid the latest criminal tactics

  • Regular testing to strengthen your security culture

  • Constantly scan the dark web to ensure your company’s credentials haven't been compromised

  • Provide real-time detection of both internal and external threats against your company
