Having worked internally for companies holding positions from CIO, CTO and CEO, Dr. Cole knows the challenges and more importantly knows how to resolve those challenges in a cost-effective manner. According to the cybersecurity expert many companies are making a lot of money in cybersecurity, but not providing a lot of value based on the increase in incidents and compromises. Secure Anchor has been setup to help organizations implement effective and cost effective cyber security solutions that actually work. “What does every organization that has had a major breach have in common? They all spent a lot of money on security and were still compromised. Secure Anchor uses it extensive expertise to build custom, effective security solutions that help organizations both prevent and detect attacks in a timely manner,” he adds.

Secure Anchor caters to organizations worldwide and has been termed as a pioneer in offering unique cybersecurity solution and services. In an instance, the company was hired by a research organization that processes over $600 million transactions and they needed to be PCI compliant. The client had brought in 3 prior companies for all of which the client spent several million dollars and several years but the end result was disappointing. Focusing on de-scoping and compensating controls Secure Anchor came in and within 5 months and less than $500k the company had the client fully PCI compliant. “This is when I realized that we had something special and expertise that few other firms had. To be really good at cyber security you not only have to know the technology, but you also have to be creative and think like an executive,” says Dr. Cole.
