Paragon Cyber Solutions is extremely knowledgeable in the Information Security and Assurance field. They executed our independent Assessment & Authorization effort from start to finish which resulted in an Approval to Operate. We highly recommend their services!
Paragon Cyber Solutions serves as the virtual Chief Information Security Officer (vCISO) for our business. We were not aware that such a thing existed but having them available to call on as needed versus having a full-time CISO on staff has proven to be very cost-effective and efficient. Paragon stood up our entire corporate security program and they keep us up-to-date and compliant.
Paragon Cyber Solutions completed all work to transition our system from legacy DIACAP to the Risk Management Framework. Courtney setup the project plan, worked directly with our engineering staff, and showed true authority and leadership resulting in a successful effort.
Paragon Cyber Solutions conducted a vulnerability assessment on our network and really opened our eyes to security weaknesses that we were not aware of. From that point, they created a remediation plan and worked with us on implementing an in-depth corporate security program. They also completed a lengthy vendor security questionnaire for us. We feel ahead of the game now. Job well done!
