Avalon Cyber, a leading provider of cybersecurity services, and Side Channel Security, experts in CISO, security advisory, and compliance services, today announced an exclusive strategic partnership.
The Side Channel Security team has decades of experience in the public and private sectors working as CISOs for fortune 500 companies. This allows Avalon Cyber to bring a suite of in-demand advisory services such as cyber risk and program assessments, regulatory compliance guidance, virtual CISO, and much more to its clients. Similarly, Side Channel experts will have the ability to engage Avalon Cyber for their clients’ security needs, such as expert incident response services, penetration testing, managed detection and response (MDR), vulnerability assessments, and more.
“Our clients are increasingly in need of executive-level expertise and guidance with security, and the partnership with Side Channel Security will provide the country’s leading consultants to our clients at a fraction of the expense of hiring a CISO full time,” says JP Midgley, CEO of Avalon Cyber.
Brian Haugli, partner at Side Channel Security says, "We're excited to partner with Avalon and offer their services to our clients. They are able to deliver key functions that support our recommendations to reduce risks in organizations we work with."
The staggering statistics in the cybersecurity space continue to worsen. The shortage of cybersecurity professionals is estimated at over a million people and the number of attacks on businesses is projected to continue a several?year increase trend. Avalon Cyber and Side Channel Security have come together to help widen the skills and capabilities of both entities to ultimately provide as much support and protection for the business community as possible.
