What's Hot At Coquina

Increased Importance and Demand for Cyber Risk and Security Services

By the end of 2020, security services are expected to account for 50% of cybersecurity budgets according to Gartner’s cyber security mid-year snapshot report.  This combined with the fact that cybersecurity has become even more important with the massive growth in digital business and the massive shift to remote work, makes it a high priority for our partners. From assessments to health checks, Coquina Systems has an extensive network of credentialed professionals to evaluate the risk and security readiness of our partners’ clients.

Compliance and Risk Readiness Assessments

Assessing risk and evaluating how prepared an organization will be in the event of an attack is paramount. Our teams work with key stakeholders to conduct workshops, inventory systems, policies, procedures and controls including existing security capabilities, data protection capabilities and access controls to make recommendations and prepare for security solution implementations.
