About Us

At Security Positive, we understand that change is not always easy. Since 2013, we’ve helped all nonprofits, companies and individuals to become more secure - and stay that way.

We like a challenge.

We like complex cases. Got a really tough problem? High-stakes work? Really resistant colleagues? Googled and googled and can’t find an answer? We have the background and expertise to figure out a solution.

We don’t trust all-male security teams.

Studies show that women have a more nuanced sense of risk. Yet, in an exploding cybersecurity field, women hold steady at just 13% representation. More diverse teams are better at estimating and mitigating risks.

We focus on the underserved.

We provide cybersecurity for women, young folks, and people of color, sexual minorities, and other marginalized groups. While our colleagues in technology and cybersecurity don’t see or believe their needs, we know we learn as much about security from these clients as we teach them.

Our team of experts is ready to help you develop strategies to not just survive, but to thrive. Contact us to see how.
