About us

Remedia Security is a leader in helping organizations build and mature information security programs.

We work with you to build a security culture that supports and enables the business while minimizing risk. Security culture is an important factor in sustaining a security strategy and requires a governance program that communicates the strategic vision and continuously monitors the execution.

Our custom approach begins with meeting the business. We address the root of security program problems as opposed to focusing on symptoms. This results in a self-sustaining program that transcends changes in strategic goals, threat landscape, and employee turnover. We help you develop a strategy and provide techniques to foster a strong security culture.
