Rapid Strategy was established to fill the gaps in cybersecurity by standardizing what it means to implement and deliver cybersecurity effectively. Two highly accomplished professionals, both experts in various fields, set out on a mission to solve the ever-growing and ever-costly issues surrounding cybersecurity practices.
Rapid Strategy blossomed by bridging over 40+ years of government and commercial experiences and skillsets stemming from executive security leaders and security architects to senior engineers and masters of agile delivery. We believe that it is one thing to know what to do, but it is another thing to get it done.
