OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Cyber Dacians?

What was the team composition?

2 technical people.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The outcome was a report that the team provided where we analyzed together, the potential risks and vulnerabilities. After we fixed the risks, the team did another test to make sure that everything was secure.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a really effective communication so this helped to not have any big blockers and we stayed in the agreed timeline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The technical team has extensive cybersecurity knowledge. They are always looking to go the extra mile to make sure that things are communicated clearly and that they deliver quality.

2 technical security experts and 1 technical manager
