BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Rephyr offers Real Estate Professionals tools to help them demonstrate their value and stay organized. I am the CEO/Founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Framework Security?

Prior to launch, we needed an evaluation of our overall security.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to be confident that we were secure. Any place where vulnerabilities were discovered, we wanted pragmatic solutions as to how we could remediate the issue.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We evaluated three vendors. Framework Security made the most sense for our needs.

Describe the project in detail.

We received a comprehensive audit with a focus on OWASP top 10. Each vulnerability discovered was accompanied by pragmatic remediation advice.

What was the team composition?

I interfaced directly with Jerry. I do not know how many people were supporting him on his end.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

A number of OWASP to 10 vulnerabilities were remediated due to this engagement.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was highly effective. Expectations were set at the beginning of the engagement and regular communication occurred throughout.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The level of pragmatism of the advice offered. Security companies can often be theoretical in their approach, not Framework Security. They helped me and my team focus on what really matters.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We had some issues with the conference calling technology they used. I am not sure what could be done, but it did cause a few meetings to start late.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of Bald Ginger, a financial consulting firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Framework Security?

I hired the Framework Security team to provide me with a risk assessment which highlighted the existing effective security controls and areas in need of improvement. They were able to inform me of the potential external threats and provided solutions that mitigated the gaps.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals of this project were to highlight the potential security vulnerabilities via a risk assessment, close the gaps, and implement software solutions that could better protect my business.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I knew Jerry the founder from working together in the past. I knew to call him for any help regarding cybersecurity.

Describe the project in detail.

The Framework team was quick to schedule online video conferences where they discussed what the objectives were, how they were going to tackle the gaps in my cybersecurity, and what I could expect.

I truly did not have to worry about the details because they handled all of it. They provide the cybersecurity support I needed to secure my business from potential threats.

What was the team composition?

They have about 5 people. I was mainly involved with the founder because he was the cybersecurity expert who personally dealt with my case. He would consult with his other team members when it was necessary to push my company's agenda.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The risk assessment was a success, having a fractional CISO made the process easier, learning about the new products my company could utilize was informative, and overall I feel confident about the integrity of my company's cybersecurity program.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow between Framework and Bald Ginger was extremely efficient.  I was able to get them on the phone at anytime. Whenever I needed a briefing, the partners was always quick to set up a meeting. Communication was never a problem.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

This company really impressed me with their customer service and cybersecurity solutions they provided.

I was excited to have a fractional CISO handle my company's cybersecurity needs because it was one less thing I had to worry about. For a company of fewer than ten people, the speed at which they operated at impressed me.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not many recommendations as of now but if I think add it later.
