CIO VendorRobert Herjavec, Founder & CEO
“Today, the Internet of Things and interconnectivity are at the forefront of any cyber security-led conversation and with the constant barrage of high-scale cyber attacks occurring in the financial and IT industries, it is crucial to prioritize business security,” begins Robert Herjavec, Founder and CEO of Herjavec Group. “The rate of change of the cyber security industry—and IT as a whole—is remarkable and in order to keep up with the demands, we must evolve and adapt to these changes as necessary.” His extensive experience in interpreting industry trends and understanding enterprise business security demands has positioned Herjavec Group as a pioneer in information security specializing in managed security services, consulting, delivery and incident response for enterprises. Herjavec Group supports enterprises’ IT Security Lifecycle and drives their business and infrastructure on a secure basis.

The IT infrastructures and databases being the treasure troves for cyber pirates, organizations are gradually turning to third party data breach and incident response firms, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), to fortify their cyber-defense. “As demand for third party security firms increases at an unprecedented rate, Herjavec Group has expanded to become one of the largest independent managed service providers in North America,” asserts Herjavec. The firm helps enterprise organizations to keep their data secure, by offering consulting, delivery, managed services and remediation support to large-scale organizations with very complex environments. The Ontario based firm’s Security Consulting Services helps in reviewing client’s security infrastructure against the principles—to understand the existing information technology control framework, identifying the most vulnerable cyber threats and attacks.

Furthermore, the firm’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Security Process Review measures the maturity, effectiveness and efficiency of the organization’s security. The CMMI Security Process Review provides a baseline security assessment to help the client in identifying current vulnerabilities and areas for improvement.

“Our flexible and agile offering, which includes on-premises, cloud or hybrid models supports the customer’s infrastructure and bolster their security practice,” asserts Herjavec.

The firm delivers SOC 2 Type 2 certified managed security services globally supported by state-of-the-art, PCI compliant, Security Operations Centres (SOC), and continues to identify areas where enterprise customers can be more effective in their security posture. Herjavec Group’s managed services relies on Threat Framework, that inspects various activities such as logging, correlation, threat hunting, and certified optimization. The Threat Framework is a linch-pin in Herjavec Group that allows dynamic and evolving threat modeling to be applied within any organizational environment. The firm also focuses on meaningful security use cases to proactively identify attacks by applying the Framework to onboarded technologies and threat intelligence products in the client’s environment.

Adding momentum to the firm’s Threat Framework, Herjavec Group’s Analytics Platform filters threat intelligence and customer data into actionable, relevant alerts. These alerts are enhanced using Herjavec Group’s Threat Framework and processed through the Analytics Platform, that inevitably performs enriching functions including IP reputation look up, protocol parsing, deduplication and rule suppression— helping security analysts to review and action accordingly. Moreover, the Cloud Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) platform from Herjavec Group offers scalable log aggregation and data analytics with updated dashboards comprising of tailored tables, charts, and alerts which ensures complete coverage of the organization’s most important log sources with zero time delay.

Going forward, Herjavec Group wants to develop top-notch applications and strategies to eclipse the company’s earlier successes and unchain the prospect of data-driven decision making for everyone those who are trying to close the achievement gap.
