Vulnerabilities are evolving all the time and this makes it critical “to have eyes on” all your existing and potential vulnerabilities. In more than 80% of hacking cases the vulnerability areas affected were not even anticipated and was a complete surprise to the internal Risk Team. This situation makes it imperative to have an internal team assessing potential threats at all times and continually improving the stability of hardware/software applications and their interaction with business processes and staff manning those processes.
The ability to use the appropriate cybersecurity problem solving tools to diagnose a cybersecurity situation and then to facilitate the solution nominating the correct information sources and process to be used.

“I know the stuff works, because once we get a problem solving team together we normally have the answer (technical cause) within 90 minutes. The KEPNERandFOURIE methodologies are now fundamental in our approach to all incident and problem investigations.”-Liam Edwards, Former Executive Director – MacQuarie Bank
“Prior to our use of KEPNERandFOURIE CauseWise and SolutionWise, it took us from 2 weeks to several months to ‘turn around’ a plan of action to improve our process and prevent re-occurrence. That time has been reduced to less than one week on complex issues. ”-Quality Manager at NAVSEA
“The TDG strategy and implementation process enabled us to make meaningful change by breaking down the company’s strategy in to meaningful pieces at the individual contributor level. It was no longer ‘the company’s strategy’, it was their strategy.”-Dan Starck, CEO at Apria Healthcare
