Why should my company care about Cyber Security?
Cybercrime is a rapidly growing criminal business, impacting millions of people and organizations around the world. Cybercrime damages cost the world $3 trillion last year alone and that figure is expected to double by 2021 per a 2016 crime report conducted by Cybersecurity Ventures. In New York State, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the first-in-the-nation cybersecurity regulation to protect New York’s financial services industry and consumers from the ever-growing threat of cyber-attacks which takes effect on March 1, 2017.
Who is Nero Consulting?
Nero Consulting is an organization of highly-skilled I.T. professionals that analyzes your business needs and assesses your technology to improve your information security and managing your business risk. This means leveraging not only our technical, but legal acumen to develop a long-term partnership with you where we are profitable only when you experience the least pain, and your systems are secure.

What is included in a Cyber Security Assessment?
Cyber Security Assessments involve firewalls, forensics, cloud security, open source tools, compliance-regulations audits, etc. as they pertain to Section 500.02 of the Cybersecurity Program.
After our initial telephone or email conversation to review the criteria, we would like to visit with you to discuss your technology infrastructure in order to setup policies and procedures to ensure security of systems and nonpublic information as it relates to Section 500.03 Cybersecurity Policy. Our goal is to make sure your company is compliant by February 15, 2018.
If you're happy with our initial assessment, we can continue our partnership with a flat-rate security maintenance services which will include Application Security, Training and Monitoring – Section 500.05, 500.06 and 500.07 - which go into effect September 1, 2018.
We believe a flat-rate will allow companies to budget for their I.T. investments annually, eliminating unpredictable fluctuating I.T. expenses – your monthly fees are fixed and guaranteed not to vary from month to month - and most importantly keeps your network safe and puts you in compliance with 23 NYCRR 500.
