WASHINGTON--()--The Chertoff Group, a global security advisory firm that enables clients to navigate changes in security risk, technology and policy, today announced the rebranding of its core service offerings under two practice areas – “Strategic Advisory Services” and “Merchant Banking.” Additionally, The Chertoff Group launched a new website, logo and podcast that illustrate and amplify the firm’s growth and transformation.

“After 10 years of continuous growth, The Chertoff Group has become a global leader and trusted security advisor to best-in-class companies across an array of industries,” said Michael Chertoff, executive chairman and co-founder of The Chertoff Group. “The Chertoff Group’s clients trust in and leverage our firm’s collective security knowledge, operational intelligence and policy insights to shape their market position, develop a competitive advantage and ultimately create secure environments for their business operations.”

The newly rebranded Strategic Advisory Services practice leverages a highly differentiated approach for delivering strategic advice. The Chertoff Group’s Strategic Advisory Services offers a fully-integrated suite, equipped with a range of services that reflect the firm’s overall value proposition. Taken together, The Chertoff Group can find comprehensive solutions for any security risk management need, or for organizations looking to leverage security risk management as a business differentiator or accelerator.

The Chertoff Group’s Strategic Advisory Services core offerings include:

  • Security Risk Management – Managing physical and insider risk, leveraging a unique understanding of security effectiveness built around a three-pronged risk management methodology, including risk assessment, risk mitigation and risk monitoring.

In addition, The Chertoff Group assesses many Fortune 100 companies and global/corporate security organizations to ensure they are aligned to respond to an ever-changing risk landscape.
  • Cybersecurity Risk Management – Leveraging its security risk management methodology to help clients understand and apply core security risk management disciplines to their cybersecurity programs. The Chertoff Group applies an offense-informed defense analysis to assess systems from the mindset of an adversary. Its methodology also accounts for implementation risks so organizations can avoid trip-ups as they build out their programs - prioritizing preventive and detective measures based on risk. Likewise, it ensures programs address inherited risk from third-party dependencies.
  • Organic Growth Strategy – Strategic business insights and recommendations, based on state-of-the-market analysis, to identify and engage in market opportunities and build a competitive advantage.
  • Strategic Communications – Helping companies develop an informed understanding of today’s security issues and articulate specific points of view around what policies and investments are needed to create a more secure world in today’s global economy and operating environment.
