Mission Statement

The cybersecurity mission of the Creative Ground Tech is to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information systems, identity, and data assets by providing proactive security expertise, creating, and maintaining a resilient and secure infrastructure, and fostering a culture of security awareness and compliance throughout the organization.

The Creative Ground Tech Information Security Team aims to secure our applications, system, and network resources, and protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of clients, partners, and staff data.

To support this mission, the Information Security Team will

  • Develop processes, procedures, and policies required for the protection of confidential information
  • Identify risks to the security of applications, information, and systems. Mitigate these risks to levels acceptable to the company
  • Define security requirements, establish baselines, and measure compliance, based on applicable laws, regulations, and best practices
  • Consult with stakeholders and staff departments to investigate security issues and evaluate products and processes
  • Collaborate with Information Technology administrators and technical staff to develop the company information security strategy and architecture
  • Ensure incident response and disaster recovery plans are developed and implemented
  • Respond to and recover from disruptive and destructive information security events
  • Increase company awareness of information security through training and communication

Daily, we strive to protect our clients and our staff from current and emerging threats related to security and privacy. We see this playing out in our everyday business by focusing on preventing harm, fast defense, and building trust in the community.

As the threat landscape evolves, so will we. Defense is not a static game; it requires continual engagement and innovation. It also requires working with the security community. Together, we will find ways to better protect clients and the broader ecosystem.
