At Cyber Squared, we started out working for one of the toughest and most demanding clients around—the U.S. government. As cyber threats expanded from the government and defense arenas into the commercial realm so did our experience which, over time, has grown to include public corporations, private companies, non-profits, associations and think tanks. We know commercial espionage does not discriminate and affects every industry. While each sector, industry and organization is different, the need to protect vital information and to safeguard long-term competitiveness is universal. And because no one is safe, you can rest assured we bring the same rigor and tenacity to cyber security as cyber criminals bring to their activities.
We recognize that each industry has unique concerns and needs, but we also know that threats are not industry specific, rather, one incident can, and often does, affect victims across a spectrum of industries.

This multi-industry case study examines how the report of a single incident uncovered adversaries who using unwitting, intermediate hosts conducted a sustained espionage campaign against dozens of private sector targets.
The industries listed below are reporting increased attacks. If you would like to have a confidential conversation about your cyber security questions, feel free to contact us.
The Oil/Energy industry
is unique. In addition to large physical infrastructure facilities, most companies in this field also possess extensive digital assets worth billions of dollars: complex technologies, research plans and valuable contract information to name a few. Protecting this vital information is now more important than ever.
The Communications sector
provides critical infrastructure to deliver essential services and is closely linked to other industries, such as, public safety, energy, transportation and banking. The rapid growth of mobile technologies, integration of the telecommunications infrastructure and complex supply-chain logistics have created unprecedented risks and vulnerabilities.
Protecting individual’s private financial information, as well as, the integrity of the financial system’s in general are absolute requirements in the Financial Services
industry in an era where mobile technologies threaten to make the system more vulnerable. .
Reputation-based businesses, such as, International Law Firms and Public Relations Agencies
, particularly those with dealings in China, are considered highly vulnerable to cyber attacks by most cyber security experts. Keepers of sensitive corporate data, confidential information on mergers and acquisitions and on-going litigation, they have the utmost responsibility to protect and safeguard their networks.
Think tanks, NGOs and research organizations
are prime targets for cyber attacks. Even though in most instances they are not-for-profit, they hold in their networks years of detailed research, policy analysis and strategic knowledge, in many instances, from some of the brightest minds in their fields. That information is valuable and deserves to be protected.
Safeguarding an individual’s privacy and medical records is critical in the Healthcare industry
. At the same time, Pharmaceutical
and Medical Technology
companies invest tremendous resources each year researching and developing new drugs and new technologies. Those advancements signify billions of dollars in future sales and profits. At Cyber Squared, our cyber security strategies are designed around these unique needs.
