Our Value

We have unparalleled top level experience as the adversary against the most difficult targets in the world
Our blended team approach allows us to address digital risk with both traditional cyber and human-focused analytic skill sets

Our Results

As a result of our value and differentiation, we are uniquely positioned to define the risk to and support the protection of an organization’s “crown jewels”

Our Differentiation

We have many years’ experience attacking and countering the very same adversaries now aggressively targeting your enterprise.

We deploy proprietary, patent-protected tools and data sets to accurately and efficiently solve problems, emulate realistic threat, and protect our clients’ interests.

We provide a level of creativity to both problem solving and attack simulation traditional service providers cannot match.

We combine capabilities inside and outside an organization’s firewall to provide holistic coverage of digital risk.

We work with any tool set and frequently develop our own tools for our clients as needed.

We produce tailored reporting at a nation-state intelligence level.

Our Story

As cyber operators in the U.S. Government, our team routinely noticed corporations that represented the backbone of U.S. society falling victim to sophisticated threat actors.

Since all threats now traverse the digital plane, the private sector needed help addressing this new reality.

Nisos formed for that purpose, and we’ve had the chance to work with leaders in a variety of industries, addressing platform abuse, supply chain integrity, complex insider investigations, and nation-state level hacking, among other issues.

An employee may also unknowingly become a pawn in an external actor’s game of gaining access or, more likely, they may be simply careless in their use of technology.
