Why Hire a Trusted Advisor

Reduce Cost

Full-time skilled security experts are pricey. Augment your security talent for a fraction of the cost.

Team Knowledge and Experience

Our team has more knowledge and overall experience than any one person is likely to achieve in their entire career. This expertise includes, but is not limited to, cybersecurity, directory services, compliance, control design/implementation, business continuity, and business practices.

Market Demand

Experts are in high demand and finding candidates is becoming more difficult every day. Industry trends predict this will continue for years to come. A  Trusted Advisor can greatly lessen the impact of CISO or security leadership time, costs, and the impact of turnover or promotion.


If you have an immediate need to ensure you are meeting compliance standards, a Trusted Advisor team will be ready to hit the ground running. Training and compliance certification of in-house CISOs can be slow, costly, and disruptive to the other duties of leadership.


Trusted Advisor services from Cadre provide experts not only when you need them, but also to the extent that you need them.

Cadre's Trusted Advisor offering is meant to be flexible in order to meet the needs of each of our clients. Engagements typically follow a cycle of assess, plan and remediate.

Whether you need high level guidance on a monthly or quarterly basis or need hands-on help several days per week, our Trusted Advisors will be able to build a solution for you.
