MorganFranklin Consulting, a Washington, DC-based management consulting firm, has launched a new cybersecurity innovation center (CIC).
The custom, interactive lab environment will allow clients to gain insight into how security tools would function in their environment and how cyberattacks would impact their systems.
“As ever-increasing and more sophisticated attacks combine with rapid digital transformation, cybersecurity preparation has never been more challenging or more important,” said John Fung, a director in MorganFranklin’s cybersecurity operations practice area. “The MorganFranklin Cybersecurity Innovation Center is a powerful new way to help our clients answer essential questions that improve their security operations, upskill their teams, and address their most pressing threats.”
Prior to deployment, clients can replicate their live systems and troubleshoot countermeasures to the latest attack vectors. Clients can also examine how security tools from various providers perform alone and together to optimize program spend.
For MorganFranklin, the CIC will allow the firm to generate ongoing threat intelligence and refine its cybersecurity approaches.
The consultancy’s wider cybersecurity practice provides services in program strategy governance, risk, and compliance; identity and access management; cybersecurity operations; incident response; business and technology resilience; risk intelligence; and managed security.
MorganFranklin provides consulting in accounting and risk advisory, strategic transformation and program execution, supply chain and retail management, technology enablement, and cybersecurity. The firm has more than 600 people across eight US offices.
MorganFranklin recently hired Michael Orozco as advisory services leader for its cybersecurity practice.
