What We Do

Some of the most common Advisory services include:


With our comprehensive advisory services covering everything from high-level strategy to tackling day-to-day tasks, we have the experience and ingenuity to bring your security posture up to date.

We can also work with you to design and implement a strategic roadmap to improve your posture over a three-year period. Our goal is to provide visibility and confidence in your cybersecurity posture while helping your organization identify areas to improve, all while saving time and money.

We also provide CISO services, building a complete posture from scratch if necessary, then finding and training a permanent CISO.


Regulatory compliance can be daunting to navigate. We can guide our customers through the sometimes tricky details of the regulatory frameworks that apply to their industry.


    Whether you process millions of transactions or only one every once in a while, your organization is required to be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). With over 300 technical controls, meeting PCI-DSS can be a daunting task and you risk a lot by waiting until your assessment date to pay attention to what is required. Learn more

  • CMMC

    The CMMC program includes cyber protection standards for companies in the defense/industrial base (DIB). By incorporating cybersecurity standards into acquisition programs, CMMC provides the department assurance that contractors and subcontractors are meeting the DoD's cybersecurity requirements. Our goal is providing visibility and confidence that your cybersecurity posture is CMMC certified.


Cutting-edge technology and leading experts can’t close the risks left by vague, incomplete or poorly planned policy. Learn more


  • Continuous Monitoring Program

    A Continuous Monitoring program is essential in detecting malicious behavior and containing it before serious damage is done to the organization. Whether using a SIEM, MDR, or XDR, we extensive experience in a variety of toolsets, as well as frameworks like MITRE and NIST.

    We can perform a variety of assessments to identify gaps from three perspectives: Visibility, Data Quality, and Detection. Our programs can help remediate those identified gaps.

  • CyberSecurity Program

    While our exhaustive, comprehensive cybersecurity and risk assessments reveal vulnerabilities in your security posture, we can go farther. Novacoast will provide risk register, prioritization, and recommendations. Our goal is to provide visibility and confidence in your cybersecurity posture while helping your organization identify areas to improve security—all while saving time and money.

  • Microsoft O365

    Securing your Microsoft environment and data is a critical part of moving workloads to the cloud. Default security provided by cloud vendors may seem effective, but each of the settings must be defined and evaluated regularly.

    In a tailored Microsoft Security Assessment, our team of Office 365 experts will identify key elements to secure your environment and protect critical data by covering these areas of concern:

    • Tenant Configuration
    • License Review
    • Identity
    • Endpoints
    • Applications
    • Analytics analysis
  • SOC2 Readiness

    Is your organization ready for a SOC 2 audit? Learn how to prepare by conducting a SOC 2 readiness assessment.

    A SOC 2 readiness assessment is essentially a dress rehearsal for your formal SOC 2 audit, and preparation is critical to identify potential issues. The assessment will focus on Scope, Assessment, and Remediation, with the goal of providing visibility and confidence that your cybersecurity posture is ready for a formal audit.


  • GRC – Governance, Risk, and Compliance

    Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) is a structured way to align IT with business goals while managing risks and meeting all industry and government regulations.

    GRC includes tools and processes to unify an organization's governance and risk management with its technological innovation and adoption. Companies use GRC to achieve organizational goals reliably, remove uncertainty, and meet compliance requirements. We have experienced staff that can help augment your team or help you get your GRC program off the ground.
