The value of starting early is not so much just being prepared, but having the right options available. The later you start, the harder it is to implement controls.Alex White, Vice President, Prescient
Alex White is Vice President of Cyber and principal consultant for Prescient based in Chicago. With an impressive background in the military and world-class taekwondo, Alex has always focused on service, and representing a community larger than himself.
“Inside of what we do at Prescient, we share with organizations the ability to become predictive. The kind of use cases that we’re called in to deploy are really subject matter expertise with strategic compliance. Because we’re problem solvers and goal oriented with organizational vision and board requirements, we can pretty much satisfy that mathematically, effectively, quantitatively, qualitatively, all at the same time.
What attracted me to Ansarada are the people. I had a great conversation in our first meeting and essentially, we were problem solving from the beginning. We weren’t just trying to negotiate a deal or partnership – it was how can we leverage this partnership to create something better than we already have?
The value of starting early is not so much just being prepared, but having the right options available. The later you start, the harder it is to implement controls.
In leveraging the Ansarada Platform, not only are you looking at the ability to secure a room where all of your data exists and is stored and shelved very nicely for easy access and cataloguing, but it doesn’t just show a dormant document that you put in in January 2018 to be compliant with GDPR. It shows the growth of your organization and how you scale that into your documents and your evidence. So organizations that would have never had an electronic file sync and share or a secure room to put these memorialized artefacts for evidence against – not just audit, but just as a memorialization of their company growing and paying attention to how they’re satisfying compliance against that growth. Now they can.
I already knew it was a tool that was incredibly valuable, but offering an actual technology that’s efficient, effective, qualitatively better than its competitors…it was immediately an easy, no-brainer marriage.”
