Justin Fimlaid, Managing DirectorJustin Fimlaid, Managing Director of NuHarbor Security has fervor for ingenuity and is always passionate to invent new and innovative methodologies. As an industry veteran, Fimlaid likes to crack problems and endeavor to cuddle robust technology in the market. According to him, organizations these days are prone to security threats, flaws in new-fangled or escalating regulations and compliance mandates, and deficiency of security staff. The security departments are underfunded and undermanned and are having quandary in finding skilled people. Realizing the need of the hour, Fimlaid founded NuHarbor Security, a company that provides leading-edge security consulting, technology integration and staffing management through adopting innovative approaches and thought leadership.
The company helps its clients to design, implement, and sustain Information Security, Compliance, and Risk Management programs in a way that is purposeful, intelligently integrates security technology, and transparently measures progress toward their desired stage of program maturity. NuHarbor Security bridges the gap between information security maturity and the lack of skilled security resources customers lack today. “We work closely with our clients to share knowledge and develop staffing plans to support their internal staff from soft-skills to technical skills development,” reveals Fimlaid.
NuHarbor Security offers the premier GRC solutions in the market today hosted on AWS that allows businesses to deploy the solutions they desire without the overhead on managing a new software installation or negotiating with internal IT resources to deal with the costly underlying infrastructure.The solution speeds the time of implementation with the services customers and streamlines lengthy installation processes to 30 minutes or less. It also offers capacity and flexibility andeliminates guessing infrastructure capacity needs year over year. For a business that requires hosting and does not have internal resources to manage a GRC solution, the company provides GRC Application management that includes full management to patching, upgrades, user provisioning, application customization, and deliver content to mature GRC program.
The company also delivers incremental enhancements that meet the unique needs of its customers. A perfect example of this is a customer of NuHarbor Security who needed a proper GRC system as they were continuing to do paper-based work.
We are not a group or a firm that only offers security consulting. Our company spends time to understand what the issues are. We build security programs in a way that is very measured, and purposeful
The company offered a fully compliant and secure application instance that was fully provisioned with all of the content needed to mature their security program. “We were able to do that in a very short span of time and within the client’s budget. Most importantly it gave the client a platform to continue to deliver on their strategic roadmaps and initiatives with limited staff. So, we helped them to become a more mature security department and quicker than what they would have been without this solution,” notes Fimlaid.
Fimlaid further reveals that the biggest differentiating factor of NuHarbor Security is that most of their staffs have been former CISOs, ex-security directors who have walked a mile in their client’s shoes. “We are not a group or a firm that only offers security consulting. Our company spends time to understand what the issues are. We build security programs in a way that is very measured, and purposeful,” notes Fimlaid. When the issues are regarding buyers and risk services, the company not only integrates the security technologies, but also takes time to understand all the problems to the customers that help the security technology to be more successful and fulfill the purpose for which it was purchased.
Going forward, NuHarbor Security has plans to expand geographically and add more service offerings for its customers. “This year has been a milestone for us as we have broadly expanded. Now, we have a federal presence, so we do a lot of work for the federal government and strategically we plan to expand our presencein that part of the market,” concludes Fimlaid.
