Our Story

Realizing the Need

The September 11th terrorist attack on the United States, the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) enactment, critical infrastructure outages, devastating virus/worm attacks etc., have really brought information assurance (e.g., now cybersecurity) to the forefront of the Government, corporate executives and other decision makers. In an attempt to addressing these concerns, I established True Information Assurance, LLC (True IA).

I have often discovered that key aspects of information assurance are missing from organizational security programs.  The necessity for a complete and comprehensive security architecture propelled me to create an enterprise (e.g., True IA) that had the capability to develop and sustainable security environments.  Based on my experience, in the Pentagon and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, and practical application/engineering, I believe there are key and correlative components that every information technology environment needs to possess to sustain and secure their network operations.

Network security management ought to be designed to protect the vital assets of the business and be able to achieve return-on-investment.  The correlation between business management and security management is not prevalent.  True IA is designed to bridge this gap, and service all the cybersecurity needs of our clients; demystifying cybersecurity because organization need to know the unknowns, regarding cyber in this Information Age.

Meaning of a Logo

Original True LogoOur logo is symbolic of a Hurricane.  First, draw your attention to the 3 water drops that comprise the main body of the Hurricane. These 3 drops are representative of the 3 components of Information Assurance (IA), known as the Triad of IA: Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability.

Second, note that the water drops appear to be rotating in a clockwise fashion.  In the natural, and in the northern hemisphere, Hurricanes rotate counter clockwise.   Also, in the natural, we know that Hurricanes are considered destructive forces.  So, we designed our Hurricane to rotate clockwise because True is constructive or reconstructive force.

Third, no Hurricane would be complete without an Eye of the Storm.  What is relatively known about the Eye is the calm, but what is relatively unknown is that the Eye is the influence that keeps the storm together.  Without the Eye, the storm will collapse on itself, and cease to exist. As an analogy, we believe that Information Technology (IT) can be observed as an electronic storm, where there is a collision on 1’s and 0’s. Fortunately, IT has protocols in place to cause order in the storm.  The Eye at the center of the IT storm is where IA sits.  IA brings order (e.g., confidentiality, integrity, and availability) to IT, and without this influence the storm would collapse on itself.

Lastly, notice the concentric rings under the Hurricane.  These rings are symbolic of the impact that True has on every environment that we provide service to.  Our impact starts at the center of an organization and reverberates to its outer fringes; by doing so we provide what IT needs . . .
