REDW Moves into Cybersecurity Services

Albuquerque, N.M.-based REDW (FY14 net revenue of $26.2 million) plans to offer cybersecurity advisory services starting next year, Albuquerque Business First reported.

According to a number of factors fed into the decision to venture into the cybersecurity field.

“What we were finding was that technology is impacting our clients and other businesses at a rapid-fire pace, so we’re responding to our clients and the community to identify these game changing shifts,” Marcus Clarke, principal and director of internal technology, told the newspaper. “Before, cybersecurity was about the fortress – keeping the bad guys out. Now, the bad guys are already in and it’s trying to live with them, which is a wake-up call for executives.”

Clarke said the firm would offer guidance in terms of regulation, compliance and governance. As a result, the firm will be hiring three to five people in the coming months.
