WASHINGTON -- The Chertoff Group, a global security advisory firm that enables clients to navigate changes in security risk, technology and policy, today announced the rebranding of its core service offerings under two practice areas -– "Strategic Advisory Services" and "Merchant Banking." Additionally, The Chertoff Group launched a new website, logo and podcast that illustrate and amplify the firm's growth and transformation.

"After 10 years of continuous growth, The Chertoff Group has become a global leader and trusted security advisor to best-in-class companies across an array of industries," said Michael Chertoff, executive chairman and co-founder of The Chertoff Group. "The Chertoff Group's clients trust in and leverage our firm's collective security knowledge, operational intelligence and policy insights to shape their market position, develop a competitive advantage and ultimately create secure environments for their business operations."

The newly rebranded Strategic Advisory Services practice leverages a highly differentiated approach for delivering strategic advice. The Chertoff Group's Strategic Advisory Services offers a fully-integrated suite, equipped with a range of services that reflect the firm's overall value proposition. Taken together, The Chertoff Group can find comprehensive solutions for any security risk management need, or for organizations looking to leverage security risk management as a business differentiator or accelerator.

The Chertoff Group's Strategic Advisory Services core offerings include:

The Chertoff Group applies an offense-informed defense analysis to assess systems from the mindset of an adversary. Its methodology also accounts for implementation risks so organizations can avoid trip-ups as they build out their programs - prioritizing preventive and detective measures based on risk.

The Chertoff Group's Merchant Banking core offerings include:

Buy-Side M&A Advisory – Leverages its deep experience, unique insights and global network of industry relationships to support private equity and corporate buyers in acquiring businesses focused on the security, defense and government services markets.

The Chertoff Group's rebrand is brought to life through the launch of its new website. The redesigned website is a comprehensive platform that showcases the firm's new brand image, with increased functionality and tools, to help users better explore and understand the firm's service offerings. Valuable new content and information architecture offer a more in-depth look at its services, while new back-end technologies provide increased performance and an enhanced user experience.

The Chertoff Group has also launched a new weekly podcast "Insights & Intelligence" featuring the best and brightest thought leaders in security and risk management. The show explores the changing nature of risk and how security, technology and policy impact and influence how companies create more resilient environments as they work to achieve their core business objectives.

"Insights & Intelligence" is now live and available on The Chertoff Group website and iTunes.
