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's rebrand is brought to life through the launch of its new website.
