The Chertoff Group Announces Rebrand

The Chertoff Group gets a makeover, enhancing its reputable service practices with new core offerings, new website, new logo, and new podcast.

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:

Security Risk Management – Managing physical and insider risk, leveraging a unique understanding of security effectiveness built around a three-pronged risk management methodology, including risk assessment, risk mitigation and risk monitoring. The Chertoff Group's risk management methodology has achieved Safety Act designation by The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, one of the few consultancies in the world to have achieved this status. In addition, The Chertoff Group assesses many Fortune 100 companies and global/corporate security organizations to ensure they are aligned to respond to an ever-changing risk landscape.

Cybersecurity Risk Management – Leveraging its security risk management methodology to help clients understand and apply core security risk management disciplines to their cybersecurity programs. 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. Likewise, it ensures programs address inherited risk from third-party dependencies.

Organic Growth Strategy – Strategic business insights and recommendations, based on state-of-the-market analysis, to identify and engage in market opportunities and build a competitive advantage.

Strategic Communications – Helping companies develop an informed understanding of today's security issues and articulate specific points of view around what policies and investments are needed to create a more secure world in today's global economy and operating environment. The Chertoff Group is focused on helping companies enhance trust in security while advancing their brand, reputation, and competitiveness through effective business strategy, communications, and stakeholder engagement.

The Chertoff Group's Merchant Banking practice provides investment banking services for high-growth, mission-focused companies in the national security, cybersecurity and government technology markets. In addition, The Chertoff Group makes growth equity investments in private companies serving security markets.

The Chertoff Group's Merchant Banking core offerings include:

Sell-Side M&A Advisory – Employs a proven, tailored approach to enable clients to accomplish their strategic and financial objectives through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Chertoff Capital.

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. Current episodes cover a range of important issues and topics, including: Are you Ransomware Ready, Securing the Homeland – What Can Small Business Offer, Is A Lack of Talent Hurting the Security Industry, Identifying Signals – From the Cold War to the Digital Age, Planning for Cybersecurity Threats, The Role of Private Equity in Security Spending and Securing the Skies: How TSA is Innovating in Identifying Threats.
