Benefits

Our Approach

Cylance Consulting’s Strategic Services team takes a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity by first understanding business operations and strategic goals. Cylance pairs its industry expertise with the 9 Box of Controls framework, which provides a novel approach to cybersecurity decision-making and overall strategic decisions designed at enabling business users and preventing cyberattacks.

9-Box of Controls Framework
Cylance Consulting is a professional services group of BlackBerry Corporation.

The 9 Box of Controls framework takes three foundational types of security controls, recently observed as the functional areas of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework: prevention, detection, and response. The framework demonstrates how an organization increases its risk by moving away from prevention, towards detection and response, and increases the costs as the organization moves from automated to semi-automated to manual controls.

Our Service Offerings

Cylance Consulting helps organizations address these challenges by gaining an in-depth understanding of the organizational strategy, needs and desired business outcomes. Through the 9 Box of Controls framework, we provide organizations with the foundation to address critical areas of concern to prevent threats, enable the business by meeting the needs of its users, and reduce control friction that can ultimately have a negative impact on business productivity.
