Our Story

Reimagining Operational Resilience

Guiding Principles

The SafeHouse Initiative was organized to provide education and awareness to businesses who are inundated with technical concepts, jargon and terms around the concepts of Business Continuity and Cyber Security.  We understand that you want to focus on your business rather than becoming Cyber Security or Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity technology experts.  

We wanted the SafeHouse Initiative to be a collaborative organization where businesses could turn to gain a holistic view  of solutions that can improve operational resilience as an alternative to engaging a single vendor.  The SafeHouse Initiative has no products or services to sell per se.  We are not a product or service marketplace.  We follow the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for Cybersecurity controls and guidance.

The SafeHouse Initiative organization came together through an open exchange of ideas with insurance carriers, CIOs, and CTOs who feel the current technologies available are not sufficient to prevent costly operational downtime and to protect them from cyber attacks in all forms.

We are comprised of cyber security and operational resilience subject matter experts who are committed to “giving back”.  We want to help educate individuals and organizations, especially those in the Financial Services, Insurance, and Healthcare industries regarding the issues surrounding operational downtime and how to prevent it and recover from it.

The SafeHouse Initiative seeks to usher trusted, critical operational and application resilience into today’s modern architectures

Our Goal

To help companies to react to breaches, isolate issues, and improve operational resilience for continuous business operations

With the rise in the frequency of breaches and ransomware over the last 3 years, the current technologies widely used today in businesses are failing.  A key question from conversations with business leaders was how to leverage their existing investments and augment them with more sophisticated solutions versus doing a “rip and replace”.

The contributors that participate in the SafeHouse Initiative organization are all focused on acting as a safety net by filling the gaps in current technologies and augmenting existing technology deployments.  Additionally, the contributors collaborate together.  Organizations can engage each contributor independently or together per their specific needs and requirements.  

Continuous Improvement

The SafeHouse Initiative will be a continuously improved organization and site with more contributors and updates in the future. Check back often to watch the organization grow!

We are not a marketplace

The SafeHouse Initiative has nothing to sell. If you’d like to engage one or more of the contributing organizations, please reach out directly to them, or send us a note and we’ll bring together the right combination of contributors.

Privacy First

The SafeHouse Initiative will never sell or share your information if you leave it with us or one of our contributors

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Many organizations across a number of industries including Financial Services, Insurance, Healthcare, and Government (particularly the Department of Defense) rely on the research of NIST and their controls and standards.  The Safehouse Initiative leverages NIST defined frameworks and applies them using consulting best practices and best in class solutions.
