Like most successful companies, MAD Security has evolved to meet the needs of our customers. MAD was founded as a security consulting company providing generalized security solutions and services. We have provided penetration testing services, security architecture services, security solution design and security training.  What has made MAD successful is not forcing a tired methodology onto our customers. We actually listen to our customers’ needs and react quickly and decisively.


Improve your humans, improve your security

The information security challenge is one that has become much more difficult for organizations to manage effectively. Gone are the days when a single piece of technology was all that was needed to protect your enterprise from threats. Over the last decade, the threat landscape has changed significantly. As attackers get more advanced, they target our greatest weakness — human nature.

The human element is the most difficult challenge facing us today in information security. This is why we have evolved to be able to meet that challenge. We help our customers reduce risk at the very core of the enterprise — its people. We take pride in showing our customers a measurable impact in security training efforts through targeted End User Security Awareness Training, Role-based Training and IT Security Training.
