Our People

Uncompromising Integrity

When it comes to cybersecurity, you need someone you can trust will create value with pragmatic, effective solutions aligned with risk tolerance AND your value creation equation.


BW Cyber protects PE firms and their portfolio companies against the unknown unknowns with our thorough, “trust, but verify” approach.

When it comes to cybersecurity, you don’t know what you don’t know until it’s too late. That’s why you need to have a trusted partner committed to going the extra mile.

We move at the speed of PE – always making you a priority.

Our meticulous project management is always in sync with your workflows so that we can keep you one step ahead, every step of the way.

We speak the language of PE.

Unlike the other guys, our reports are actually useful. Risks are quantified in terms of dollars and cents, and next steps are clear and actionable.

Always efficacy-based. NEVER check-the-box.

We ask 10 questions instead of 1 because we refuse to take a commoditized, check-the-box approach.

Focus on value creation via pragmatic risk reduction.

The value we deliver often easily surpasses the cost because we’re pragmatic about the solutions we offer and the recommendations we make.

How BW Cyber creates tangible value by reducing risk for private equity firms.

The Background

A PE firm brought in BW Cyber during an important acquisition to perform cyber due diligence on the acquisition candidate – a backup company for critical infrastructure.

Spotting the Risk

During the cyber due diligence process, BW discovered that the acquisition candidate – a company who offered backups to its customers – didn’t have industry-acceptable backups of their own. This issue is something that most “check-the-box” cyber firms would have overlooked. BW’s commitment to taking a business-first approach drove them to alert the client’s deal team.

The Outcome – Value Creation

Because the deal team was armed with new information, they were able to negotiate considerable concessions and legal stipulations for infrastructure improvements, preventing potentially existential issues down the road.
