Cybersecurity is more than just implementing a hardware or software solution—it's a process.


You need to understand what you're trying to protect, from whom you are defending, how you will protect, and when you have been successful. Your data security is only a theory until it is tested and secured.

At Keep IT Simple (KIS), the KIS Cybersecurity team believes that the best way for the client to reduce the threats of cyberattacks is to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, which is published by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Using the framework reduces the attack surface by formally implementing security controls and managing the environment efficiently and effectively. The KIS Incident Response team has efficiently and effectively secured the networks of hundreds of organizations, including Fortune 500 companies with complex multi-site networks, government agencies, academic organizations, and small businesses. The KIS cybersecurity consulting team has expertise and a reputation for quality that has earned the team a preferred partner status with leading security product vendors who refer clients.

Many clients were introduced to the KIS via the Incident Response team through a cybersecurity incident requiring professional assistance. The KIS Incident Response team offers a valuable service of swiftly responding to cybersecurity incidents through their "boots on the ground" capability. This team has the expertise and resources to mitigate the incident and effectively minimize potential damage. The KIS Incident Response team provides initial triage of the incident and immediate action, contains the threat, determines the scope of the response, collects and preserves evidence and data, performs technical analysis, and prepares an eradication plan. The team then plans, prepares, and conducts the recovery process, concluding with a post-incident review by testing the environment.

The KIS Cybersecurity team also performs cybersecurity assessments, designs, and implements cybersecurity solutions in networking, edge and gateway solutions, and high availability. The team also conducts vulnerability assessments, security policy developments, secure remote access, access control, zero-trust implementations, content filtering, anti-virus, endpoint detection and response (EDR), managed detection and response (MDR/XDR), security information and event management (SIEM), SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS), and many other solutions to help secure the client's data and environment.

Our Process


KIS Cybersecurity team start by assessing your environment and identifying vulnerabilities. We also learn more about your organization’s objectives and requirements. This assessment encompasses vulnerabilities by priority that will include a Gap analysis.


Once the KIS Cybersecurity team has completed the assessment, the team remediates and mitigates the identified risks in the clients existing infrastructure by priority and builds defenses from there, implementing leading technology and automation where needed.


KIS Cybersecurity team then engages in a second assessment that will test the new cybersecurity defensive implementation.


KIS Cybersecurity team uses proven, industry-standard solutions to manage and monitor your critical infrastructure so you can focus on running your business.


KIS Incident Response team the clients to respond to cybersecurity incidents with our incident response team. These professionals are trained and experienced in working with organizations to identify, contain, eradicate, and recover from cyberattacks. The team focus our response efforts according to the client's scope of the effort (catch the bad guy, get back to production quickly, or both). The team can provide the full response effort and work with cyber-insurance and forensics teams to complete the response effort.
