About

Our Story

Cyturus started in 2005 as a Cyber-risk consulting firm. We architected solutions for our Fortune 5000 clients that were simple, elegant and are still in use today. Over five years ago we realized the Compliance and Cyber-risk management industry could do better than static reports, spreadsheets and complicated solutions. We leveraged our years of experience in technology and cyber risk management and created ARM, the C2MA process and CRT to automate and simplify both the maturation process and the assessment metrics. 

Our Objective

Our objective is to accelerate your ability to reduce risk quickly by automating 75% of the work and making it ready to easily absorb. We want to empower your organization to implement a broad cyber-aware culture, from the board to the front-lines.
