Ridge Global and Secure Strategy Group Partner to Provide Financial and Strategic Advisory Services

Washington, D.C. (Nov. 12, 2015) – Ridge Global, a world leader in helping organizations become cyber resilient, and Secure Strategy Group, a boutique provider of market intelligence and capital markets services to emerging growth security technology companies, are pleased to announce the launch of a new business venture focused on the rapidly growing need for security enterprises that deliver both physical and cyber security solutions.

“We have seen the security industry rapidly transform from an emphasis on physical security technologies to a focus on cyber security and converged physical and cyber solutions,” said Ridge Global Chairman Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security. “Smaller, emerging growth companies are leading the way in technology innovation and new business models. These companies not only require the proper business and corporate development strategies to succeed, but also access to capital and M&A opportunities. That’s why this new partnership with Secure Strategy Group is so timely.”

The partnership will combine the expertise of both firms to provide a full solution set of market intelligence, financial and strategic advisory services to emerging growth companies in the homeland security, cyber security and critical infrastructure markets. Services include:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Forecasting/Budgeting
  • Business/Strategic Partnership Development
