Founded in 2001, Coalfire is the largest Independent IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (IT GRC) firm in the US. Coalfire serves as a trusted advisor and IT GRC tools-provider to security-conscious leaders in Retail, Financial Services, Healthcare, Hospitality, Higher Education, Government and Utilities. We help our clients recognize and control IT-related risks and maintain compliance with all major industry and government standards.
Today, Coalfire serves thousands of clients across North America, with offices in Dallas, Denver, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta and Boston. We are privately-held by our co-founders and a small group of outside investors.
Coalfire exists because of our four fundamental beliefs. IT risks (a.k.a. cyber threats) are real and the risks are multiplying. As a result, most organizations face increasing industry and regulatory demands, such as HIPAA, PCI or Federal regulations and a well-designed, well-maintained IT GRC program is your best line of defense. In addition, Coalfire Labs – our technical testing group – performs network and application level vulnerability assessments including penetration testing, code reviews and social engineering exercises.
Coalfire’s continuing mission is to provide knowledge, tools, guidance and independent assessment services to all organizations worth protecting.
