Final Dot specializes in translating complex IT risk and management issues into business-relevant terms and outcomes. We always start by working to understand your business context, and strive to constantly maintain line of sight to your business objectives.
When discussing IT, we work hard to avoid technical jargon and communicate in language that makes sense. We promise not to intentionally use big words to try to make ourselves look smarter than we are.
We stress a holistic risk perspective and systems thinking to ensure interdependencies are addressed and solutions are optimized.
We also believe that a few principles are important.
We promise to conduct ourselves with the utmost integrity. We will always try to say what we mean, mean what we say, and be honest and fair. We expect the same in return. Enough said.
We aggressively pursue simple and actionable recommendations. Simplicity directly supports security, efficiency, and ease of use.
Compromises are unavoidable in effective IT risk management. We recognize the need to carefully accept risk in order to capture business opportunities, and emphasize cost-effective risk mitigation measures. We will help you understand tradeoffs between usability, cost, and security.
We don’t want you to waste your money.
we recognize that no two sets of circumstances are the same. So, we work hard to make sure that our approach is focused on you and your needs, not our preferred methodologies or pre-conceived notions.
We also understand that there is rarely a single “right” answer. We think our job is to 1) help you identify the available options and 2) assist you in making the decisions that are right for you.
