Sera-Brynn: Certified Cyber Risk Management

Rather than write a bunch of paragraphs about how great we are** and the hundreds and hundreds of clients in dozens of different industries that we’ve helped to mitigate their cyber risk and/or meet their cybersecurity compliance requirements, we thought showing our ten-year evolution was better done through a chronological montage. Here goes:

Meaning of Sera-Brynn

Sera – Taken from the Sera Monastery in Tibet which is one of the three great monasteries of the Geluk school of Tibetan Buddhism.

Brynn – English spelling of the Welsh word “bryn” meaning “hill” or “mound.” Historically, only the strongest get to claim a bryn as their own.


This unique combination reflects two important values in cybersecurity: the relentless pursuit of knowledge and excellence within one’s discipline, and strength through preparedness and resilience.
