Sera-Brynn – Certified Cyber Risk Management

Sera-Brynn was founded in 2011 by former members of the U.S. intelligence community. Since then, we have grown into the highest-ranked, pure-play cybersecurity compliance and advisory firm in the world. We are the only cybersecurity firm in North America partnered with a multi-billion-dollar financial institution, TowneBank.

We teach our clients the “before and after” strategy of cyber risk management: mitigate risk with Audit & Advisory services, including Fractional CISO; or accept risk and handle a breach with Incident Response, Forensics, and Threat Hunting.


We are one of the only companies in the world to certify as both a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI-QSA) company and FedRAMP Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO)

Why is this important?  Because achieving compliance with industry and government cybersecurity frameworks will mitigate risk.  We can support multiple compliance efforts to efficiently reduce risk.

Our certifications include:

spookyWhat Does Sera-Brynn Mean?

We get this question all the time!

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.
