Sera-Brynn – A certified cyber audit and assessment firm.

Our Story

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 a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor and FedRAMP Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) specializing in cyber risk management and compliance. Offering compliance and risk assessments, risk control, and incident response services, Sera-Brynn empowers clients to manage cyber risk while meeting cybersecurity standards.

Sera-Brynn is the only cybersecurity firm in North America directly partnered with a multi-billion-dollar financial institution. This provides us unique insight and experience with the compliance needs of the financial services industry.


Sera-Brynn is one of a few companies globally to be both an ISO/IEC 17020:2012 FedRAMP-certified assessor and PCI Qualified Security Assessor. Why is this important?  Because achieving compliance with industry and government cybersecurity frameworks will mitigate risk.  Our certifications enable us to support a single organization’s multiple compliance efforts, often at the same time, reducing risk more efficiently.

Some examples of our certifications:

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.
