Suffolk, Va., May 18, 2016 — Sera-Brynn retained its elite ranking in the Cybersecurity Ventures list of top cybersecurity firms in the world, remaining no. 1 in Virginia and moving up to no. 10 in the U.S. on the strength of its holistic risk management services.

“Addressing cyber security requirements and response activities is more and more becoming a community-based approach,” said Sera-Brynn CEO Rob Hegedus. “From the very beginning, Sera-Brynn believed the best way to protect businesses and organizations from the increasing onslaught of cyber threats and regulatory requirements was through a team effort with the legal, insurance and financial services industries. Our approach continues to be validated by this rapidly changing market and our position within the Cybersecurity 500 is another indicator that we’re on the right track.”
