Scarfone Cybersecurity is dedicated to helping media companies, information security companies, Federal agencies, and other organizations with their cybersecurity publication needs. Founded by Karen Scarfone, the company is based on the belief that security professionals will continue to fall behind attackers until we, as a security community, become more adept at communicating the necessary information to each other.
Most security publications today, such as standards and guidelines, are written by experts for experts. This is understandable; most people who write these publications would rather be doing research or other hands-on technical activities. And authors usually haven't been taught how to effectively get their information across to their target audiences.
Scarfone Cybersecurity offers a range of services that can help you and your organization with these challenges. We can write cybersecurity publications, including white papers, articles, and technical standards, for you and with you on a wide variety of topics. We can review and edit your publications to whatever extent is needed, everything from a quick proofread to an in-depth technical review to a complete rewrite. We can also provide mentoring and coaching for security authors who want to improve their publications and make the writing process a less painful experience. Finally, we can share with you our knowledge of certain bodies of security publications, particularly those from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), to save you time in understanding what the requirements of these publications mean to you.
