Business Focus:
We are guided by the Japanese philosophy of kaizen, often translated as to become good through change. Our role is to apply this concept of ongoing improvement to two of the most significant factors in the success of an organization today: the strength of its cybersecurity and the professional development of its employees. As an experienced and trusted partner, we lead commercial and government customers toward conscientious improvements in both of these disciplines.

Kaizen Approach, Inc. provides its commercial customers with cybersecurity expertise that meets their needs, whether it is hands-on service, intermittent high-level advice, or ongoing consultation.  Our Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) program offers cost-effective and high-quality security experience to companies that may not have or need a fulltime CISO.

Kaizen Approach Inc. has been supporting the mission of the IC and DoD through multiple contracts providing Cybersecurity, Cross Domain and IT support solutions. Our cleared employees have decades of experience with technology within government programs.
