Who We Are
Omnistruct is leading the charge, preparing organizations to make security and privacy programs work so businesses can keep sensitive consumer data sacred that has been entrusted to them by customers and partners. Established more than 20 years ago, Omnistruct is headquartered in Sacramento, California along with expertise located in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boise, and Denver.
Beyond Risk Reduction
We have been doing cybersecurity audits for 25 years. We realized that the biggest cybersecurity issue facing companies is not the tools they are using. The companies we audited that had policies for compliance, weren’t practicing them. Most companies scrambled to get ready for audits which not only showed their disorganization, but they were unable to show proof of their compliance. We grew to believe that there was a better way and that we could help companies make cybersecurity compliance part of their culture. That was how Omnistruct came about.
With the rate of ransomware attacks and data breaches, we believe that most companies are too reliant on technology to protect them. We believe that true cybersecurity goes beyond simple compliance and way beyond what technology can do. We use the NIST CSF Framework which allows us to integrate with other compliance requirements such as HIPAA, PCI, or CMMC.
Because we found that too many companies didn’t have cybersecurity programs at all and were just spending money on cybersecurity band-aids instead of following a comprehensive plan. When these companies received a questionnaire from their biggest customer or a cyber-insurance provider started asking tough questions that didn’t have good answers, that was where we could provide the biggest value. Omnistruct builds, maintains, and provides proof of cybersecurity compliance for companies that helps them to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity program to become part of their company culture.
Co-founded by President John Riley and CEO George Usi, Omnistruct’s mission is to help the other 98% of businesses prepare for when cyber compliance matters by offering simple cyber security and privacy programs that work. These programs include the new US guidelines in cyber security and privacy, designed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), to go well beyond technology and reduce the risk of sophisticated hackers.
