Job Description

The SightGain Readiness Platform is the only solution focused on cybersecurity readiness.

This approach enables organizations to provide targeted training and make improvements across cybersecurity people, process, and technology. SightGain finally enables decision makers to identify the security investments that will best defend against real-world adversaries, versus relying on assumptions and compliance checklists.
