Why Us

When your future is challenged, experience is critical

Founded by incident response, cyber security and IT professionals, VRICyber is cyber security consulting firm uniquely positioned to protect law firms from cyber security threats outside and inside the firewall, and respond to breaches. Expertise in digital forensics and incident response helps our clients sleep better at night.

IT departments like to think they have everything under control, but the statistics do not support that. Every company that gets hacked once had a very confident IT professional that believed they didn’t need to bring in cyber security consultants to help.  And honestly, it may be that employees are not following IT’s direction.

Most cannot see around corners, but our experience in cybersecurity and digital forensics helps us identify threats on the horizon, virtually seeing into the future.

Specialization is the key to offering an excellent service- and we do only one thing: secure attorneys and law firms from cyber threats.
