Our Services

Building a Solid Foundation
Expert FSO was specifically developed for small- and mid-sized organizations working on classified contracts with the government. We understand that many of these organizations do not require a full-time FSO and as a result are not entirely sure they are taking all the proper steps to ensuring the program’s continuation and success. We work with our clients to create their Security program from the onset ensuring that compliance is in place. Additionally, we work with clients advising them on previously established programs to determine compliance via a detailed gap analysis. We provide our clients the comfort of knowing that the program is strategically developed and is always prepared for a Security audit.

Strategic Advisory Services
Many of our clients look to Expert FSO to provide pre-audit inspections. Through the pre-audit process, we are able to uncover areas of vulnerability and address them.

FSO Supplemental Services
Expert FSO is able to supplement your team providing the day-to-day assistance you require. We work with you to develop the security program that fits your organization.
