Our Premium Offering kicks off with a series of hands-on workshops to review your current security posture, identify gaps, and create a plan for addressing them.
access to experts
“The Carbide team made it easier for us to understand what needed to get done rather than try and spend a lot of time figuring out the regulations. They know what they’re doing, and they’re able to help guide us through the process."
Expert-led workshops to strengthen your security posture
Focus on the framework you care most about
If you’re looking to meet a specific framework or standard, our DRIVE (Design & Review, Implement, Validate, Evolve) Approach to framework adoption and regulatory compliance keeps you on track for your timeline.

Design & Review
Design & Review
Design Program and Review Posture
We’ll help you assess your existing security posture and then define, design, and review a security program that fills the gaps and meets your security objectives.
Carbide will collaborate with you to recommend which framework(s) and controls to focus on first. We’ll help you define your goals and set realistic timelines.
Policy & Governance Workshop
In this hands-on workshop, we’ll review and finalize key components of the governance policy and build the associated project (with assigned owners and status) within the Carbide Platform.
Risk Management Workshop
In our second workshop, we’ll get inputs from your team and collaborate to run a risk assessment process using the Carbide methodology. In the end, we’ll identify areas for remediation.
Following our two workshops, Carbide will provide a gap analysis that flags any discrepancies and provides recommendations on necessary modifications to satisfy compliance requirements and objectives.
Implement Policies, Procedures, & Controls
In phase 2, our team will facilitate additional workshops to help define the foundation of your program. We’ll use the Carbide platform to review and manage progress as you implement the security controls we define together.
In Phase 2, we’ll run workshops focused on different aspects of information security, including employee security, software development security, physical / asset / network security, and security management.
Data Privacy Workshop
In this workshop, we’ll review privacy best practices and/or requirements, with a particular focus on Data Classification, Privacy, Privacy Notices, and Data, Retention, and Destruction.
Incident Response & Management Workshop
During our IR workshop, we’ll go through a tabletop exercise based on scenarios we derived from the risk assessment. You’ll walk away with a report on the results of the exercise and an incident response plan.
Weekly Vulnerability Scanning
As part of this implementation package, Carbide provides you access to a weekly vulnerability scan that you can use to identify and remediate new issues.
Validate & Audit Your Security Posture
Time to show off your hard work.
Whether or not your goal is auditable compliance, you’ll want to be able to demonstrate your security posture to prospects and customers. In phase 3, we’ll give you the tools you need to showcase your commitment to security.
An Audit Checklist
Based on your unique environment, Carbide’s develops a complete checklist to help prepare for and manage the internal audit process.
Where an external audit is needed or desired, Carbide can provide guidance on evaluating auditors and will be available to help as you navigate the audit process.
Carbide will produce a formal attestation and security report to demonstrate adherence to a particular framework or control.
Evolve & Operationalize Security and Privacy
Following the completion of the Validation Phase, it’s time for you to operationalize your program for long-term success and advance your new security posture as you grow and enter new markets.
In this phase, you’ll get a dedicated success manager who can identify ways to improve program effectiveness and project efficiency. Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll get.
Security Program Assessment
Twice a year, Carbide will review your program against previously identified controls and frameworks to determine if changes have occurred that negatively affect your compliance.
Advice on Changing Recommendations
Carbide will identify changes in best practices or framework requirements and provide recommendations to keep you aligned and secure.
Annual Risk and IR Workshops
We’ll reevaluate your risk matrix and IR plan annually, conducting a tabletop exercise and adjusting your plan accordingly.
Annual Attestation & Report
Every year, we’ll produce a formal attestation and security report that can be shared with customers and prospects to demonstrate adherence to a particular framework or control.
Weekly Vulnerability Scanning
With an upgrade to our Ongoing Premium Service, you’ll continue to get access to a weekly vulnerability scan that you can use to identify new issues.
