Who Are We

About Us

Allan Alford Consulting was launched as a boutique cybersecurity consulting practice at the end of 2019, with the intention of helping organizations to accurately understand their cybersecurity posture, and to efficiently implement and manage security programs and projects.

In 2023, Jay Adams came on as partner, and the company changed its name to Alford and Adams Consulting.

The practice is kept small, bringing in a hand-selected team of subject matter experts only as required, to forge long-term relationships with each client and to intimately understand and fulfill each organization’s unique needs.

Beware impostors.  Choose a firm with real-world CISO experience in a variety of verticals and contexts.
