While security systems can be programmed to safeguard exactly what we need them to protect, we cannot program the human.

This custom program was also designed to meet compliance and legal requirements.

In 2018, McDermott began the journey to combine with Chicago Bridge and Iron. This combination brought vast scale in their business operations as they doubled in size. McDermott, a company with a leading security posture across the industry pre-merger, was faced with an elevated cyber risk during a time of high vulnerability within a new complex security and infrastructure environment. McDermott’s Cyber Security team successfully overcame the challenge to keep the company and its employees cyber safe while, at the same time, fully integrating security tools and operations in support of combining two companies.
