Security and Risk Consulting

We listen. We talk. We share.

Dell SecureWorks’ Security & Risk Consulting Services provides expertise and analysis to help you improve your security posture, facilitate compliance, reduce risk and improve your operational efficiency.

We listen to your concerns, needs and feedback so that we may deliver a service experience that exceeds your expectations. We strive to act as an extension of your team through clear, regular communication and updates. We speak honestly and openly to our customers about risks and gaps we see and how to adapt your organization to them. We share our knowledge and experience with you and your team.  

We are connected, knowledgeable and passionate.

Security, risk and compliance landscapes are changing all the time. That’s why we are committed to staying on top of new security, and industry and regulatory trends. 

Security & Risk Consulting Services - About UsConnected.

We believe in the importance of being connected. We believe that being connected to experts in our Counter Threat Unit(sm) and Security Operations Centers, to experts across our industry, to various security and compliance organizations is critical to effectively addressing our customers’ needs and improving their security, risk and compliance postures.


We believe in sharing our knowledge and experience with our customers, with the security and compliance community at large, and with audiences at the various venues we present at or participate in. Knowledge sharing or “knowledge transfer” is an important part of each engagement. We feel that doing so improves the security posture of the customers we serve. 


You have to be passionate about security to serve customers well in this industry. Our consultants take security to a new level both professionally and personally. Professionally, many of our consultants present at conferences, conduct educational webcasts, contribute to dialogue in the security and risk industry, participate in standards and best practices bodies or share their knowledge with other experts in our industry and our customers in both the private and public sector. Personally, some of our consultants have been known to run their own practice labs in their homes, tinker with applications out of curiosity, or pursue a litany of security certifications in their spare time.

What our consultants deliver

Control costs: Doing security right means doing what you can to address security gaps and risks within your budget and planning for the future.  

Good news, not just the bad: We validate positive security efforts as well as existing gaps. 

Knowledge transfer: We work as a partner with your existing team and knowledge transfer is built into our services. 

Best practices for your company and industry: We focus on identifying which best practices make the most sense for individual customers and industries. 

Industry benchmarks: We help organizations understand how they measure up against their peers, and have expertise in a variety of industries, including healthcare, banking & securities, government, education and manufacturing, just to name a few. 

“How to comply” vs. “You don’t comply”: We provide customers with insights into not only what the problems are, but why they have them and how to fix them. 

Smart use of existing resources: We help organizations leverage their existing infrastructure investment and resources to lower overall costs. 

Actionable information: Our “right sized” reporting focuses on delivering information at the appropriate level for your audience. Our risk-prioritized approach ensures you get the right information to make the right decisions to protect your organization.  

Right mix of tools and people: Tools are a great way to automate tasks and keep costs down, but there’s no replacement for a consultant’s experience and expertise. We use the right mix of both to make sure we give you a top quality service within your budget,
