Lionfish Cyber Security

By-With-Through Model™ for SMBs

We follow the “by-with-and-through” mentality of the Army special forces, because we are seasoned vets who understand the enemy.  The definition of the By-With-Through (BWT) strategy underscores that operations are led by partners, like Lionfish, who enable support through the company leaders with technologies and policies tied to your capabilities.

We apply a similar thinking to how we stack your defenses to prepare for cyber attacks.  With unfulfilled cyber jobs around 500,000 and growing in today's workforce, The BWT empowerment channels are absolutely needed. We help you achieve the highest standards necessary for cyber readiness.


The Department of Defense (DoD) lays out more than 150+ cyber security capabilities that can be managed to protect small businesses. These capabilities and levels are outlined in the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) requirements. Most small businesses will opt to complete levels 1-3 of the CMMC to get ahead and protect themselves from cyber threats. Why not you?

We know that downstream the lionfish await, so be armed and dangerous with the empowerment channels in our By-With-Through Model™ and Cyber Tackle Box platform. 

Get the upper hand and set your sights on knowing the ropes:

  • Timely mentorship and access to peer-to-peer forums
  • Trainers and instructors who have battled the enemy, now working for you
  • A channel of guidance that works through a system of checks and balances
  • Managed services that simplify implementation
  • On-time, on-budget learning for teams working on a daily basis, offering checklists, measured approaches, and benchmarks for today’s threat landscape


We have an interactive, asynchronous virtual empowerment channel, on-the-job training (OJT) and participation through a mentoring program.  Agile, adaptative and tailored to your needs. 

We are your beacon…

61% of small businesses have experienced a cyber-attack in the past year according to a recent report.  Cyber threat incidents must be handled directly and from the plan with knowledgeable team members at your organization.  With Lionfish Cyber Security™, we provide the vision to head off data breaches, and address cyber vulnerabilities head on.


We reach out to assist companies who contract with the DoD to be prepared for the required CMMC audits. Organizations can utilize the Lionfish By-With-Through Platform™ (BWT) approach, with our interactive virtual training system, dedicated to outlining the groundwork for implementing the CMMC practices.
