Our Story

At SecureStrux, our journey began with the vision and expertise of our founder and CEO, Nathan Shea. With a rich background leading Vulnerability Assessment Teams and contributing to the development of organization-wide cybersecurity programs, Nathan’s extensive experience included serving esteemed entities such as the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Joint Service Provider (JSP) Pentagon, US Cyber Command, the US Army War College, and various other Department of Defense agencies and defense contractors.

Driven by a passion to effect real change, Nathan recognized the pressing need for transformative action in the face of stagnant cybersecurity practices. Motivated by this urgency, he pivoted his focus toward helping organizations achieve greater visibility, assurance, and resilience. Along with the team at SecureStrux, Nathan developed a comprehensive ‘road map to success,’ guiding organizations in prioritizing activities and funding to reduce their risk and bolster their security postures.

In collaboration with DISA and the JSP Pentagon, SecureStrux played a pivotal role in building JSP’s original Command Cyber Readiness Inspection (CCRI) team and actively contributed to the program’s launch. As SecureStrux progressed, they assembled a team of highly skilled security architects and engineers dedicated to building secure networks. We also brought on board information system security officers and system administrators who manage continuous monitoring activities with meticulous care.

Over the past decade, our expertise has grown and extends beyond mere compliance; we specialize in designing, deploying, engineering, and accrediting classified networks and systems from the ground up, integrating robust security measures right from the inception, emphasizing the importance of security being an integral part of every system’s foundation.
