Our Culture

Shaped by our philosophy and guided by our leadership principles, CSS’ culture is one of achievement, success, and individual accountability – to each other and our clients – thriving on challenges. CSS team members are well-rounded individuals who take pride in applying technical expertise to what really matters – business value. Each employee is encouraged to constantly push themselves and the organization to greater heights – resulting in an organization that focuses on making what some may see as extremely difficult, attainable.

Our co-workers share a deep respect for the individual and foster good citizenship in both our industry and local communities. To ensure that we continue to be a great place to work, we consciously maintain a balance among work, family and friends, and play.

Our Team Philosophy

At CSS, we are confident of our future and point with pride to the way we run our business. Our team develops long-term relationships that promote our clients’ growth and prosperity. In turn, we value each other’s creativity and productivity, and encourage independent thinking by creating an atmosphere that fosters trust, respect, and community. As part of that trust, we openly communicate both our accomplishments and mistakes, so we can learn from each other and our clients can benefit.

Our leadership principles

Our leadership principles shape CSS management practices, provide performance guidelines, and establish shared values:

  1. Recruit highly talented professionals
  2. Create a learning environment
  3. Establish clearly defined objectives
  4. Exceed financial benchmarks
  5. Expect accurate and timely reporting
  6. Build focused career development paths
  7. Develop superior tools
  8. Provide compensation that attracts the best people
  9. Recognize performance at every opportunity
  10. Enable accountability by fostering a culture of ownership

The Four Tenants Guiding our Work

CSS views information security as a dimension of quality. Regardless of whether a client needs to manage digital certificates or needs to design and implement an entire cryptographically-secure environment or we are upgrading our software and services, we approach each opportunity using a lens of quality management and see it as a continuous improvement process. We employ quality management tools and techniques utilized across many industries to reduce costs and improve the security posture of global organizations. Our work is governed by the following four tenants:


  • Our recommendations and advice are not influenced by platform or technology bias
  • We respect and honor our commitment to client confidentiality
  • We take accountability for the results of our advice


  • We optimize the use of people, processes, and technology in order to establish and implement securities best practices
  • We add business value by providing the best, most practical and most cost-effective solution possible
  • We build solutions that provide long-lasting business value


  • We treat security as a dimension of quality
  • We carefully inspect and audit our work
  • We finish engagements on time, on budget, and to scope


  • We provide accurate and timely information in light of risk and consequence
  • We openly accept challenge and exercise thought leadership to shape and set industry standards
  • We will not accept client engagements where we can’t succeed
