New Infosec firm, Halock Security Labs™,formed after successful takeover 
Minority equity partners of Remington Associates perform majority buyout and re-launch as Halock 
Chicago, IL, January 2nd, 2007:
After 30 combined years in the field building aneffective approach for professional services, Remington Associates’ partners TerryKurzynski and Jeremy Simon engineered a bloodless takeover to realize the fullpotential of their philosophy of 
Purpose Driven Security™.
“In order to execute thisvision, we recognized the need to restructure the organization as a hybrid services firm,capable of addressing both the strategic and technical security needs of our clients,”says Terry Kurzynski, Halock’s incoming CEO.
Purpose Driven Security
is Halock’s unique service philosophy that derivessolutions from its client’s strategy or Information Security Policy. “Historically, traditionalinfosec firms have oversold security that may not be ‘appropriate’ for an organization’sneeds,” says Kurzynski.“Most of the traditional security firms have one hammer and everything looks like a nail,thereby putting client’s information assets at risk,” says Jeremy Simon, Halock’s CTOand Partner. “Most vendors approach clients already ‘knowing’ the solutions to solvetheir problems. They have their tools and their goal is to map your needs to their limitedtoolset.”“How could we in good conscience recommend solutions that did not trace back toenterprise security requirements and theInformation Security Policy? Our approachfrom the beginning has been to clarify and harmonize our client’slegislative, regulatory,contractual and business requirements for security, and pair that up to appropriatesolutions,” says Kurzynski. Halock has built a base of loyal clients in the finance,healthcare and retail sectors over the last decade.Halock applies its philosophy systematically; first identifying all of the client’s securityrequirements and developing an appropriate strategy and Information Security Policy;Halock then assesses a client’s ability to meet those requirements. “Only after thesesteps have been taken can we help determine
appropriate
controls for meeting thegaps,” says Simon. “It is the translation from strategy to implementation of controlswhere most traditional firms fall short. We educate and enable our clients to build andmaintain their own Information Security Program. The entire process literally defines
Purpose Driven Security™
