  1. Enable Bramble sales by providing customers information and assurance about our information security program and remove security as a barrier to adoption by our customers.
  2. Enable security to scale through the definition of security controls and determining the boundaries and applicability of the information security management system to establish its scope.
  3. Work across industries and verticals to support Bramble customers in their own compliance journey.
  4. Identify and mitigate Bramble information security risk through continuous control monitoring and automation.
