About Us


ComplianceForge specializes in cybersecurity documentation. We are an industry leader in providing affordable, editable and scalable documentation solutions to support cybersecurity and data privacy compliance efforts. Our products serve as a business accelerator, where we do the heavy lifting for our clients so their cybersecurity and IT staff can focus on the roles they were hired to do. Essentially, we help our clients stay in business by providing the necessary policies, standards, procedures and other documentation they need to address their cybersecurity and data privacy compliance obligations in the most efficient manner possible. We leverage industry-recognized secure practices so our solutions can scale from Fortune 100 multinationals with complex compliance requirements, all the way down to micro-small companies that just need single solutions, such as PCI DSS or CMMC compliance.


Since 2005, ComplianceForge has been selling cybersecurity documentation to businesses around the world. Our clients range from the Fortune 100, to government agencies to small and medium businesses. The reason we have such a broad reach across both industries and organization sizes is that our documentation is designed to be scalable and align an organization with an applicable framework. We understand that "a standard is a standard for a reason" and that is a fundamental concept in how we develop our solutions so requirements can be clearly addressed.

ComplianceForge's mission is to serve as a business accelerator - we provide affordable cybersecurity and data privacy solutions of the highest quality to save our clients both time and money in meeting their specific statutory, regulatory and contractual compliance needs. Our business model allows us to sell our documentation solutions at a small fraction of the cost when compared to hiring a consultant to custom-develop documentation or writing it in-house with your existing staff. Additionally, our products are usually delivered via email the same business day. Our focus is on Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and we fully-understand cybersecurity and privacy are necessary for organizations to protect not only their clients, but their employees and partners. With our comprehensive documentation, we enable companies to efficiently become and stay compliant with common cybersecurity and privacy requirements. 

We continuously innovate and share those ideas to better the industry. In additional to helping launch the Secure Controls Framework (SCF) as an independent company, ComplianceForge is notable for:

Cybersecurity Documentation Done Right - A Standard Is A Standard For A Reason

In our ongoing commitment to provide excellent customer service, we feel compelled to make sure businesses have the support they need for their cybersecurity and privacy needs. This is where we make a difference and decrease the liabilities associated with running a business, since businesses rely too much on their IT resources to let amateurs provide guidance. The liabilities are too great to take chances. We fill the niche skillset of writing quality cybersecurity and privacy documentation that is comprehensive, scalable and affordable.

What Makes Us Special 

We are specialists within the cybersecurity and privacy professions, where our focus is on Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). Our comprehensive documentation helps companies become and stay compliant with cybersecurity and privacy requirements.

Our Beliefs 

We are here to help businesses that lack this special knowledge & experience. Simple truths that we believe in include: 

  • Cybersecurity & privacy documentation is too important to be left to amateurs;
  • Every business needs appropriate policies, standards and procedures to be able to demonstrate due diligence and due care efforts;
  • Our solution should be affordable and scalable to encourage growth; and
  • Documentation should be written in business-friendly language that is both scalable and concise, yet comprehensive.

Our vision at ComplianceForge is based on the core understanding of the necessity for businesses of all sizes and industries to adopt security practices to protect their interests, including their customers, their employees, and their partners.
