About Us

Company Background

SD7 was founded in 2013 by industry professionals who saw a need for a more personal approach to compliance and technical support. Using their decades of experience providing security and technical services in diverse industries, such as manufacturing, financial services, education, and health care, they formed SD7 with the client in mind.  SD7 has grown into a multi-disciplinary provider of professional services.

Our Philosophy

SD7 believes in partnering with its clients to provide the high quality, professional support in all security and technology needs. SD7 believes in working alongside and embracing the experience that their clients’ personnel bring. Security and technology should support an organization’s mission and objective. If designed correctly, security and technology can improve the work experience and enhance productivity. SD7 has the experience to step in as a valuable partner and do this properly, allowing organizations to focus on their mission and objectives instead of their technology needs.
