About Arete

Our Company

Arete is a global cyber risk company whose mission is to transform the way organizations prepare for, respond to, and prevent cybercrime. We are leaders in the cyber incident response business, having worked on thousands of matters since our inception in 2016. When clients engage Arete, they gain access to the world’s leading cybersecurity professionals — anywhere in the world — within hours, not days. We also work with organizations after a cyberattack to harden their systems and controls to help prevent future disruption.

We often partner with insurance carriers and their legal counsel in response to cyber insurance claims and are proud to work closely with these firms who are on the frontlines of keeping businesses and local governments up and running after cyberattacks.

We are a highly data-driven organization that uses the data we collect and the information we curate not only to improve outcomes for our clients but also inform new models and approaches for cyber risk mitigation and underwriting. We believe in the concept of “collective defense” of our economy, infrastructure, and livelihoods against cybercrime and actively work with law enforcement, government entities, and industry consortia to share our findings and best practices.

At Arete, we share a common passion, with uncompromising integrity in all that we do, to help our clients impacted by emerging issues in cybercrime. Through our rapid response and technical expertise, we have significantly reduced the financial impact and business interruption attributed to cyberattacks.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make the world a better place by defending and protecting our clients, customers, and partners from the theft of sensitive data through rapid incident response and deployment of protective measures. 

Arete partners with our clients to reduce the burden and cost of preparing for, detecting, and responding to cyberattacks. Engaging Arete’s team of experts gives our clients the confidence to respond to a data breach and take proactive measures to withstand further attacks. You have access to the world’s leading cybersecurity professionals – anywhere in the world – within hours not days.

We also strive to make a lasting difference by serving others in our communities. Arete supports multiple missions in the areas of education, healthcare, critical human needs, and the environment. 

Our People

Arete experts are an elite team of talented, innovative, and hardworking professionals who are dedicated to serving our clients. We foster their unique creativity, curiosity, and passion to help those impacted by cybercrime by offering a best-of-breed education and career advancement program.

We have teamed with Champlain University and other educational institutions to launch Arete University, a learning program that provides computer-based and live-classroom instruction to Arete employees and college students on tools, techniques, and best practices for cybercrime investigation and defense. Additionally, we have a rich, job-based learning program that allows our staff to work alongside and learn from the leading minds and innovators in the cyber industry.

Our culture is focused on personal growth, achieving excellence in everything we do, and a commitment to giving back to our communities. Through our Arete Cares initiative, we support multiple charitable causes and each member of the Arete team is encouraged to spend up to 10% of their time to volunteer and support important global charities.
