September 29th, 2020NCG Academic Partnership with the Upper Peninsula Cybersecurity Institute at Northern Michigan University
Northcross Group (NCG) works with our clients to meet some of their biggest challenges for growth and sustainability in today’s digital business environment.
We leverage our experience in business process and program management, along with our knowledge in technology and cybersecurity to address organizational objectives.
Our mix of technical and business acumen helps ensure that people and processes are part of the approach for success just as much as technology and infrastructure. We make sure this is done securely and in compliance with requirements.
To accomplish tasks, you must take a systemic view of how people, data, and technology interact. In addition, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data must also be considered to produce desired results. This must all be done in a way that supports an organization’s needs and values.
We take a systemic view of every project. We work with the technology pieces, and also with the underlying data and the people that will use it. These fundamentals—technology, data, and people—are all part of the equation for success.
Some consulting firms focus on just one of these fundamental areas, or look at them as separate silos. This approach puts the burden back on the client to bring things together in the end. NCG is different. We make sure that all areas with their interrelationships are covered and provide a complete solution.
We begin our client engagement with a discussion of the client’s challenges and our advice to focus our attention on what needs to be done. Our services emphasize using technology to meet business objectives and elevate businesses to new levels of operations, markets, and profitability. NCG consultants have both practical technology and business experience to use technology to solve business problems. We leverage all of our tools and capabilities to work proactively each and every day to execute and deliver in a wide range of business environments.
We work hard to understand your specific business realities—both the challenges and opportunities. When technology is applied effectively it can leverage new opportunities for a business. However, when there are disconnects, technology can become a frustration or worse to the business. We believe that technology is a set of tools for business with incredible potential.
Changing that potential into tangible business value requires a combination of skills. NCG consultants have both practical technology and business experience. This cross-discipline helps us understand the business challenge, what approach makes the most sense, and how to implement it. Our broad perspective helps us execute and deliver in a wide range of business environments.Learn more about our Past Performance
Compliance and risk management are fundamental concepts for organizations in highly regulated industries to have working effectively and efficiently. When working well, they help an organization protect itself from impact and exposure—even providing benefits for operations and business functions. When they don't work—they are costly, time consuming, frustrating, and can impact your business.
NCG has broad experience across regulatory and industry compliance frameworks. We work with organizations to understand what is needed compared to what are future targets, and develop prioritized roadmaps for your compliance. We approach compliance with a risk management perspective that aligns to an organization's overall risk program.
Effective risk management programs need to align to an organization and its operations—working with them and not against them. We help organizations build risk programs, or enhance existing ones, to be productive assets for the organization.
People are key components to the success and value of compliance and risk management programs. We take an approach of empowering your people for success in dealing with compliance and risk challenges. We provide services and tools to craft sustainable programs with supporting data integration, processes, and infrastructure for your team.Download our Compliance & Risk Management Service Card

We use technology and data to actively engage people and make sure they are focused on the most important tasks. We have tools that are focused on actions that support particular business events. These tools are configured for specific industries and various operation processes.
We are an integration and cybersecurity firm with a proven record in the public, private, and defense sectors. We have supported organizations through complex conversions, migrations, integrations, deployments, and program devilment. NCG has built sustainable programs to better secure, grow, and manage these organizations.
We refer to our tools as Orchestration Tools because they engage and connect different types of users inside and outside an organization with data and work-flows specific to a given objective. While each organization and challenge is unique, Orchestration Tools provide a framework and targeted technology that can orchestrate efforts, save time, reduce frustration, and mitigate risk.
Orchestration Tools are designed to bring people, processes, infrastructure, and data together for a specific purpose. These tools can used for one-time events, or support the sustainability of ongoing programs.
Orchestration Tools help organizations get their arms around important efforts with an execution focus and help people at all levels of the organization work off the same page.
We work in the private sector with highly regulated industries that support critical infrastructure industries (financial services, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, and information technology). We also work with the federal government in the civilian and defense sectors.
Our team has experience working from the perspectives of both the regulator and industries being regulated. We bring to industry in-depth knowledge of regulatory frameworks and guidance.
