Citadel Information Group with Dr. Stan Stahl

Citadel Information Group, based in Los Angeles, CA, provides information and security management services to middle market organizations.  Founded in 2002 by Stan Stahl, PHD, and Kimberly Pease, CISSP, our mission is to provide our clients the highest levels of information security management and leadership.  Citadel's commitment to excellence has been documented time after time.  Our people are exceptionally talented.  We are creative problem solvers.  And client-service is our absolute number one priority.

We have extensive middle-market operations and consulting experience so we know what works and, more importantly, what doesn’t. Citadel principals have served as Chief Operating Officer and as Chief Information Officer. Other Citadel Senior Staff have also had executive experience. This means we understand the management constraints and “mind-sets” that can challenge getting information security “just right.” Our security management recommendations are tailor-made to fit a client’s business model so that the organization can meet its information security responsibilities within its budgetary constraints, its own unique culture, and its other business realities.

We believe in giving back to the information security community. We also believe our clients benefit from our extensive involvement in the information security community. It helps us stay sharp and cutting-edge. That’s why Citadel principals—along with other Senior Staff—serve in leadership positions on the Board of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association, why we give information security talks and lectures, and why we regularly publish papers on information security, even with attorneys and other cross-disciplinary colleagues.
