Corporate Overview

Brier & Thorn helps organizations build value by taking a critical thinking approach to managing IT risk. This approach helps our clients focus on their areas of increased risk, bridge silos to effectively manage risk across organizational boundaries and seek not only risk mitigation, but also pursue intelligent risk taking as a means to value creation.

Albert Einstein once said, “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” They certainly won’t be solved by one person; even, and especially, the one “at the top.”


Two orphanages in Tijuana, Mexico — one orphanage with orphans born with HIV, were surprised for Christmas this year by Brier & Thorn Mexico and Brier & Thorn Inc employees with truckloads of Christmas presents.


With networking, mentoring and training opportunities, we help ensure a workplace of equality. At Brier & Thorn, the LGBT community is not simply included, but holds many of the executive leadership positions at this firm globally.
