Miller Associates, and Bob Schiff, Founder & CEO of cybersecurity company Cydentify Solutions, are pleased to announce the formation of a new business partnership that will address an important, unmet employee/insider cyber security need.

Both Marc Miller and Bob Schiff will continue performing all activities associated with their current consultancies.
Through delivered webinars, seminars, and specific consulting engagements, MILLER+SCHIFF will share their over 50 years experience in HR Management /HR Management Systems (HRMS) and Cybersecurity with mid-size companies wishing to educate their Human Resources executives and full complement of employees on:
Today’s Cyber threat environment/landscape, its effect on the employee population and a given company’s eventual survival.
The role of Human Resourcesin building and delivering “Best Cyber Practices” for its employee workforce, helping individual employees secure their own and their company’s HR (and other) data.
