Elite leverages built-in feedback mechanisms and community input from our body of experts to minimize platform risk.

Business-to-business. We collect basic information that describes our service providers' primary & secondary service offerings, key strengths, and focus areas.  We then match those against details received from a customer's Service Provider Search request. Prior to presenting profiles, we redact key identifying details from both service provider and customer.

Staffing. Job candidates submit only the data they feel comfortable providing us. Submitting less data means fewer opportunities to be connected with the ideal job, but allowing our experts to control their data and how it is used on our network is basic privacy 101.

As a collaborative network of security and privacy experts, we use pooled feedback from our community to improve our odds of reduced overall platform risk. In doing so, our experience, data collection, and features improve while the platform to continually evolves to the demands of the community and the overall dynamics of the market. No individual expert possibly knows everything there is to know about security or privacy, but as a collective body of experts we can come close.

Elite provides the profiles, platform, branding, matchmaking, engagement workflows and data that give engagement participants consistency and transparency. Service providers set their own prices, use their own standard operating procedures, and are selected by our customer organizations based on merit.  A customer's sensitive data (e.g. network data, network scans, key identified risks) is only to be managed and seen by their selected service provider, as Elite has no business need to see it.

During the business-to-business connection process,redacted profiles are shown to participants on both sides during the preliminary "suggested pairings" phase.  After a customer has narrowed suggested providers down to their finalists will the parties see more detailed information and be able to connect with one another.  This process helps to minimize profile and service request visibility of confidential information, reduces bias during selection, and helps customers feel more comfortable in proactively addressing key risks.

Our staffing service, Job Candidate Search, allows hiring organizations to post jobs and browse the virtual resumes of those experts on the network who have posted them.  Experts explicitly control the data attributes they share for this process. Each virtual resume and job posting leverage skill categories and inventories that allow hiring organizations and job seekers to more effectively find one another and connect.
