About AST

The AST Group Cybersecurity Group, Inc. was established in 2009.We are a member of the Society of Technical Communications, the Schaumburg Business Association, and 25 N Coworking.

Our Mission Statement

AST is a world-class cybersecurity content firm. We focus on quality, easy-to-understand technical and marketing content for cybersecurity and technology companies ranging from small to Fortune 500. Our main line of business is content generation.  Many cybersecurity firms try to write their content in house; however, the content they create can be too technical to understand.

Similarly, firms often hire Digital Marketing companies to write content, and too often all they are focused on are SEO and high Google Rankings.  At AST Cybersecurity, our mission is to bridge this gap.

We create content that not only has that technical value add, but we also compose it in a way that it will be very easy for you to understand, consume, and apply it to your daily lives.  Our writing staff has a deep understanding of both the technical and business aspects of Cybersecurity, and we have written many books on the subject.

In the end, our goal is to keep you cyber safe by bringing quality content to you to in order to make a difference in the world that we live in.

Our offices are in the Greater Chicago area. We are also an independent editor and publisher of Biometric News and Information.  Our writing technologies include that of Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visio, MadCap Flare, Adobe Technical Communication Suite, Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud, Atlassian Confuence, Snag It, Camtasia, Microsoft Azure, and the Amazon Web Services (AWS).
