WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The word Natsar is from the Hebrew language that translates to the following: to watch over, to guard with fidelity, to preserve, to keep secret, a watchman. These words describe Natsar perfectly – a company dedicated to teaching our clients about data privacy, information security, digital security, and evidence preservation, among many other things.
Our logo was designed to reflect these truths. The main part of the logo is a shield, representing the protection we help our clients provide and the top, like an old watchtower – signifying Natsar’s focus on guarding organizations and their data. The slanted letter N for Natsar separates the logo. The colors originate from the state of New York flag.
