Corzine has led large teams of information security and data governance experts in assessing gaps in the cybersecurity programs of global telecommunications companies, defense contractors and Fortune 500 and mid-market companies in numerous industry sectors. These teams conducting expert risk and gap assessments, help defense contractors meet DFARS and CMMC requirements, develop effective compliance strategies and remediation roadmaps through continuous process improvement, and guide implementation of clients' cybersecurity programs.

Corzine has provided advisory services for leading credit rating agencies around the cybersecurity threat to "backbone" systems of elements of critical national infrastructure, and how system compromise could cascade through member institutions and create widespread impact. His specialized teams have been asked by utilities and transportation authorities and airports to conduct cybersecurity risk assessments of their industrial control systems (ICS), business continuity programs, and approach to enterprise risk management.

In the federal government sector, he has been Principal Investigator on two research teams engaged by the Airport Cooperative Research Program of the Transportation Research Board of The National Academy of Sciences, and by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The ACRP teams studied and reported on resilience issues in the US airport sector and developed custom software products to assist airports in developing their business continuity and emergency management plans.

In the education sector, he has led teams that have been engaged by numerous universities, colleges and large public school systems to review their safety, security and emergency management programs, staffing and training, develop effective new crisis management plans, provide training and tabletop exercises, and build continuity of operation plans.
