The TekLinks team is excited to announce the addition of a testing and consulting group to our robust security portfolio! The Cybersecurity Consulting Group aims to partner with organizations to help identify, quantify, and eliminate business risk as it relates to security.
"Regardless of how an organization consumes IT services, our team is focused on empowering business leaders with the ability to create a robust culture of security throughout their IT infrastructures as well as their organizations," says TekLinks’ President Don Monistere. “We can conduct risk assessments, penetration testing, security-awareness training, and password cracking services to help businesses get a clear picture of their risk and vulnerability.”
The consulting group is co-led by cybersecurity experts Nick VanGilder (pictured left) and Will Enochs. "These two security powerhouses have years of experience in penetration testing and securing networks for billion-dollar organizations," says Monistere. “We are proud to have recruited two of the most capable and knowledgeable experts in the Southeast U.S. to lead this group.”
When not involved in the strategic development of the practice or on client engagements, the team focuses on keeping pace with the quickly evolving and cutting-edge tactics being employed by modern hackers. The Cybersecurity Consulting Group’s certifications include Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).
“Much of mine and Will’s careers have been spent working with highly regulated entities,” says Nick. “I’ve successfully performed advanced penetration testing engagements for a number of nationally recognized organizations.” Nick is currently preparing for the penetration testing certification GPEN.
“Our group takes a consultative approach to helping companies create a culture of security,” says Will. “We aim to inform businesses on where their risks lie and give them a framework on how to improve.”
TekLinks' established security portfolio includes equipment as well as security-as-a-service offerings such as managed firewall, event management, and email protection.
The Consulting Group is hosting a two-part webinar series: Inside a Cyber Attacker’s Mind in November. The team will take participants on a technical deep dive into various cybersecurity topics, including discussion and analysis around the types of tactics and techniques that malicious threat actors are using to breach environments. IT leaders will gain valuable insights from an attacker’s perspective. Learn more here.
