“I’ve been the CEO of Apex IT Group since launching it in 2007. The company has grown into a thriving, nationally recognized, highly trusted MSP managing the IT services of hundreds of small-and medium-sized businesses across a broad range of industries. 

During these past 13 years, the threat of malicious cyber activity has increased exponentially. This unseen cyber enemy – from spiteful cyberbullies and hacks to globally organized cybercriminal ventures – wreak havoc and even irrevocably cripple businesses of all types and sizes. Far-too-often, these businesses simply didn’t have the awareness, knowledge or resources to defend themselves from complex information security threats.

In an effort to protect my own organization, I began my quest to learn all I could about information security best practices. I became an active participant with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), a collaborative hub where senior-level professionals and researchers from across private, public and academic sectors work together to address businesses’ most pressing cybersecurity issues, and earned the prestigious the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification.

I then applied what I had learned to Apex IT. Using my own business as a testing ground for cybersecurity best practices, I quickly discovered that the realities of standing up a truly effective cybersecurity strategy was much more complex than expected. Needless to say, we learned a lot. 

As fellow business owners learned what we were doing at Apex IT – that we were walking the walk and not just talking the talk when it came to cybersecurity – they increasingly came to us for advice about how to protect their own organizations and hard-won business reputations. 

Why us? They knew that we understood the challenges they faced. 

Now through CounterAct Cybersecurity Group, we have developed a disciplined, systematic, holistic approach to help protect businesses against complex information security threats.

We are you, and we are here to help.”
