Director, Managed Security Services

February 21, 2022


Be Part of Something Incredible. We’re building a powerful company with a unique culture of relentless execution to save American businesses from global cybersecurity chaos. We’re looking for a special breed of people… Sharp-witted, Highly Intelligent, Super-Collaborative Low-Ego men and women from diverse technology backgrounds to reimagine technology risk resilience.

Small and Medium-Sized Businesses are at significant risk of becoming victims of cybersecurity chaos. Most fall on the wrong side of a digital divide that favors the have’s (large companies with CISOs, Solutions, etc) over the Have-Nots (SMBs with little or no defenses.) We’re working hard to change that by diagnosing, remediating and transferring risk to build fast resilience in this space.


TEKRiSQ INC is a Ponte Vedra, Florida based Delaware Corporation founded in 2021.  TEKRiSQ’s software platform and processes help small and medium sized businesses to diagnose exposure to technology risk, and easily adopt actionable risk management practices in a simple and affordable manner.  TEKRiSQ sells Risk Assessment Products, SaaS subscriptions, products, and services directly to business customers through a network of trusted advisors.
