Who We Serve

At TEKRiSQ our vision involves helping Trusted Advisors to assist Small to Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) make improvements to their resilience to security incidents, and proactively improve their cybersecurity posture for insurability. SMBs have different levels of awareness; some are well on their path towards preventing a breach, while others suffer from apathy, overconfidence or denial.  Many simply do not yet know where to start. We see a Cybersecurity Digital Divide that separates the technology “Haves” (organizations with mature policies, processes and assets) and the Have-Nots (companies that have not begun to protect themselves in a measurable way.)

What is an SMB?

There are 30+ million small businesses in the United States alone, comprising 99.9% of all businesses. They create two-thirds of net new jobs and drive U.S. innovation and competitiveness. Recent reports shows that they account for 44 percent of U.S. economic activity.

Many cybersecurity companies and solution vendors lack focus on SMBs. They’re busy selling complex “big-tech” solutions on the other side of the divide, where the technology “Haves” make big investments for endless point solutions of every kind.

In a Cisco 2020 SMB Cybersecurity Report, the company defined an SMB as “organizations with 250-499 employees” leaving a massive amount of true SMBs outside of their consideration.

THIS overlooked space (0-250 employees) is the underserved market where TEKRiSQ is focused.

What is a Trusted Advisor?

We refer to the key relationships that most businesses maintain to minimize business risks as Trusted Advisors. Those business risks often include legal, compliance, taxation, regulatory and much more. These organizations need to help their clients move along the continuum of cybersecurity preparedness implementing policies and practices addressing technology risk. We can help each of them uniquely.
