January 24, 2022 CynergisTek, Inc.

CynergisTek has signed a new contract with a well-known philanthropic non-profit to provide a security risk assessment and remediation support in 2022.   

AUSTIN, TX (January 24, 2022) – CynergisTek (NYSE American: CTEK), leading cybersecurity, privacy, compliance, and IT audit firm helping organizations in highly regulated industries navigate emerging security and privacy issues, announces it has signed another new six-figure engagement, this time to provide a security risk assessment with remediation support for a well-known philanthropic non-profit located on the west coast. 

Through this engagement, CynergisTek will be able to help the organization assess its current cybersecurity programs and defenses, provide advisory and mitigation support building organizational resilience associated with the risks of today, and validate that their programs are ready to stand up to the current threat landscape. “We are seeing momentum in the market and continued demand for both our consulting and managed services offerings from new and existing clients,” says Mac McMillan, CEO and President of CynergisTek. “Our goal is both short and long term growth through partnerships and new contracts such as this one are key components of our go-forward strategy.”

CynergisTek has one of the most thorough assessments in the industry based on appropriate frameworks. The company’s technical testing services take an offensive security approach, turning simulated attacks into proactive evaluations to determine weaknesses in defenses and to validate whether an organization’s people, processes, and technology are working as expected. With CynergisTek’s addition of new services focused on proactive vulnerability identification and evolvement of its CAPP/RPP and other managed services, the company has provided more flexibility and options for designing support for clients’ needs that more closely align with where their current programs are and what their goals and strategic objectives are. The goal is to build stronger resilience and readiness through a more proactive approach to managing risk to help organizations meet today’s threats. “Our mission has always been to build a strong cybersecurity and privacy partnership with clients and to provide the solutions and know-how needed to make a positive impact to strengthen our clients’ defenses against adverse events like ransomware attacks, and our team continues to evolve our services as well as our capabilities,” said Walter Zuniga, Managing Partner at Backbone Consultants, a Division of CynergisTek.
