Company History: TrustedSec, LLC was founded on the belief that the information security industry is in need of extremely tailored and niche services aimed around maturing a company’s security program. The founder, David Kennedy, started off his career working for the National Security Agency (NSA) and then went on to become the Chief Security Officer (CSO) for a Fortune 1000 company. At this company, he built one of the industry’s cutting edge security programs from the ground up. We understand the nature of business and the hurdles needed to develop a security conscience culture within an organization. Having built a number of security programs and matured organizations’ security posture, TrustedSec is one of the leading security consulting firms in the nation. Instead of being “just another vendor”, TrustedSec prides itself on establishing a long-term relationship with our customers by establishing trust and making sure we are only offering services that will enhance the security of our clients. Our team is made up of highly-skilled and technical leaders in security that have the ability to communicate to the business in a way that everyone understands. Our goal isn’t to provide just a penetration test or a risk assessment, but to ensure that the company progresses in a maturity model towards successfully defending against attacks. Successful security programs are built with the idea that the entire organization promotes security.
