A Message from the Founder

As CEO and president of T.E.N., my passion is, and always has been, empowering people to connect and cultivate relationships. Today T.E.N. is known throughout the information security industry as the leading national technology and security executive networking organization that facilitates peer-to-peer relationships for meaningful connections and progress. Our programs have allowed us to bring together information security leaders in unprecedented ways and create a nationwide community of information security friends and colleagues.

Relationships are what bind us together and move us forward. For more than thirteen years – from the very beginning of the rise of this profession – our recognition programs and executive forums have supported and raised the profile of the Information Security Executive® and impacted their careers in many positive ways.

Beyond helping to elevate the information security industry, one of the greatest rewards has been the opportunity to become a confidential advisor within this community. As a result of our trusted relationships and deep industry knowledge, Information Security Executives® have called upon us for career counsel and corporate leadership has tapped us for candidate recommendations to fill openings for which their recruiters have been unable to source the right candidates.

The encouragement of our ISE® Alumni and community, combined with the number of urgent calls from CIOs, Information Security Executives® and HR talent executives needing help with their efforts to access and recruit to the right people, ignited my passion and inspired me to launch ISE® Talent. With more than two decades of experience in fostering relationships in the IT and information security industries, we are uniquely positioned to make the critical introductions that bring the right information security leadership talent to our clients’ organizations.

To us, recruitment is more than filling a vacant seat – it’s about connecting high-caliber candidates with the right companies to ensure lasting success.
