About CISOSHARE

Our founder Mike Gentile started CISOSHARE in 2015 to continue his work of helping organizations build security programs that addressed their business goals and actually worked, rather than simply adhering to best practices or meeting certification requirements. Our goal is to provide organizations the ability to implement and maintain the comprehensive information security programs required to protect company data in a simple and cost-effective manner.

Located in Southern California, our team establishes a culture of continuous learning and teaching. Our employees have been veterans, current students, and members of the Orange County community. We give back in our 1-1-1 program, where we volunteer a portion of our time and profit to a local cause.
