About CISOSHARE

Information security is a complex and complicated field. As technology continues to have a greater impact on our lives and businesses, security touches every part of an organization.

Our team has over 20 years of experience in practical information security program development and management. During our time in the industry, we identified a problem and a need: most security programs don't make sense.

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 continues to grow as we focus not only on delivering the information security program services that organizations need, but also establish 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.
