The Cybersecurity Help You’ve Been Looking For

Started by serial entrepreneur Derek Harp, The Cyber List is based on his twenty-five plus years serving in the US Navy, the field of cybersecurity and as founder or CEO of multiple SMB companies. In recent years, Derek has received a sharply increasing number of personal communications from business owners asking for help on cybersecurity. Though he has endeavored to help many on an individual basis, Derek founded The Cyber List to systematize his knowledge and relationships in order to help many more companies than he could by himself. Now you can engage a TCL Cybersecurity Advocate to advise, mentor and guide you through the process.

When you engage The Cyber List, you gain the power of an army of security veterans in Derek’s list, who collectively provide counsel and insights in all areas of cybersecurity. You can harness the best in the business who each have decades of experience with large and small companies alike in providing guidance and support in incident response, threat mitigation, penetration testing, business continuity planning, disaster recovery, employee awareness training, enterprise resource planning and more.
