Tech Entrepreneur First African American Owned It Security Company In Tampa
It is often discussed the constant challenges of minorities entering the STEM and Technology field, which is currently on of the most fastest growing fields in the world from software development, networking engineering, machine learning, robotics and more. One of the less glamorous yet most important fields is IT Security, we often see hackers feared or glamourized, but never the amazing work of those who thwart many attacks and push IT Security technology forward. The government has created laws require companies in the healthcare, finance, education and other industries to meet certain standards to protect information. The Tampa area has become a tech hub and certainly a hub of IT Security, so it is not a surprise that an IT Security company catering to those needs has arrived, but this company in particular is very niche. Local entrepreneur Andre Spivey, a software developer, infrastructure, security and cloud expert has created SecNetLab, which caters to the needs of compliance and security for small businesses and work from home individuals. SecNetLab also offers, education to its’ consumers, consults, virus removal and IT assistance. This is the Tampa area’s first African American owned international IT Security firm. Services are offered throughout the U.S., Toronto, Canada and also Uganda at this time. Tampa is become an international hub of IT Security with companies like this being built right here. The company also has a slew of apps coming out. Check out www.secnetlab.com for more information or visit the company on facebook at @SecNetLab.
