With Meltz, Helm is poised to continue to exceed expectations in delivering insights and high-impact outcomes to their clients.

“Today, all businesses face incredible cybersecurity and risk challenges—from external threats, budget constraints, information overload and the lack of employee engagement and training. You need a detailed plan, and everyone has to be on the same page. It’s not just about purchasing products but the need to craft a custom solution based on the unique needs of the business. It takes a detailed plan, internal buy-in, effective implementation and ongoing, continuous improvements.”

He brings unique experience and perspective having been an IT Security executive for a firm that grew from $400M to a $5.3B in annual revenue during a time of exponential growth in the Cyber-threat environment. Protecting a business while enabling its growth is the challenge, and Mike has met that challenge. His real-world qualifications will be valuable to our clients in identifying their most important security vulnerabilities and developing an action plan to execute, measure and adapt in today’s increasingly challenging threat environment.”
Since 1987, Meltz has worked in the IT field and he specializes in the implementation of enterprise-level technologies and business process improvements. His goal is to remain focused on creating a secure and quality-driven user experience while helping the organization grow and thrive.
