Built with the approach that customers have the right to protect themselves from the cyber threats of the day, Apollo strategists are leaders who are not consultants, but instead those with practical experience who have been accountable to protect companies themselves in the real world.
CISO Insights was founded by Dave Tyson and industry leading security operators and advisors and caters to the unique needs of CEOs and Boards as well as CIO’s and CISOs as the complexity of keeping their companies safe, secure and compliant increases. Tyson will assume the roles of President of Apollo Information Systems and Chief Security Officer. Tyson will lead the company’s strategy and security risk advisory services.

Other security industry experience includes Chief Security Officer for Vancouver, Canada, Host City of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
“Businesses require more than technology to be protected against today’s sophisticated cybersecurity threats and complex regulatory requirements,” said Mike Guglielmo, CEO of Apollo. “With the addition of the CISO Insights, our clients have access to a team of top tier security leaders to assist them with developing and implementing an effective security strategy and program for their business, cost effectively and efficiently using CISO Insights expertise and proven techniques.”
“Apollo Information Systems has been my trusted security solution provider for over ten years” said Dave Tyson. “The merger of the two companies enable me to provide our Security Advisory clients with leading edge technologies, excellent service, and competitive prices needed to implement their security program.”
“This is the kind of leadership we bring to our customers,” CEO Mike Guglielmo said of Bennett, who until recently was Deputy CISO for the state of Texas and fought cyber criminals and defended over 100 ransomware attacks in three years, “CISO Insights has world class experience that our customers need and has been directly accountable so they can advise our customers from a customer perspective. In this COVID-19 world clients often need advice that is different, maybe it's not a new technology, but use what you have more effectively, or use a more effective cutting-edge technology to get better results.”
Now that the merge is complete, Apollo will immediately expand its service offering to deliver direct access to CISOs that will customize solutions to the specific needs of every business and industry.
