Mr. Titcombe played a pivotal role assisting companies and well-known brands navigate the pitfalls of compliance, data protection, and network security.
“Merging with Gigit is a natural fit. There is a tidal wave of CMMC work coming our way, the Gigit/Peak InfoSec merger will bring more resources to Defense contractors and ready them for Conformity Assessments,” said Mr. Titcombe. “My transition to Gigit CISO now allows me to focus exclusively on Information Security consulting and formal cybersecurity assessment services.”
“From a strategic point of view, this acquisition strongly positions Gigit to serve the Department of Defense space,” said Gigit CEO David Jacobs. “Matt is on the cutting edge of the CMMC DoD requirements, which will soon expand throughout the federal government sector, so we are thrilled to have him join us as our CISO.”
