Echelon about 2

We are built for cybersecurity.

Echelon was born from the idea that cybersecurity isn’t something that a professional services firm can just dabble in. Cybersecurity, privacy and technology risk present major threats that disrupt our way of life. That threat is constantly evolving, so we are too. We see it as our calling to stem the tide. We are all in.

Our Story

Security is Personal

Echelon was built with a purpose. While other cybersecurity professional services firms tout what they do, few can articulate why they do it. We know exactly what drives us - protecting your basic right to security and privacy.

Our origin story begins with our name. The echelon formation creates a staggered but unified front, used to successfully provide excellent range of vision and protection to each participant. From our name, to how we conduct and manage ourselves on a day-to-day basis, we are built to be that trusted ally.

We are Echelon.
Our Philosophy

See Cybersecurity, Clearly

Navigating the cybersecurity landscape can be very confusing and overwhelming without the right experience and guidance. A trusted and honest partner can help you to define your cybersecurity and technology risk strategies with confidence. We set ourselves apart from our competition by focusing on relationships and service above all.

Laser Focused

Managing cybersecurity, privacy and technology risk is at the core of what we do. It is all we do.

Mission + Values Driven

Our clients choose us not only for what we do, but why we do it. It’s our personal mission to make our clients stronger and smarter.

Tailored Solutions + Outcomes

We focus on your needs, not our solutions. By identifying the areas most at risk, we can achieve outcomes with solutions that are tailored for you.

Cyber Community Leadership

Our team takes pride in contributing and participating in our cyber community. It gives us an edge that helps our team and clients stay vigilant.

Founder's Message

We believe that security and privacy are basic human rights.

The cyber threat landscape is littered with persistent and sophisticated actors who are benefitting by disrupting our government, major institutions, privately held businesses, public companies and our individual safety and privacy. SolarWinds and Colonial Pipeline are just the latest headlines.

The organizations constantly bombarded by threats are the same organizations that make it possible for us to fill our cars with gas so we can make tee-ball practice. They hold our life’s savings, they produce the software that runs the flow of traffic on our streets and the grid that powers our homes.

There is only so much difference one person, one idea, one firm can make. This is why, as we serve our clients, we also pledge to serve the greater cybersecurity community that is fighting this battle along with us. We take our mission to heart.
