TechForing – Creating a Safer Cyberspace Community
Cyber security is a basic yet important and useful process to protect confidential data. To avoid and protect companies’ confidential data cyber security is developed. Cyber security consists of industry standard of confidentiality, integrity, and availability or CIA. Privacy means data be accessed only by authorities; integrity means the data may be changed or added through the authority whenever needed; availability means data, systems and functions must be available on demand according to authorised parameters.
Here is such a company looking forward to provide safer cyberspace and to unite a cyber community through the work and services.
In this interview with Rabiul Islam, CEO & Managing Director of TechForing, we shall know more about the company’s growth and journey through the hurdles and challenges.
1. Tell us about the company.
TechForing is a premier team of certified cybersecurity professionals. We started in 2014 with only one goal: to provide safer cyberspace for everyone. And since then, we have been delivering best-in-class cybersecurity monitoring and management solutions to corporations, government agencies, and individuals.
Since our conception, we have served security solutions to almost 7000 clients across 90+ countries.
2. What were the initial challenges you faced?
Usually, people get skeptical about new and unfamiliar organizations. They’re more willing to rely on well-known and reputable organizations to resolve their problems. We had to overcome that skepticism with transparency and communication. We were always reachable to our clients and ready to answer any questions they may have. We provided excellent customer service constantly and always asked for feedback that we used to improve our services. These helped us in building trust with our clients and increase our reputation.
The other challenge we faced was finding talents to back up our operations. Again, being a new organization made it difficult for us. Many applicants were willing to work in the cybersecurity field. However, finding fitting candidates was challenging to say the least. Even if we found the right person for the job, we had to show them we had something unique to offer – for them to join our team. We overcame these challenges with clear communication, focusing on the career growth of the talent and building an excellent culture. We were clear about TechForing’s mission and vision; gave applicants a good hiring experience, and provided them with a great environment to work in.
3. Which was that point that triggered the growth of the company?
TechForing’s growth came from research, analysis, and understanding of our customer’s pain points. Cybersecurity services can be lengthy, complicated, and expensive in general. We created our services in a way that focused on alleviating those issues.
We noticed that businesses and individuals were not getting the necessary help they needed during a cyberattack fast enough, which meant they lost the crucial time they needed to mitigate the damage. We aimed to solve that with our quick incident response and introduced services like Digital Forensic Investigation, Crypto scam Investigation, Ransomware Mitigation, Online Blackmail Investigation, Hack Recovery, etc.
4. How have the company graphs changed since the foundation? Can you share a few statistics? (You can share the charts/graphs here).
We have seen massive growth since the foundation of TechForing. Since 2014, we have opened regional offices in Michigan (USA), Istanbul (Turkey), London (UK), Toronto – Ontario (Canada), and Delhi (India). Currently, TechForing employs 300+ experienced in-house cybersecurity experts distributed across four continents. We have provided our services to 1250+ businesses, and 7000+ individual clients from over 90 countries.
5. What is the reason behind your company’s long-standing success?
Dedication and consistency. We have remained true to our core values and beliefs throughout the years. We have created a culture of trust and respect that allows us to build relationships lasting for years. We provide a unique customer experience dedicatedly from the start to the end of a project. By maintaining consistency, we have also been able to maintain our competitive advantage over our competitors.
Our focus on staying true to our core values and beliefs enables us to continue delivering quality services that our customers can depend on. All of it has helped us provide our services for so long successfully.
