Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

CHICAGO — October 5, 2023 — Sikich today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Overall CyberSecurity Company of the Year” award in the 7th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global information security market today.

Sikich’s cybersecurity team assists clients with information security consulting, fraud management, risk mitigation, and vulnerability detection and prevention. The company’s experts specialize in performing compliance audits, penetration tests, information security and risk assessments, and computer forensic investigations. The team’s service offerings help clients protect sensitive data such as credit card data (PCI DSS), patient data (HIPAA), bank account numbers (GLBA), service provider reviews (SOC 1/2/3), and intellectual property.

Sikich prides itself on providing independent, unbiased, technically qualified security assessments. The company works with leading payment card, financial, restaurant, hospitality, health care, and educational organizations around the world.

The Sikich cybersecurity team has extensive knowledge and experience to help improve an organization’s unique security posture. In addition, the company helps clients achieve compliance within industry standards. Regardless of the standard, Sikich guides clients through compliance validation processes quickly and smoothly.

Sikich also offers a virtual CISO (vCISO) service that offers a dedicated and experienced CISO who can help develop and implement a comprehensive security strategy, manage security risks, and manage compliance efforts for an organization.

“This incredible award belongs to all of our team members, who have worked hard to become specialized experts with the industry experience, education, and certifications necessary to deliver first-in-class cybersecurity services. Our consultants are not just technically adept, they are also business-minded. We’re able to present in the boardroom to reach non-technical C-level executives, and then dive deep into technology details with the CIO or CISO,” said Sikich principal, Scott Wegner. “Our priority is to assist clients in finding solutions that help them meet their business goals, strengthening their resilience. We’re boutique enough to have a strong focus on customer service and large enough to have the resources our clients demand. We’re partners in their security daily—not just once a year to check a box.”

This includes identifying and assessing risks, and developing plans to mitigate or manage those risks,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “The growing sophistication of cyber threats and the increasing importance of cybersecurity means that organizations understand the importance of protecting their assets and data to navigate the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape. Congratulations to Sikich for being our 2023 ‘Overall CyberSecurity Company Of The Year!’”
