SecZetta Strengthens Commitment to Women in Cybersecurity Signing Two New Partnerships with WBENC Certified Women-Owned Cybersecurity Companies
FALL RIVER, MA – June 2, 2020 – SecZetta, the leading provider of third-party identity risk management solutions, today announced that it has signed two new partnerships with Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certified cybersecurity companies, Business Process Solutions (BPS), a trusted advisor in security consulting, and LiquidPC, a global distributor and a trusted advisor to a large variety of diverse product companies. These partnerships both deepen the bench of resources available to SecZetta customers and bring with them the additional benefits offered by promoting women in cybersecurity.
“SecZetta is dedicated to advocating for women in the cybersecurity industry and is working to ensure that our go-to-market strategy reflects that commitment,” said David Pingnolet, CEO and founder, SecZetta. “By partnering with leading WBENC and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) certified companies like BPS and LiquidPC, we are able to bring the value of SecZetta’s solutions to organizations supporting diversity suppliers.”
While statistics have been gradually improving, a report by Cybersecurity Ventures states that women make up just 20% of the cybersecurity workforce, while an (ISC)2 study, brings that number closer to a still unsatisfactory 25%. Advocating for more women in cybersecurity not only brings with it the obvious benefits of diversity in leadership and problem-solving skills, but also helps address the severe resource gap within the industry. For SecZetta, an effective commitment to diversity extends across in-house employment practices to business partner opportunities. We believe advocating for women and women-owned companies is part of an industry-wide shared responsibility and will help ensure that there are adequate cybersecurity resources going forward.
“At BPS, which is also California Public Utility Certified (CPUC) and Woman Small Business (WSOB) certified, we have built a reputation for solving difficult security and compliance problems by delivering world-class solutions for the healthcare industry, public utilities and other highly-regulated industries,” said Katherine Bluma, CEO and founder, BPS. “As the sole woman-owned cybersecurity company in the Southwest, United States, BPS is uniquely able to provide organizations looking to partner with diversity suppliers with SecZetta’s Third-Party Identity Risk solution.”
“For more than 20 years, LiquidPC has promoted a services-first business culture that has made us the partner of choice for vendors wanting exceptional hands-on service and operational expertise,” said Loretta Sivret, co-founder, owner, and CEO. “This new partnership allows us to bring SecZetta’s industry’s first, Third-Party Identity Risk solution, to market with the advantages that only a certified diversity provider can offer.”
