At C-Forward, protecting our client’s information is our top priority. Cybersecurity is a growing need in our community as cyber crime increases and our technology gets smarter. Bryan Cobb, our virtual Chief Information Officer, (vCIO) is one of many at C-Forward who is dedicated to keeping our clients safe and happy.
Cobb oversees all of C-Forward’s vCIO services. Cobb states, “The vCIO process consists of a set of standards that our team uses to audit our clients. Once the audit is complete, I review everything and convert all of the technology deficiencies into business risks that the client can understand. It’s all about the client understanding how their business is at risk if they do or don’t do something as it relates to their technology.”
Cobb is proud of the work that he has done with C-Forward over the years and all of the accomplishments the C-Forward team has made together. One project that Cobb is currently working on is a new cyber security solution. Cobb states, “We are currently working on a really cool cyber security solution that we are close to being able to offer to our customers. I’ve been able to take this initiative from ground zero and see it through to where it is today and hopefully where it will be tomorrow. It’s very exciting! Shameless plug: If you see this and your business is worried about Cyber Security (ransomware, cyber crime), please reach out to me!”
Cobb believes that C-Forward lives up to their mission statement of being Personal, Proactive, and Reliable. Cobb states, “Our vCIO/auditing service and what our technicians do every day is very proactive and we also make sure we hire technicians and engineers who are reliable and personal. When our clients succeed, we succeed, so we definitely view it as a partnership!”
Outside of work, Cobb enjoys spending time with his family, working on construction projects around his house, and being an active participant in his community. Cobb says, “I’ve always been involved in community service and I’ve pretty much done it all. From starting a “Father Involvement program” at my kid’s school, to participating in Leadership NKY, being Cub Scout leader, coaching soccer, sitting on the Boone County Education Foundation’s board, and now sitting on the NKY Makerspace steering committee.I’ve been very active in the community, and C-Forward has been very helpful, as ‘Community success’ is part of the company’s mission.”
Bryan Cobb is an integral part of the C-Forward team and we cannot wait to see what he accomplishes next!
