Why Privateers?  

Like the privateers of yesteryear, we are a dedicated group of individuals, who are in fact, individuals, not part of a corporate cog.  Our reputation, and livelihood depends on our last engagement.  Not on an employment contract.  We love what we do, and we do it with passion.

Our firm specializes in three areas:

First, providing virtual CISO's to emerging growth and small businesses that need a seasoned professional on a fractional, contract  or outsourced basis.  Expertise includes Storage, Networking, Security, Cloud, VOIP and Business Intelligence.
