SideChannel Inc. celebrates opening its company headquarters today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception to follow at 146 Main Street in downtown Worcester, Massachusetts. The ceremony will be attended by Senator Michael Moore, Mayor Joseph Petty, Chamber of Commerce President Timothy Murray, and CEO Brian Haugli.
The office opening is the latest occasion in a string of events transforming Massachusetts’ second-largest city into a leader in the knowledge economy. Worcester has recently been ranked #2 in New England by Wallet Hub in Best Places to Start a Business, #2 on Thumbtack’s Friendliest US Cities for Small Businesses, and #14 on Best Cities for STEM Jobs.
“I am thrilled to call Worcester home,“ said CEO Brian Haugli. “Cybersecurity is a high-growth industry, with a huge need for talent. It’s gratifying to lead a company finding tech talent outside of the usual places people think to look.”
SideChannel helps mid-market companies establish a strong information security program to protect their assets, and in some cases enables them to continue operating. SideChannel deploys the field’s most skilled and experienced talent to harden organizations’ defenses against cybercrime, in its many forms. The collective of 18 C-suite level information security officers possesses a combined 439 years of experience between them. To date, SideChannel has created more than 50 multi-layered cybersecurity programs for its clients.
The company recently celebrated its third year in business. A few companies on their expanding client list include CRISPR Therapeutics, Virgin Voyages, Panduit, and the City of New Bedford.
