Founder and CEO
Tab Pierce founded Caliber Security Partners in 2010, with the belief that security needed to change from just a technical deliverable to an inclusive package with executive understanding and management of risk. Tab has gathered over 20 years of information security knowledge and is highly connected to industry experts throughout the United States. If you need to find someone in security, chances are Tab knows them or can quickly get an introduction. Tab has held executive positions within information security services providers, as well as companies within the broader IT sphere, and was a founder of The Zyon Group and co-founder of Mindpoint.net. Work and security are his primary passions; and if he’s taken a brief moment out of the office, he is likely on one of Washington’s breathtaking lakes, rivers, or in Puget Sound, because he’s an avid fisherman.
