In the fall of 2015, GuidePoint Security LLC became an approved General Services Administration (GSA) vendor for the Schedule 70 Information Technology contract. The new designation allows the company to participate in contractor team arrangements with other GSA Schedule contract holders.
Words of Wisdom: “Surround yourself and build your team with the most talented, skilled and knowledgeable people, who are just as passionate about the work as you are.”
Through its work with the federal government, GuidePoint has helped ensure that the data, infrastructure and information within federal entities have additional layers of security. “There is nothing more important to the citizens of the U.S. than their safety and the country’s national security,” says Michael Volk, founder and managing partner of GuidePoint. That’s why the company has spent years working closely with members of the federal government’s intelligence and defense community to make sure sensitive information isn’t compromised by inside or outside threats.
GuidePoint executives have been involved in a number of mentoring activities. The company’s internship program, which was initiated by the organization’s partners and C-level personnel, allows students in the Greater Washington area to learn and work alongside cybersecurity specialists.
