Company Profile

Cyber behaviors. It is our focal point. Unlocking your employees cyber agility.


During Adam and Brad’s many trips to the Clemson University Golf course, the subject of their friends and business buddies who were getting hacked through their business email accounts was a regular topic. It was crazy how over time so many of our family members, good friends, and business associates had been a victim to a hack. All were tricked and fooled, companies were affected, time, and money were lost. We set out to find a solution that keeps today’s workforce off the hook! We view our system as a better tool to address behavior, akin to what Buckminster Fuller said, “If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, given them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.”

Hook Security was born to be a true cyber behavioral partner to each client. We understand how to provide valuable training and data that empowers employees and companies to stand up against cyber threats by improving behaviors. Our white glove service was built to take all the leg work out of understanding your workforce’s tendancies. Leave the obsession to Hook Security and watch your company strengthen.

Companies and their workforce are under attack. Cyber criminals are coming at businesses of every size. Companies with and estimated over 50k in compromised records, the average cost of a data breach is $6.3 million. It is estimated that 71% of cyber breaches begin with a spear phishing emails. An estimated 95% of cybersecurity breaches are due to human error. This means businesses are using expensive cyber technologies that are breached as soon as someone in the company clicks on something they should not have in an email.



You get speed of recovery and reduction of liability by having the right policies in place.
