WHO ARE WE?
We started out in 2003 simply offering two employee benefits that protected employees’ identity and legal rights. We had a product that we truly believed in and all we did was try to get that out to as many people as possible. However, along the way we discovered that we were really good at training people on how to protect themselves from identity theft and data breaches.
We started focusing more on being the solution for staff development. Today, we still offer those same great employee benefits that we started with, but now we’re so much more than that. We’re the missing piece in keeping your employees and students safe.

ORGANIZATIONS WHO LOVED US
We enjoyed this very interesting and engaging presentation, and the information was well received by our employees. He also spoke about Smartphone Awareness and Identity Theft Awareness. We are a telecommunications company, and yet we learned things that even we didn’t know and had not considered. Also, the video at the end gave his presentation a very moving and personal touch.

Mark is personal and professional in his delivery and included well-received bits of humor as he connected with our audience. Our people left the session upbeat and encouraged. I have had many positive comments about how much they in loved the program and how they found it helpful. I highly recommend Mark and TBG Solutions to your organization if you are seeking to increase the peace of mind and safety of your employees, church, or synagogue.
Mark is a husband and father of five. As the founder of TBG Solutions Inc., he develops strategies, training and awareness programs to help employees, staff, and students safely navigate the Internet and the ever-changing world of social media. Mark’s identity was stolen as a child, and from that experience Mark recognized the rising rate of identity theft resulting from a lack of data security within companies and organizations and the devastating consequences individuals and organizations face. These factors influenced Mark to build what is now a cutting-edge security and risk management training company.
