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:
Mark was our first presenter for the day with Active Shooter Training, and he and his presentation were by far our employees' favorite. Mark was engaging, knowledgeable, and presented the information in a clear, concise manner. In an internal survey, some of our employees mentioned that the information Mark shared was valuable information not only for work but for their everyday lives. Our overall experience with Mark went above and beyond our expectations. My company and I would absolutely recommend his services to other organizations seeking similar training.
Your direct approach to the dangers of social media and apps was spot on, and exactly what our students needed to be made aware of. They were also educated and informed on how to appropriately use or eliminate dangerous apps. Your attention to detail throughout the presentation was evident, as you provided real life experiences and stories for students to relate to or grasp a better understanding of the importance of being safe
Central Baptist Church
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.
