Strategic Partners

justTACInternationallogo
TAC International is the mentoring, coaching and career matchmaking partner of TAC. Whereas TAC specializes in IT advisory services, TAC International aspires to be the trusted career advisor to senior IT executives worldwide in helping them succeed in their chosen profession.

TAC International operates in four regions (USA, Canada, UK and India) and employs local world-class practitioner coaches (or recently retired practitioners) who themselves have been global CIOs of Fortune 500 companies. These elite coaches provide insights and wisdom that can only come from a lifetime of work at the business end of the IT profession (i.e. not as consultants or analysts). The coaching ranges from “soft” topics like office politics and workload, all the way to “hard” issues of a specialized technical nature.

The Virtual Cyber Security Team™ addresses all cyber security needs from initial analysis to monitoring to response. CSI clients benefit from the knowledge of 350 expert practitioners, yet annual fees are less than the cost of one full time employee.
