BRIDGEWATER, N.J. – April 15, 2020Tom Meehan, CFI, chief strategy officer and chief information security officer at CONTROLTEK, a leader in loss prevention and security solutions, was a recent guest on the podcast CTO Confessions, hosted by TC Gills of IT Labs. 

“In these modern times, the digital world has many doors and windows, and through our inventiveness, we create new domains of attack and subsequent security needs,” said Gills. “In this episode of CTO Confessions, Tom and I discussed his growth as an industry thought leader and the ongoing battle to get on the winning edge of security without thinking you’ve worked it out.”
