About TalaTek

Staff Biographies»

TalaTek has been a highly valuable advisor to our team. Led by Baan Alsinawi, TalaTek team members are professional, knowledgeable, and analytical. They have brought experience and perspective to support both the business and technical aspects of the creation of our information assurances processes and standards. TalaTek has been able to work around our changing requirements within our department and the organization overall. The team has been flexible and informative in each step of the delivery of its services while maintaining alignment with our budget. I would highly recommend working with TalaTek for information assurance and risk management projects.
