Joshua Grove Named TalaTek CTO
TalaTek announced today that Joshua Grove has been named Chief Technology Officer. In his new role, he will provide technical and strategic leadership to accelerate growth at the integrated risk management firm.
“Grove was the natural choice, having capably served TalaTek as information assurance consultant, project manager and developer on the Enterprise Compliance Management Solution (ECMS), the company’s flagship compliance solution,” said Baan Alsinawi, president and founder of TalaTek.
Most recently, Grove has been overseeing and directing the development and implementation of TiGRIS, TalaTek’s soon-to-be-launched advanced Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) solution that was inspired by years of working with clients.
“TiGRIS was developed and guided by people who actually perform security assessments,” Grove said. “We developed TiGRIS to be more comprehensive and easier to use; setting it apart from other GRC tools and strengthening TalaTek’s capabilities.”
Prior to joining TalaTek, Grove honed his technical and leadership expertise performing security evaluations for the Defense Information System Agency field security office. As a U.S. Naval Warfare Officer, he led teams using the most technologically advanced equipment in the world. Grove holds a Master of Business Administration in Information Technology from Capella University and a Master’s in Distributed Intelligent Systems from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.
Along with these credentials, Grove brings a keen understanding of technology and the market, a customer-centric approach, and a desire to excel – all critical to TalaTek’s next phase of growth. In addition to shepherding the TiGRIS launch, he’s eager to formalize the TalaTek internship program.
“I’d like to see TalaTek grow into a mid-size business and become a recognized name in risk management,” Grove said. “Our legacy solution and our hardworking team has paved much of the way. Fully launching TiGRIS will take us from ‘grit to great.’ As a strategic leader at TalaTek, I’m committed to securing our future success.”
