Prospecting for new clients is where I spend most of my time. This includes introductions of Choice
CyberSecurity to people on LinkedIn, my networking groups, and email lists. I am sending introduction
emails, and if I have sent emails already, I send new emails with new, relevant, updated information about
our services, mostly related to NIST 800-171, CMMC, ISO 27001 compliance services. I also make phone calls
to learn where the government contracting company is in its NIST or CMMC journey.
My primary responsibilities include coordinating the sales team by managing their schedules, creating and
sending out proposals on their behalf, ensuring the sales team has the most up-to-date sales information and
documentation. I am the primary contact for the sales team to support them in their sales efforts.

26 YEARS OF BUSINESS EVOLUTION
Steve Rutkovitz founded Choice Technologies as a VAR in 1995. In 2007 Steve started pivoting the company’s direction into the MSP model, and in 2009 security and compliance services were introduced, propelling the company’s transformation into an MSSP in 2012.
Because there was no structured approach to compliance and security within the SMB market (which still holds today) and because our clients had, and have, justifiable concerns over increasing security threats, government compliance audits, and mandates from regulatory bodies (e.g., HIPAA and PCI), Steve realized it was time for the industry to stop “winging it.” In 2016 Choice CyberSecurity® (CCS) was born to step up to the industry’s challenges and provide structured security and compliance services that MSPs wanted and their clients needed and deserved.
Today, Choice CyberSecurity is now Choice Cyber Solutions and continues to evolve based on each new technology that’s introduced, each new threat to security that must be overcome, and each new regulatory compliance mandate that must be met by the clients we serve
