"RiskSense is actively and innovatively addressing very real and growing threats to national, enterprise, and personal security by anticipating cyber-attacks, not just responding," added Annlee Ellingson, L.A. Biz, returning to judge her third Best in Biz Awards competition.

We brought to market a completely new approach to cyber risk management, achieved 100 percent year-over-year growth, and have been honored with 26 industry accolades. We expect this momentum to continue in 2017.”
