I've been reading about the healthcare industry being held hostage by Ransomware caused by phishing attacks. There isn't anyone else I would trust to come in, educate my staff on what to look out for and check all our technology and business tools for leaks that could let someone do this to us. I fee much more confident now that we had Cardinal come in and take preventive measures to protect us.

We have been working with CDS for years now. They are our go-to team for all our IT needs. We haven't been disappointed yet.

- Roger D. (a P&C Insurance company)

We were concerned that we had been compromised and our data had been exposed through the Internet. We contacted Cardinal Data and their Cyber-Security team performed a thorough assessment and tested the network. They even gave us a check list of things to fix and helped us manage the remediation of our environment.

- Aaron T. (a Collection agency)

The large search firms were unable to find the "purple squirrel", someone with just the right skills and business knowledge. CDS presented us with three qualified candidates and it was absolutely worth the wait. They did more than just check skills. CDS made certain our new employee would be able to succeed in their new role. That is rare to find in a recruiter.
