Ethical Hacker Launches Cybersecurity & Compliance Company in Tampa Bay

Ethical Hacker Launches Cybersecurity & Compliance Company in Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay, FL — CoAction Security is proud to announce the launch of their company, headquartered in Tampa Bay, Florida. The company is focused on providing cutting-edge cybersecurity and compliance solutions alongside superior customer service to ensure clients’ vulnerabilities are identified and mitigated swiftly and efficiently. 

The firm will cater to small and midsize businesses with a focus on industries that tend to be heavily regulated, such as healthcare, financial services, and legal, as well as companies required to be Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliant. CoAction Security delivers specialized protection against potential threats for each industry that could affect privacy, finances, and public reputation, providing high-touch customer service not often seen in the rapidly growing security industry.

The company is led by Founder & CEO  Jacob “Jake” Wattam, an industry expert whose career has spanned from management consulting in cybersecurity and compliance to risk management at a national managed service provider (MSP) and beyond. A trained penetration tester, he has led both highly-technical and advisory teams. 

“As cyber threats become more sophisticated and regulatory landscapes more complex, partnering with a specialized cybersecurity compliance company becomes not just beneficial, but essential,” said Wattam. 

Not all security companies are created equal, and staying at the forefront of the threat landscape is critical to a successful partnership. Wattam holds several industry certifications including multiple Microsoft certifications, the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and the OffSec Certified Professional (OSCP), considered to be more technical than other ethical hacking certifications and one of the few requiring evidence of practical penetration testing skills. His technical expertise alongside his history of strong leadership will drive a company focused on maintaining excellence and a cutting-edge approach to each client engagement.

CoAction Security works directly with businesses and also partners with MSPs and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), offering an additional layer of security for their clients. Compliance expertise across HIPAA, PCI, NIST 800-171, and more helps MSPs and MSSPs ensure they’re maintaining secure networks for their clients.

CoAction Security is committed to working collaboratively as a trusted advisor to all clients to ensure the privacy and security of organizations’ sensitive information.  


CoAction Security provides cutting-edge cybersecurity and compliance solutions, ensuring vulnerabilities are identified and swiftly and efficiently mitigated. With a focus on small and midsize businesses, healthcare, finance, and other regulated sectors, the firm delivers unwavering protection against potential threats that could affect an organization’s’ privacy, finances, and reputation.
