ERMProtect – FusionWorks Partnership
(San Juan, Puerto Rico – June 8, 2018) Fusionworks, Inc., a business and technology consulting firm headquartered in Puerto Rico, with offices in Santo Domingo and Miami, entered into a collaboration agreement with ERMProtect, a global cybersecurity consulting firm, to provide the local market with a world-class player that can help organizations with their data security, cybercrime protection and compliance requirement efforts.
“Despite the exponential increase in cybercrimes, data loss, reputational damages etc., we have not seen a sufficient level of urgency from local companies to overcome these threats,’’ said Jorge Mejía, a CPA and Director at Fusionworks. “Companies are not paying enough attention to training and educating employees how to avoid falling victim to hacker’s tricks, even though employee behavior most often opens the door to damaging attacks,’’ he said.
“We have evaluated ERMProtect’s track record, personnel, customer list and more than 20 years of experience and concluded that the company’s services are needed in Puerto Rico. Also, their ERMProtectTM training product is an innovative, state-of-the art production that makes it a perfect solution for us to deliver with our learning management system,” said Leslie Luciano who is also a co-founder and Director at Fusionworks.
The agreement is a two-way contract, where ERMProtect will promote Fusionworks services among its more than 300 customers around the globe. The agreement was signed in the city of Coral Gables by Mr. Mejía and Silka González, founder and president of ERMProtect, both CPA’s, born and bred in Puerto Rico.
Ms. González said she decided to partner with Fusionworks after reviewing the quality of their work in Puerto Rico. With more than two decades in the Florida market building relationships, ERMProtect is positioned to help facilitate Fusionworks’ entry into the region, she said.
Fusionworks transforms the business landscape of the markets they operate in by helping organizations become more innovative, efficient and competitive. They do this by combining business knowledge and technology expertise to modernize a company’s finance, human capital, marketing and sales operations. Besides ERMProtect, other Fusionworks partners include Oracle, Microsoft and Prophix.
