“I have worked with contract agencies for 7 years, working with InfoSec for 2 years. They are by far the best agency I have ever worked with. They worked really hard to get to know me, my experience and my requirements. Throughout my time with their client they consistently advocated for me, supporting me through any difficulties I had. I have been disappointed to leave certain clients before but never have I felt that way about moving on from an agency until InfoSec. They will be first call next time I am looking for a new contract.”
