TJ Bettles is the founder and CEO of WhiteHat Cybersecurity Solutions Ltd, a Vancouver BC based start-up on a mission to disrupt cybersecurity.
As the public face of WhiteHat, he is responsible for setting the vision for the company, developing and executing its growth strategy, and leading teams of Ethical Hackers through different client engagements.
TJ's self directed education as a hacker began over 30 years ago. Through decades of studying, trial & error, problem solving and experimentation, he mastered his craft.
He has spent 18 years in the business world with leadership roles in Human Resources, Software Sales and as a business owner.
With his business experience and skills as a hacker, he identified a need in the marketplace among small and medium sized businesses. They were not adequately protected from cyber attacks. There was an opportunity to add value to the Canadian business community.
From that idea, WhiteHat CyberSecurity Solutions was born. A different way of looking at cybersecurity. Approached through the eyes of the hacker, with focus on the fundamentals of good security policies, good configuration hygiene and up to date software patching. An emphasis on practical, tangible actions. Not expensive software solutions.
In January 2022, WhiteHat launched with the website going live in May of 2022.
One client turned into two, two into four, four into eight... and it has grown from there.
Outside of WhiteHat, TJ is married to his lovely wife Anna and together they have a Tuxedo Maine Coon/Domestic Cross named Marshy. When not working, he enjoys strength training, coaching and hanging out with his wife and cat.
