Vincent’s Professional Journey
After graduating in Information and Computer Science, Vincent started his career at the reputed IBM organization as a field engineer before working his way up to a technical specialist in midrange systems. From there, he moved into project management, service delivery management, and sales. After a good nine years of working at IBM, and having worked closely with several .com companies LaRocca moved to EMC/Dell as a practice manager and later transitioned into a professional services sale’s role.
“I always had a strong network of friends and business owners who would reach out for IT advice. I really enjoyed it and at one point took some vacation time just to help. It was at that point that I started to contemplate the idea of starting my own business with a friend, quickly realizing that between the two of us, we had six or seven clients, so we started an MSP called Innovative Network Solutions,” Vincent shares.
About six years ago Vincent realized that MSPs could not serve as both, the Technical and Cyber Security Governing body for an organization. This is when he decided to launch an MSSP that would only focus on Cyber Security and Cyber Security compliance. Confident in his sales and business acumen Vincent set out to build the organizational structure for his company but needed help with the nuts and bolts of Cyber Security.
Fortunately, his unique set of service offerings were in great demand leading him to form an alliance with his current partner Jeffery Walker, who was a Security Manager at Morgan Stanley at the time. Initially naming the organization, Cyber Security Operations Consulting, Vincent credits his partner Jeffrey with suggesting to call the organization CyberSecOp, a name that is now revered in the cyber-security industry.
As CEO, Vincent focuses on business growth and operations. Since the company’s founding in 2017, they have grown to nearly 50 employees in 10 global offices. “We are always open to qualified security professionals looking to join our team. We have a broad range of security experts, including network engineers, security analysts and consultants, ethical hackers, and others who together hold over 20 of the highest-level technical certifications,” shares Vincent.
