About Us

Iron Spear was founded by Jason Grimbeek in 2012 with the goal of  providing practical cyber security services with a focus on business risk and not based on textbook recommendations. Based on Jason’s founding idea we have built a dynamic team of cyber security experts who are moving and shaking the cyber security world.

Who is Iron Spear?

Founded

Iron Spear was founded in 2012 as a niche cyber security advisory firm committed to providing solutions to meet the needs of our clients whether they are looking for security compliance, control testing, or program development and operation. With a focus on both traditional IT as well as OT and the industrial environments, we are uniquely positioned in the market to offer complete cyber security services.

Practical

One of our beliefs is if we would not be able to implement it, we will not recommend it. We do not believe in textbook recommendations and want to see our clients achieve success in cyber security.

Experience

Our team have backgrounds in the Big 4 Accounting Firms, oil and gas, industrial control systems, insurance, tech, and banking. We have cyber, computer, electrical and mechanical engineers on our team and don’t sell senior resources and deliver with juniors. The average experience across all our Team is over 10 years, higher than most other consulting firms.

Location

We have offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina and Winnipeg, offering services across North America.

Partnership

We believe in partnership with our clients. We go the extra mile where needed and never nickel and dime.

Independant

Iron Spear does not actively sell technology. Rather, we believe in working with our clients to determine the requirements that meet their needs and then identifying best-of-breed products that match.

What’s in a Name?

IRON: Natural element that is strong, used in making steel, and exists in very small amounts in blood.
