About Us

Celebrating 12 years of being the preferred cyber security advisory partner to clients across Canada and the USA.

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.


We believe in a partnership approach with our clients. Iron Spear is committed to the long-term relationship with our clients to support their ongoing cyber needs and does not nickel and dime on every project.


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.


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. Rather, we want to see our clients achieve closure.


We are Canadian owned and operated with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina and Winnipeg, offering services across North America.


Our team have backgrounds in the Big 4 Accounting Firms, oil and gas, industrial control systems, insurance, tech, and banking. We bring the trusted methods, approaches, and standards of quality that are expected by our clients.


Iron Spear will not attempt to upsell when we are engaged, and Iron Spear is not contracted to security technology vendors. 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 the requirements.
