The name CyberTAN is a derivative from three concepts which we believe addresses data security in an organised, well-structured manner. The prefix ‘Cyber’ relates to or is characteristic of the culture of computers, information technology, digital communications, automation of controls and virtual reality. The suffix ‘TAN’ is derived from two ideas: first, TAN is an acronym for Technology, Applications and Networks, and second, it's the suffix of Spartan - the elite Greek warriors who thought nothing of danger, expected to win, and created a sense of dread in their opponents. Our name therefore is an indication that the approach to security needs to be organised, structured, smart and steadfast. This forms the core of our commitment to you.


We intend to be an outrageously successful Information Security Specialist with clients at the forefront of everything we do so that they may derive true value from security.
