As TeleNet’s customer base has grown since its founding, the company knew it was time to build and mature a cybersecurity program to keep its data—and its client data—safe.
The company had sufficient data protection practices, but lacked the roadmap needed for a mature cybersecurity program. Client expectations of robust cybersecurity measures were becoming increasingly common and some of their largest clients were either headquartered in or operating through the European Union (EU), where the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) had gone into effect. TeleNet leadership knew it needed to expand its protection and security protocols, to continue growing the company as client requirements evolved over time. A robust cybersecurity program would also create a competitive advantage for TeleNet.
The company found itself bogged down in tedious manual processes, responding to customer cybersecurity surveys and questionnaires. They knew they needed to take steps to not only meet increasing client demands, but get ahead of evolving industry requirements.
TeleNet's co-founders started the company in 1999 because they recognized a real need for a quality-focused B2B marketing and teleprospecting firm to help build and nurture sales pipelines for companies with a complex sales cycle.
Since then, they've recruited a team of industry veterans and constructed a state-of-the-art contact center in Athens, Georgia.
TeleNet is an expert in developing effective teleprospecting lead generation and lead nurturing strategies. The company was created around a single focus: providing businesses with valuable information they can trust. Keeping this promise is how it has helped countless companies build their sales pipeline and increase revenue from their B2B marketing investment.
