CyberSleuth has given me peace of mind with my cyber security. I have needed this service for several years but never found the right fit, until now.

Manny has been extremely responsive and makes great suggestions for us to implement not only on the cyber security side but also just on the IT side of things. We are a fully virtual CPA firm with offices in two different cities. I sleep better at night knowing he and CyberSleuth are protecting my and my client’s data.
The valuable experience working in a family-owned business taught me the ins and outs of running a small business. I decided to further my career by pursuing the CPA credential. I went back to school to get the additional education needed to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination. I passed the exam the first time within five months while continuing to work for a local CPA 30 hours a week and raising my family. My NC CPA license is #41090.
In October of 2020, I expanded my firm by hiring a full-time bookkeeper and administrator to help me grow and serve my clients. With her years of accounting, customer service, and administrative experience, our firm can better serve you.
When I'm not working, I spend my time with my husband, three children and dog. They are the reason I started my own firm and support me daily.
