Finding the right partner is worth celebrating.

WIMZKL was initially founded in 2011 to solve complex technology challenges in novel, high-impact ways. The focus quickly shifted to meet a long-standing need to make information security friendlier and more usable for a diverse audience of disciplines and industries.

WIMZKL (pronounced “whimsical”) was chosen as the name because, generally speaking, we humans seem to acquire hard-won wisdom either through tragedy or silliness.

WIMZKL delivers critical wisdom through intentionally designed, people-focused, and we daresay whimsical frameworks, tactics, and strategies that help protect your productivity, reputation, and bottom line – ahead of tragedies that would otherwise put them at risk.

WIMZKL is based in the U.S. and is led by Chad Calease with global capabilities as broad as they are deep thanks to a trusted network of gifted experts across disciplines. Have a super-obscure challenge? We like those. Even when we don’t know the answer right off, we know precisely who does. Get in touch. We’re happy to demonstrate how we achieve your goals.

DISCRETION helps protect the privacy and security of our clients so we don’t reveal affiliations here. Still, it’s fair you’d like to know what’s shaped our experience and why you’ll do well to collaborate with us. Get in touch. We’re happy to answer questions (there are no silly ones) and share relevant adventures and lessons learned where appropriate.  If we’re a good fit and work together, you can trust we’ll treat you with the same level of discretion and respect.
