He founded JM Addington Technology Solutions in 2010 to help secure Knoxville businesses. At the time — and currently — cybersecurity is a difficult field for small to mid-sized businesses and it can be un-affordable for many organizations. JM Addington changes that so businesses can get both the support and the security that they deserve.

An expert on the SEC cybersecurity rules, Jonathan developed custom reports and products inside CyberSecureRIA to keep RIAs inside the SEC guidelines — and let them sleep at night.
