At MegaplanIT, we are one team working together with the same goals and missions – providing professional consulting services and building ongoing trusted client relationships, while maintaining honesty and integrity during the process.

Let’s Hear From Caleb Coggins: 
In my role as the Director of Compliance Services, I support internal process development, facilitate team growth, and actively lead customer engagements. The culture at MegaplanIT supports both individual and professional growth, as part of a functional team. Throughout the year, we participate in internal and industry-sponsored education and training. As a team, we actively collaborate and routinely share our collective knowledge and experience in an industry that continues to evolve.
MegaplanIT’s mission focuses on building long-term partnerships with clients and improving the security and compliance assessment process. Each person on the Compliance Services team brings a unique skill set and ability to engage with clients in a positive way. They take the time to understand a client’s business, identify security and compliance pain points, and reduce friction by streamlining the assessment process.
One of the ways that the MegaplanIT team provides value to its clients is through Trusted Advisory Services. Members of the Compliance team and other areas of the company frequently meet with clients to provide guidance on newer technologies and current challenges, so that decision-makers are equipped with the necessary information to move their organizations forward.
