U.S. military, intelligence agencies, DHS, and law enforcement agencies depend on companies like ISHPI to deliver mission-critical technology services such as full spectrum cyber operations, counter terrorism, and other information security and analysis services. Recognized on the Inc. 500 list for three consecutive years and on Washington Technology's Fast 50 list for the last two years, ISHPI operates from its international corporate headquarters in Charleston. The husband and wife team of Noah and Lisa Leask, both U.S. Navy veterans, founded the company in 2006 and have expanded offices to three other states. The U.S. Small Business Administration named Noah Leask as this year's SC Small Business Person of the Year and recognized him as one of three national award winners being selected the first runner-up National Small Business Person of the Year. The company continues to win large government contracts, such as the most recent three year $14.1 million contract with DHS’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency for their secure wireless communications.
