Tenable PAC

The Tenable PAC was created to help strengthen Tenable's ability to shape the public policy decisions that affect the way we run our business and our lives. We do this by supporting candidates and who share our interests and who understand and support policies beneficial to Tenable and the cybersecurity industry.
