CYBERSECURITY - It seems like we're losing the battle...Right?

Is it possible to SECURE DATA? Especially for mid-market businesses who create and use mission-critical data but don't have the luxury of building DoD-style security...

Coming out of college with a passion for technology, I ran into this SECURITY QUESTION...

It became an obsession...HOW TO BUILD EFFECTIVE SECURITY SOLUTIONS for small businesses. I was just getting started, earning entry-level certifications, but continually drawn to SECURITY - to find real solutions to a growing problem.

Most medium-sized businesses have an IT department - but can't attract or afford a qualified CISO...nor staff full-time security EXPERTISE…In fact, there are so many unfilled security positions right now, even large enterprise corporations struggle to maintain their Red Team/Blue Team people.

For almost 20 years, I have focused on building solid cybersecurity defense for mid-sized businesses. - creating the PROTECTION, DETECTION, and RESPONSE systems needed to stop hackers as well as internal data theft and misuse - operational error, and all the things leading to data BREACH and LOSS.

You DON'T need the most expensive security solution on the market. Coming from two decades in IT, I'll be the first to tell you - securing data isn't a one-size-fits-all situation.

As CISO and Security Solutions Strategist, I now spend my time on threat mitigation and remediation (Through our 24 x 7 SOC - Security Operations Center and Continuous Pen Testing Technology) - crafting strategies I learned in the trenches…

I'm passionate about DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION, CLOUD COMPUTING, and the FUTURE of AUTOMATION and ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE - but with security in mind!

Our team is developing, continually improving, and maintaining strategies to effectively protect our clients, allowing them to move forward - competing in this DIGITAL WORLD we are creating. And I am super EXCITED to be part of it!
