I focus on a proactive approach for key areas, which can provide increased security and resiliency. Focusing on specific control areas provides scalability and integration for broader information security deployment within organizations.
My experience consulting with organizations, corporate and non-profit, navigate the new digital frontier advising on cyber security issues and building technology strategies that drive performance and business value. I have led and managed implementations for organizations in a wide variety of industries, Global 2000, Fortune 1000, small and medium organizations. The information security frameworks applications have received multi-year certifications. I have participated as an invited speaker at Chicago-area business organizations and universities providing thought leadership on the state of cyber security, technology risk, IT management leadership, and digital careers of the future. Currently I volunteer Developing National Occupational Frameworks for Registered Apprenticeship Programs in Cybersecurity with the Urban Institute in Washington D.C. and Harper College Workforce and Economic Development.
