I will put information technology to work for you.
Everyone can use a guardian angel to help steer them in the right direction. Whether you're a small or home office, a bustling startup growing fast, or a large corporation, I can develop your company's new IT strategy, or help repair a failing one. If you have continually late projects, overrun budgets, or you can't keep employees from leaving your company we should talk. If something is not working in your organization - whether it's equipment, business processes, administration, or people - we will find it and fix it. Together.
For larger customers - time is money, and for every second your applications are unavailable to your revenue sources that's money down the drain. I have extensive experience working in, building, and designing enterprise infrastructures as well as application architectures. It's almost 2020 and if your application still can't handle servers going down for maintenance, you need to call me.
I am able to provide technical solutions on current industry standard technologies, including cloud and hybrid cloud computing. Unusual or non-standard technologies or devices are not a problem as I have been learning new technology quickly while under pressure for what seems like forever. I pay attention to emerging and open source technology to find new and exciting ways to do things -- especially if they can be automated.
I have held my CISSP credential for 12 years and stay current on threats, vulnerabilities, emerging technologies and countermeasures. I am available for most information security needs. I even have PCI audit experience. If you've received my business card with constructive criticism on it directing you here, this is for you.
One thing I can't stand is waste - whether it's my time or yours. Let me help you get more bang for your buck by making sure your business processes aren't doing unnecessary work. Are your engineers still building systems by hand? Are your administrators spending too much time babysitting users? There may be an opportunity to free up your technical staff to do more important work and make them happier in the process.
I am passionate about information security and the need to protect both corporate as well as personal assets and devices in the digital age. I am available for speaking engagements covering a wide range of information security topics including:
Network security, Physical security, Social engineering, Password complexity and safety, Payment card fraud, Identity fraud, Preventing fraud in the workplace, Personal digital privacy, and Preventing online identity theft.
Let's discuss what you need and how I can help you best achieve it.
