    Information Security marks one of the greatest challenges for the ever-developing demands of modern business. Whether an established enterprise with simultaneous, critical availability demands across composable infrastructure, or a start-up with the pricing requirements to scale from thousands of users to millions in seconds, great security is of complete obligation.

    As business Information Technology needs grow, so do cybersecurity threats. Your focus, management, and engineering must develop alongside these to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information systems—amidst legal requirements, preparing and responding to disaster, and constant technology deprecation.

    In my work, I strive to prepare your company against evolving security compliance standards, establishing business frameworks for continuous integration of both physical and cyber security in your solutions, and preparing for emergency response.
