With a reputation as a Change Catalyst who provides technology leadership and architects effective solutions, I am an MBA and IT/cybersecurity professional who strongly believes that *cybersecurity is a business issue, not just an IT issue.*
Throughout my career, I have balanced keen business acumen with spearheading initiatives to ensure that security and networking solutions are in place – and developed strategies that consistently meet corporate objectives AND exceed performance goals.
Despite there being no way to absolutely ensure 100% that data is not stolen or an organization is not breached, it IS imperative to understand which business assets that are most important and ensure that there is appropriate protection for those assets. An ever-evolving field, cybersecurity requires a commitment to constant improvements, learning, and innovation. I am passionate about continuing to learn and expand my in-depth knowledge on this important topic while teaching others about technology and cybersecurity.
In my current role, I am recognized as a cybersecurity expert and frequently consulted on numerous security initiatives. Augmenting my MBA, I also possess a Master’s degree in Information Security & Assurance.
