Recent Security efforts included improving and maintaining the Internet-facing security, creating policies for reducing risk, and implementing security products to protect against ransomware attacks. I also work on security audit processes and responses. Past security efforts include leading security architecture development for a global company with more than 2,000 applications. I've managed teams of up to 60.

Although I can go deep into any aspect of IS or business, I excel at understanding human aspects, regarding organizational and technical change especially, with a leadership approach that respects the unique contributions of each team member. I'm always spotting talent and supporting those with the talent and drive to be more, whether as a consultant or employee. Please see the Recommendations section.
