I’ve been active in the Atlantic Canadian information security community for well over a decade, both as a current board member of AtlSecCon and the former lead organizer of Security BSides Cape Breton. I believe that being involved in the information security community has led me to where I am today.

I can still remember when Lares CEO and co-founder Chris Nickerson followed me on Twitter, and when Andrew Hay first gave me advice when I was pursuing the CISSP certification. Little did I know that those connections would eventually lead to my joining the Lares virtual CISO (vCISO) practice many years later.

Having worked for such companies as Trustwave, Tenable, MNP and Bell, I have years of experience in developing, managing and assessing information security programs for all levels of organizations, from small start-ups to large governmental departments. I’ve worked both sides of the fence, as an implementer and an assessor, so I know what it takes to navigate the long and winding (and sometimes rough) road to building a mature security program.

I’m honored to be part of the team and I’m looking forward to helping our clients with their security challenges.
