I have been practicing Information Security for over 20 years specializing in Security, Audit and Risk Management in Healthcare, Financial Services and Manufacturing. I am a frequent speaker at local and national conferences such as “RSA”, “SecureWorld”, “Indy Big Data”, and a regular IT Security and Audit SME contributor to ITProTV. I have published articles in the Indiana Bankers Journal, and served as Technical Editor of several recent Security and Audit books such as Wiley’s (ISC)“CISSP Official Study Guide”, Wiley’s (ISC)“SSCP Official Study Guide”, as well as Co-Author of Wiley’s “CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor Study Guide, 4thEdition”, and most recently Wiley’s (ISC)“CCSP Official Study Guide”. I hold a BA from Indiana University in Public Affairs and an MA in Counseling from the University of North Dakota. I have served in numerous leadership positions with local and national InfoSec organizations such as ISACA, ISCand the InfraGard Indiana Members Alliance and was awarded Fellow status by the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) in 2013 for my leadership activities. In 2016 I received the (ISC) ISLA Community Achievement Award, and in 2017, the Infragard Indiana Diversity Award.
