I specialize in the area of computer forensics – using “fingerprints” of previous cyber attacks to pre-identify “means & methods” so as to help students recognize the blueprint for future attacks. My unique approach blends traditional with non-traditional applications to help prepare each student to thwart the newest breed of “out-of-the-box” thinkers by giving each student a vision… rather than a formula.
I am also highly instrumental in helping organizations achieve effective oversight by incorporating systems audit skills by ensuring systems meet compliance levels as dictated by management or regulatory requirements, as well as facilitating cost savings using IT solutions. For the individual, these learned skills and techniques become the basis of a computer forensics career in either the private or public sector. To date, I have provided professional IT training services on three continents including North America, Europe, and Africa for candidates from organizations such as Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA); Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy; AT&T; VISA; Career Changers; as well as a diverse commercial client-base to include several Fortune 500 firms.
