I am a high performing cybersecurity professional and veteran project manager. I am able to manage and understand the detail of network infrastructure and security issues.
Well versed in the Risk Management Framework and detail knowledge of SP 800-53 rev4, SP 800-53a, SP 800-37 which comes from several years of leading over 7 C&A/A&A audits.
As a Project Manager and as an engineer I have managed, monitored, analyzed, and minimized the operational impact of dynamic threats to critical public and private sector IT infrastructures. Domain knowledge of network design, routing protocol, incident handling, remediation, packet analysis, security auditing, intrusion detection, and vulnerability assessment—coupled with team leadership, hands on, and financial management capabilities—enables me to deliver, redundant, efficient, secure, available infrastructures and systems that defend against attacks and infiltration. I have credentials in industry-leading security and management certifications (e.g. PMP, CISSP, CISA, ITIL, CSM, CCNA), expertise in legal and regulatory compliance (e.g., FISMA, NIST, DIACAP, SOX, NERC), and additional experience in current cyber technologies (e.g., Checkpoint, Cisco ASA/PIX Firewall, Blue Coat, ArcSight, SourceFire, and Splunk.)
I have lead cross-functional teams to define scope, plan, execute and deliver exceptional business value on time and within budget. The projects I managed ranged in size from large to small across a wide range of technology platforms. All my projects have been very visible and hands-on project management role where I was the spokesperson for the capabilities of the project across a variety of audiences, as well as coordinate and lead project activities. I was always the single point of contact for all project activities and responsible for each project success.
