Why Tech Talk?

Every now and then I’ll write up a blog article about a particular technology and compare certain products that I find to not only be difficult for some buyers to choose from but will also compare some of the top products in the market today to help them with their buying decision so they can find the BEST product that meets their needs and budget.

As you will read below Information Technology is my passion and I love learning new technologies and sharing what I’ve learned to everyone.

My Technical Background

I have been in Information Technology for almost 20 years with over 2 dozen technical certifications in security administration, design, and architecture.

Some of the certifications that I currently hold:

CISSP – Certified Information Systems Security Professional

CEH – Certified Ethical Hacker
CCSM – Check Point Certified Security Master

I have my Masters of Science in Management Information Systems with a strong emphasis on Information Technology and Security and have worked for several large corporations over the years. I currently work full-time as a Senior Security Engineer where I design, implement, monitor and troubleshoot detailed system security architecture for customers within various industries such as healthcare, government, manufacturing, technology, transportation, retail, financial, legal, hospitality, travel, and utilities.

I am also an adjunct professor at (2) two universities where I teach college level classes on IT Automation and Security.
