- Ph.D. in business administration/information security technology, Trident University International
I was an information assurance manager and local area network manager for the Department of Defense, Rhode Island Army National Guard for 33 years and was responsible for the security of the non-classified and classified LANs/WANs by complying with information assurance vulnerability alerts with the certification and assessment teams (Army Community Emergency Response Team). I was also responsible for the defense information certification and accreditation process, certification and accreditation of multiple networks, both non-classified and classified. My awards include the National Guard Minuteman Award and numerous sustained superior performance awards. I serve on Ph.D. dissertation committees at Trident University, where I am also an adjunct faculty member. My mission is to educate students and citizens on how to protect their personal and professional identify in this highly technical world we live in.
