As the leader of the Grant Thornton Cybersecurity practice, I leverage over 25 years of experience to help clients develop robust Cybersecurity program strategies. This includes advising organizations in areas ranging from industrial and control system (ICS) security, network security architecture, threat hunting and red-teaming to cloud security, incident response, computer forensics and beyond.
Over the years, I have held senior positions with numerous organizations, including major consulting businesses, a global Cybersecurity consulting firm, a national telecommunications and media company, a Fortune 500 cloud-computing company, a recognized Cybersecurity software company and a major US defense contractor. This has given me the opportunity to work across industries, including in the energy, utilities, mining and industrial sectors.
I also hold several industry designations, including as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT) and a GIAC Certified Forensics Analyst (GCFA).
As a public speaker, I have presented at numerous events held by the FBI, US Department of Homeland Security, Conference Board of Canada, FIRST, BSides, SecTor, SANS, Blackhat, Public Safety Canada, IIA and ISACA. I’m also a frequent guest lecturers at colleges and universities across North America, and have been featured in such publications as SC Magazine, USA Today, National Post and Penetration Testing Magazine.
Originally from Montreal, I currently live in Halifax, where I serve on the board of directors for the ISACA Atlantic Provinces Chapter. I was also honoured to recently receive the 2020 ISACA Global Outstanding Leader Award.
