From Fortune 500 to Education, from startup to running a consulting firm, Brendan’s experience in information security has served him well. It all started with his boss speaking out loud about how they ‘needed to get someone to handle security’, and deciding he wanted to be that someone. Now a CISSP, CISM, and a couple of decades, and many industry changes, later he is still at it.
