Coming from the military where threat and risk analysis were the bedrock of our operational strategies, I was drawn to Control Risks' approach of helping clients discover opportunities in global volatility. I love putting the pieces of the proverbial puzzle together to generate a comprehensive perspective of the world around us. Blending these fragments from diverse firm practices for our clients adds a unique element to my daily professional journey.
In cyber security, I cover a range of services from due diligence to programmatic assessments, each with distinct industry, problem set, and client priorities. Our approach begins with a comprehensive threat assessment to identify potential assailants targeting our clients and their crucial assets. These principles guide our recommendations, helping clients enhance operational resilience in an ever-changing global landscape.
A standout instance involves a program of exercises conducted for a global pharmaceutical company. Initially engaging Control Risks to develop a ransomware response playbook for their executive crisis management team, we subsequently devised quarterly tabletop and semi-live exercises. These exercises aimed to educate and train the client’s team on their roles in responding to and recovering from cyber crises. Over time, the exercises evolved from slide-driven scenarios to self-conducted simulations on the client’s communication platform. Witnessing their growth in capability and maturity was exceptionally fulfilling.
Outside of work, I am a wine enthusiast and enjoy exploring vineyards in the Washington DC area. I’m also a devoted reader of futuristic science fiction and historical non-fiction.
