This month, I joined Forrester’s security and risk research team as a senior analyst covering cyber threat intelligence, digital risk protection, vulnerability management, and industrial control system (ICS) security. I am excited about joining the team and expanding Forrester’s existing research in threat and vulnerability management and securing the control systems that keep our manufacturing facilities, critical infrastructure, and communities safe and productive.

In my opinion, intelligence is the hub in a robust, mature security and risk program. Without intelligence, the various “spokes” lack a voice, representing the threat.

Prior to Forrester, I helped reduce cyber risk for one of the largest critical infrastructure asset owners in the US. I am also a former Secureworks consultant. Outside of Forrester, I continue to serve in the United States Army Reserve as an innovation liaison officer with the US Army Reserve Innovation Command, scouting for new technologies to meet challenging modernization requirements to deter aggression around the world. For more details, you can check out my bio.

I’m passionate about supporting other military veteransI am also an avid fan of Atlanta sports, including Atlanta United, the Falcons, and the Hawks but mostly my alma mater, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets!
