“Cyber is ubiquitous in our lives today. Fortunately, American technological skill and ingenuity has granted the United States and its allies distinct advantages in that crucial arena. This is particularly true as regards the furthering of our commercial and national security interests. The Cyber Security Forum Initiative (CSFI) is unique in its mission of maintaining and furthering those advantages by fostering Cyber awareness and collaboration among the U.S. government, military and commercial sectors, as well as with international partners. The breadth and scope of that effort is indicative of the nature of Cyber dangers emanating from both state and non-state actors. Indeed, CSFI is prescient not only in its work in defeating current Cyber threats but also in anticipating future challenges. In its provision of security solutions, guidance and education on Cyber issues, CSFI is working to prepare government and industry for the Cyber challenges to come.

By promoting collaboration and an exchange of ideas on Cyber between government and industry, CSFI is not only helping give our military services, intelligence and law enforcement agencies the skills and resources they need both to protect us and to project American power. Of equal import, CSFI is also aiding American commercial, industrial and research organizations in shielding from Cyber attack the intellectual property and proprietary information that under gird American interests and security.
I very much look forward to continuing to assist CSFI with its important mission in future.”

Career Thoughts

I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to manage and run one of the biggest and most active forums on the Internet dealing with cyber warfare and cyber security – CSFI (The Cyber Security Forum Initiative). With over 16 years of cyber security experience, I continue to actively raise Cyber Warfare/Cyber Security awareness worldwide. I have worked as a Chief Security Engineer for AT&T, where I designed and approved secure networks for MSS. I have also consulted for several governments, military and private institutions on best network security practices throughout my career.

CSFI and its divisions CSFI-CWD (Cyber Warfare Division), CSFI-LPD (Law and Policy Division) and CSFI-WD (Wireless Division) continue to grow and expand with more than 60,000 information security members.

One of my personal goals is to serve our security community to the best of my abilities, in the protection and defense of our American national security interests, the American people, and that of our international partners. I am always ready to serve and to give of my time and skills to help our society with the growing problems we experience in cyberspace. I thank God and my family for the opportunities I have had in life and the most precious of all opportunities, which is the chance to serve others. I love what I do, and I appreciate all the support I have received from friends, family and our CSFI members.
