Brian has observed that the Boards, governing bodies and management at Starport’s clients have become increasingly aware that they are not immune to cyber crime. He believes that if a company acknowledges the threat head on, and takes the appropriate steps to make themselves an unattractive target; it is possible to dissuade cyber criminals from striking. One of Brian’s passions is working with a client to implement sufficient information security tools and practices so as to manage risk and mitigate the effects of cyber criminals.Brian holds the CISSP, CISA and CISM certifications, he also holds a Programmer/Analyst diploma and an MBA degree in Information Technology.
