Recent speaking engagement

I was set to speak at a recent tech entrepreneurial conference outside Charlotte, NC. Since I was previously employed as VP of CyberSec for the largest health system in the region, I was a featured speaker.

I spoke about the various perspectives of cybersecurity that a start-up needs to consider: their prospects, their application, their business, their investors, and finally regulations.

The speech was well received and I was later invited (and accepted) to join the group as a mentor.
