About Me

Founder and CISO of TrustNet, Trevor previously served as President of InfraGard Atlanta in partnership with the FBI. A sought-after presenter at international security conferences including RSA Conference, SPIN, TAG, and ISACA, Trevor holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Wits University, South Africa with a triple major in Information Systems, Accounting, and Business Law. His qualifications include CISSP, PCI QSA, PCI PCIP, HITRUST CCSFP, CISA, ISO 27001 Lead Auditor.

Growing up in the late 1970s in the sleepy suburbs of Johannesburg, South Africa, Trevor developed an early interest in technology. At that time, South Africa was under the grip of the oppressive apartheid regime that banned sharing any information deemed "subversive”, and controlled all communication with the outside world. Despite limited access to technological infrastructure and formal IT education, Trevor’s passion never wavered. With ingenuity and resourcefulness, Trevor overcame a neurobiological learning disability and “hacked” his way through school, teaching himself the fundamentals of computing and cybersecurity.

Driven by an insatiable curiosity and a desire to make a difference, Trevor embarked on a journey that took him from makeshift learning spaces to sharing his knowledge on the global cybersecurity stage. Along the way, he overcame numerous challenges, including a lack of role models, financial constraints, societal expectations, and geographic limitations that often discourage pursuits outside traditional career paths in third-world countries.

Now a respected cybersecurity professional, Trevor can discuss any topics related to cybersecurity, compliance, managed security, and even the ongoing automation of compliance platforms through machine learning and how its ongoing evolution will affect other industries.
