How I Can Help You

If you’re like me in 2019 not knowing what the GRC acronym stands for, or that people with diverse backgrounds can break into this awesome career field, I can share my story to help you find your path. I’ve now been both an applicant and a hiring manager.

Studying for a certification like the CISSP or CISA? Enrolled in the Simply Cyber GRC Masterclass? I’ve got study notes and tips from my journey obtaining those. How about certifications like A/CCRF or A/CCRP? I’m an exam developer on the Akylade Advisory Council.

Working on a business case for a Security investment that needs approval by the bean counters? I’ve been on both sides and can help bridge between their technical world and yours.

If you or your colleagues have experienced sub-optimal GRC in the past, it doesn’t need to be that way. Let’s elevate perceptions and realities by improving GRC skills, methods and mindset.
