Hello,

My name is Dave,

In my day job, I run a cybersecurity company and we do analysis of organizations and report on how compliant they are on various regulations and standards related to privacy and data management. I also do a lot of research in collaboration with universities and have been part of the writing of over 150 research papers on cyber security, some of them are published publicly and available.

I spend most of my time actually developing educational materials or running educational workshops on cybersecurity so education is natural for me.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce from Algonquin College / Athabasca University. I also have completed many training programs related to information technology and have worked in the IT field for thirty years. I have also studied philosophy, math and music.

I am familiar with networks, computers, servers, gaming and general software configuration, troubleshooting and best practices.

I have a strong background with the MS-Office suite, in particular with implementing special solutions involving the VBA back end that every office app has.

I have created and run educational seminars regarding cybersecurity and have worked with students of varying skill and experience levels to reach specific educational milestones.

Currently I am working on a large project with a post secondary institution to deliver some of our research as course materials to a large number of students.

Finally, I (and you too if you got to this point) have a lot of patience and will adjust my approach based on the person and situation sot hat we can communicate effectively and move forward with the educational goals at hand.

Thanks,
Dave
