I'm Nic. I'm an IT Security Consultant with 10 years of experience.
I'm an IT Security Consultant. I can help your company write a Business Continuity plan, and then we can work on a Disaster Recovery Plan. Need policies? I can write polices. Feel like you're lacking adequate controls and prevention methods? Let me assist in finding what fits your environment best.
A generalization of my skill set.
A look back on the things I've done.

As a consultant, I provide guidance and advice for IT departments, as well as craft polices, Business Continuity Plans, Disaster Recovery Plans, and IT Security Awareness training programs. In addition, I offer digital and physical penetration testing services. I have an excellent eye for improving the efficiency of tasks and reducing waste, both in man-hours and consumables. With my help, your company can go from no security to compliant with applicable regulations in no time.

Using the latest tools and technologies, I'll attempt to breach your network in various ways. Upon successful breach, the method and severity of the threat will be documented. For clients in the United States, I can also offer Physical Penetration Tests. This more or less equates to attempting to break into your business and access systems by physical means.
Through various means, I will assess vulnerabilities in your network and provide a remediation plan. This differs from a Penetration Test in that I do not attempt to exploit any discovered vulnerabilities. An assessment equates to a scan of your network to spotlight potential ingress points.
Working as a secondary step to assessment based off of my assessment or an assessment you've already had completed, Remediation includes patching guidelines, configuration suggestions, code suggestions, and other tasks involved in remediation or mitigation of threats to your network.
Using industry standards as guidelines, I can design Security policies for your network based on your specifications and results of vulnerability assessments.
Capitalizing on experience with many vendors and many of their products, I can assist you in developing the best Security solution for your network.
Working side by side with your IT staff, I can offer my expertise to advance your IT department."
