Presenters – Marsha Goldford, Eileen Malischewski & John Holbrook

Since 1997, John has been immersed in the world of IT, initially cutting his teeth at a local Credit Union. Over the years, he’s navigated through various roles, transitioning from support and operations to network architecture. However, for the past decade and a half, his focus has been squarely on cybersecurity, earning him the moniker of the “Security Guy.”

In the last couple of years, John has ventured into the realm of cybersecurity consulting, collaborating with a diverse clientele comprising small to medium-sized enterprises and municipal bodies. His engagements have been multifaceted, encompassing critical tasks such as conducting cybersecurity maturity assessments, crafting comprehensive security strategies for both short and long-term horizons, orchestrating incident response frameworks, facilitating tabletop exercises, drafting meticulous policies, and providing sustained mentorship and advisory services.
