The people behind Ho’ike Technologies
Throughout my life I have had 2 driving passions – to be the best at everything I do; and IT. And for the past 20 years, I’ve been able to do them both.
When I entered the University of New Mexico I was intent on being the best architect ever. One day during my time at UNM I volunteered to help bring internet into my dorm, and I was hooked. While I was studying I pursued my interest in IT and after graduation became an Advanced Technical trainer for IBM , initially concentrating on IBM’s conversion from PROFS/Office Vision to Lotus Notes, within IBM and for clients, co-writing the training material for the project. Working with these companies opened my eyes to the escalating threat of cyber security.
I then became Chief Information Security Officer for MetroPlus Health Plans, building a robust security program to protect the corporation and its members. From there, I became a cyber-security consultant to Fortune 50 companies.
My experiences have taught me two things – that no company is immune from cyber-threat, and that with each passing day, the small and mid-sized organizations fall further behind in cyber-security and remediation.
Small and mid-sized companies are my focus. I take the lessons I learned with the Fortune 50 and bring them a state-of-the-art cyber-security program that is comprehensive and affordable. It gives me the opportunity to be a game changer.
