Why he likes working for Cadre:
Chris will tell you there are three reasons. One the people at Cadre are all focused on our customers and their success. From management to engineering to sales and support, they are all driving to ensure the project is completed as promised. Second Cadre is the right size security partner in that they are big enough to ensure quality products and support but small enough to be able to make decisions in timely fashion keep projects moving forward. Lastly the relationships with individuals that have been built with many organizations have been wonderful. They create an atmosphere of conversation and learning with our peers.

Chris's Best Piece of Cyber Security Advice:
"The IT Security role in today’s enterprise is changing. Reacting to a specific security concern with a pillared solution does not provide the connectivity or insight needed to react and manage threats. IT Security is moving into the C suite and is top of mind. We need to look at security through the eyes of the business and integrate with its initiatives not just align. We need to understand and reduce risk for the business and remain relevant. We need to stop following the business and start leading it."
