7/13/2012 – 11/11/2017 - Chief Executive Officer - CSR-Support LLC, Alpharetta, GA - SDVOSB
I created this company with the intent to establish a customer service, call center and technical help desk business to serve the Federal government, staffed by Disabled Veterans. The basic tenet here, is if you accommodate for a Veterans disability, he/she will stay with you longer, yield a lower employee turnover rate, and therefore more experienced customer services.
The company evolved into offering Identity and Privileged Access Management (IAM & PAM) as a managed service to stop data breaches at government agencies. After IBM vetted our solution, we were appointed a Federal Systems Integrator in Cyber Security, a Small Business Cloud Services Provider, and a Business Partner.
Key to the success of our developed solutions was the use of a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) composed of three biometric factors, continuous authentication, behavioral analytics, remote data capture, storage of all transaction data, and centralized Federated Enterprise SSO application protection. A detailed Capability Document for these solutions is available upon request.
01/01/2005 - 03/31/2009 - Chief Executive Officer - Third Wave International N.V. Curacao, N.A.
I was the CEO and Chief Technologist for this startup licensed International Telephone Company. We provided international origination and termination of voice telephone calls, sold and provided connectivity to the Internet, created an Island network of wireless links to customers, provided off-site data storage vaults with high security links between their buildings and our facility. The network was based on using high-security Free Space Optical links and Millimeter Wave Radio systems. We were also planning on launching a high bandwidth "Triple Play" offering of fixed and mobile voice, and internet access. Major accomplishments included: 1) Dealt with lack of policing of wireless spectrum; 2) Provided secure collocation facility; 3) Provided lower than ever costs for international & domestic voice and data communications while being profitable, and 4) Managed and monitored all network components remotely (including Routers, Switches, DACS, PLCs, transceivers and Power systems), to optimize performance, while using the highest levels of REMOTE ACCESS SECURITY for our clients and customers.
