Chief Information Security Officer

Dennis E. Leber

About I do my job so that you may do yours! More importantly, I protect people. Cybersecurity is a sociotechnical practice, and human factors are paramount in success. As a CISO, I serve as an enabler, and I am accountable for guiding the organization in balancing risks and benefits. As the CTO, I guide the business on the digital business journey. My career objective is to drive and develop innovative business enabling and people protecting cybersecurity and technology strategies. I use my strategic and technical experience to develop solutions to the problems and risks that jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of systems and data. If left unaddressed, these risks result in devastating financial and reputational impacts on your organization. I offer a track record of providing meaningful insight and vision into developing goals, strategies, and programs that improve security, Infrastructure, technologies, and business goals. Results-oriented and highly qualified, I bring years of experience to each engagement. My record of accomplishments spans multiple industries, including Federal and State government, Health care, Higher Education, research, manufacturing, and financial industries. Coach, Mentor, Trainer – This is the core concept that guides my leadership.
