Professional Services Experience

Unisys                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Vice President, Global Security Services                                                                                                                                                                                            

I was the senior executive leading the security delivery capabilities companywide with nine directors/VP's and 130 direct reports while leveraging a virtual workforce of over 320 additional resources. Areas of responsibility include Strategic Consulting, Technical Consulting (to include penetration testing, forensic analysis, and War Gaming), Physical Security, Industrial Control System Security, Security Product Implementation and Systems integration, and Fully Managed Security Services.

Key Results

  • Consolidation of security personnel from across Unisys.
  • Transformed the organization to a service-centric execution model, which contributed or led to:
    • I drove the turnaround and salvage of key client “at-risk” engagements and relationships from dissatisfaction to the purchase of more services from our security team.
    • Identify and negotiate alliance partnership opportunities.
    • The identification of additional sales opportunities in established client environments.
    • Nurturing client relationships to establish long term partnerships and lucrative sales opportunities.
    • Through my client relationship approach, I grew one client from a $2m security consulting engagement into a $44m MSSP contract that is still growing. My practice grew another client from a quick security assessment into a $10m+ security roadmap project that may culminate in an MSSP contract. 
    • I led the strategic direction for very high visibility projects, both commercial and the public, to high client accolades.
    • Better visibility into global assets, costs, and revenue by consolidating the security teams globally.
    • Aligned uniformity amongst delivery methods and sales approaches globally.
    • Instrumental in establishing key alliance partnerships for specialty security capabilities.

Key Initiatives/Activities

The following are client engagements and programs crafted and implemented under my watch.

  • Cybersecurity readiness and program creation for Super Bowl 50 – Worked with the City, State, and local Police, Fire Departments, light rail, FBI, DHS, NFL, CBS, and surrounding community governments to establish security response and a comprehensive Concept of Operations guideline that was used up through the event and is now a standard. I received accolades from all stakeholders.
  • Data Center consolidation – Migrated 53 State data centers down to three while creating centralized cloud-based security capabilities leveraged across the various government agencies. (Physical move and testing of compute assets in under 60 days).
  • One of the leadership team responsible for negotiating and integrating Unisys Micro-segmentation software on Azure and Amazon Web Services.
  • Redesign network segmentation between IT and OT environments to safeguard critical infrastructure in two energy companies.
  • Assembled, empowered, and led a global team of CISO advisors that work with clients to set strategic objectives and achieve improved security program results.
