About David Roberts
Authentic, engaging, driven, and highly credentialed cybersecurity and security framework expert with entrepreneurial and C-level experience in multiple technical organizations spanning over 2 decades. Professionally, I am at my best when actively engaged with small high performing teams on complex IT, security, risk, or compliance projects. I am always contextualizing the technical side of the business with the operational side ensuring profitable action is being taken towards primary goals.
I hold multiple degrees including a MAR from Liberty University, MATS from American University of Biblical Studies, BBA from Clayton State University, and recent programs in Technology Leadership from Cornell University. I currently hold the following industry credentialing: CISSP, CCSP, SSCP, CAP/CGRC, CSM®, CCP, & AZ-900. I am also prepping for the super fun Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) by EC Council, not just for another cert, but rather to ensure I stay sharp in a rapidly changing industry.
“David’s ability to balance the technical and interpersonal aspects of the CISO role created and fostered a palpable camaraderie. He has an uncanny ability to explain the most technical concepts in a manner that lay people could understand. His sense of humor and approachability made it easy for the team to connect with him on a personal level. To the extent cybersecurity can be fun, David made it so.”
