Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Born and raised in Nigeria, I spent my childhood tinkering and quickly learned that I had a knack for breaking and fixing things. That childhood pastime eventually developed into an interest in information technology. Unlike malicious hackers, who use their tactics to wreak havoc, I was determined to use my knowledge to help others, not harm them. I guess you could say that I’m the opposite of the Nigerian prince scammer.

I spent 10 years building my career in information technology and cybersecurity in the UK before moving to Atlanta, Georgia with my wife and two daughters in 2002. Now, I have 30 years of information technology experience in four different continents under my belt.

Changing the Global Lanscape

As a cybersecurity and data protection specialist, I’m committed to safeguarding sensitive records and assets with internationally accepted best practices and standards. Globally, I have assisted various organizations and governments in building robust security programs to defend against vulnerabilities, exploits and threats. I served as the first CISO for the City of Atlanta, Director of Strategy and Continuous Improvement for the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Information of Security Department, and as an Independent Consultant to the United Nations.

In order to investigate the latest exploits, continually improve security solutions and actively train a larger workforce, I founded eFortresses Inc., CloudeAssurance, Inc., the UK chapter of the Honeynet Project and the Holistic Information Security Practitioner Institute (HISPI). As a natural entrepreneur, I’m always looking for the next opportunity to effect change. 

Investing in people

While my passion for entrepreneurship runs deep, it’s matched by my devotion to mentoring. After all, changing the world starts with training upcoming leaders. It has been a great privilege to pour into the lives of others and help them take steps toward success.

Strengthening communities

My skill set has given a certain shape to my life. Like a magnet, I’m drawn to fix what’s broken and to protect what’s vulnerable. That put me on a journey to write my first book.

NOT FICTION.

A mark of a true leader is one who looks behind to pull others up.
