He identifies operational strengths and weaknesses, and creates a “befriend fear” modus operandi. This is the foundation for an extraordinary, winning, synergistic culture.

Based on these first-hand experiences, John became an award-winning author, keynote speaker and national media personality on cybersecurity, and flourishing in the face of failure. His clients include the Pentagon, 60 Minutes, Visa, and any organization that values its data and people.
