Information security is an evolving battleground with critical flaws being found every day; your company’s approach to security should continuously evolve too. I can help you implement continuous security monitoring solutions that can be centrally managed by as few remote personnel as possible.

As an independent contractor, I am not obligated to oversell you the most expensive solutions. I can provide higher-quality, personally tailored security consulting, compliance auditing & remediation and general IT engineering for a fraction of what local firms charge by designing solutions customized to your specific needs using the same open-source technologies the big-name products leverage.

Compliance Auditing

Whether you want to know if you are really PCI compliant or what your compliance requirements are, or if you need outside auditing of corporate security policies, I can provide in-depth and cost-effective services, even if you know nothing about IT and have little to no IT staff.

 IT Growth Planning

Has your small business’ IT needs grown beyond your capabilities? I can provide assessments and design and recommend cost-effective upgrade plans and personally implement or oversee their implementation. I can help translate what you need and why and how it will save you money.

Systems & Network Engineering

Does your organization already have a complex IT operation? I can work with a variety of deployed systems, including Linux and Microsoft solutions for web, email, unified communications, virtualization, and security and monitoring solutions.


I can write scripts to automate many manual processes, including custom middleware to enable automation between disparate systems. My solutions include centralized and remote management and monitoring, allowing a minimal staff to managing a large, complex production IT system.


I retained Dan to architect and implement PGP key usage for secure signing and data encryption. Dan goes the extra mile for his customers and made sure I was in a position to independently manage the environment once he was done. His deep knowledge of encryption and implementation patterns was invaluable in setting up and managing a secure PGP key regime.
