I have held one of the rarest of certifications in the IT industry, Certified Ethical Hacker, since 2009. I also hold the MCSE 2012 Server, VMware Certified Data Center Associate, the Sonicwall CSSA, a Ruckus Wireless cert and have held other certifications I've let expire (CCNA, A and others). The role I have taken on is not to come in and sell you a specific brand or service, but to educate you on why your IT strategy may still be lacking. I'll also deliver some examples of how hackers would hit a company like yours, even if you think "I don't have anything of value on my computer". Those types of attitudes are a dream for hackers to uncover.
We contracted with Mr. Howard to be the sponsor of a security event to be held in the Cincinnati area. The evening before the event we received an email stating that he was in an accident and was unable to perform the security event. We offered to "fill in" for him so that his other attendee's/sponsor's wouldn't be left out but got no response. We contacted Mr. Howard a while after the event to request a refund to which we received a response that he was surprise we hadn't received it with a promise to follow up. That was on January 8, 2016 and to date he has not responded to our repeated attempts to make contact in regards to the sponsorship fee.
I would not recommend utilizing the services of Mr. Howard. We've had no opportunity to even verify his expertise in the security realm due to the cancellation of the event but can attest that his professionalism, communication, and the ethics he boasts so much about are not very strong in the business arena.
Our company had a huge security breach where data was out in the open. Dave was able to guide us back to a more secure posture and helped us in the reporting of the breach to appropriate authorities and compliance agencies.

What to Expect
If you attend one of my events, you will walk away with a better understanding of how a hacker breaks into your network and what they're doing with your data. You'll also learn tips on how to defeat them, free tools you can use that are highly effective in preventing attacks, and how to analyze an attack if it does happen.
You will also learn how to plan for future attacks and disaster recovery scenarios in the event that your data is compromised in some manner and how do you get your company back online as quickly as possible.
During our presentation you will witness technical hacks, social engineering hacks, and tools of the trade that are used against you, but in many cases can also be used in your defense. Dave is featured on national radio power house 700 WLW AM heard in 38 states and on podcast as Dave The IT Guy. You'll also find Dave on television as he was cast for the now #1 rated reality survival show from the Weather Channel called Fat Guys in the Woods. Dave has also filmed TV demo reels for paranormal television shows as well. You'll find Dave to be an all around educated, worldly and strong person. You'll also find him to be one of the top tech speakers you'll find anywhere.

Influences & Inspiration
2013 started off as the year of the hack, but 2014 has certainly emerged as the year that hacking became mainstream and touched almost everyone in some manner. My mission is to educate as many as possible on how not to become a victim of these attacks.
