Mr. Anderson, MCSER, CCNP, CISSP

Mr. Anderson is a “white hat” ethical security hacker and business continuity advisor with extensive experience in the development & implementation of security-focused audit and control programs. His identity is concealed so he may surreptitiously perform security breaches at the request of AAFCPAs’ clients, including: physically entering company location(s), setting up a laptop and attempting to establish a network connection. These breaches are part of AAFCPAs’ information technology and cybersecurity risk assessments designed to assess and test client vulnerabilities associated with your technology environment.  Read Mr. Anderson’s full profile. >>
