Preface: You likely don’t know me, and that’s ok. In fact, it’s generally how I like it to be. I want to change the world, not just plaster my name all over it as some sort of gratuitous ego stroke.

Security is a big field that continues to grow year after year. Companies around the world keep innovating and creating products that are prime for hacking. When you take a hard look at how to protect yourself, you begin to feel like this is just a big game of chess, moves and countermoves. Luckily though, you can turn this game of chess into a team sport. Adding a chess grandmaster to your team only seems fair.

There are many tasks for a development team to take on in the cyber security world, some are small and extremely complex while others are simpler but far larger in scope. One item in this later group is a process of what I like to call augmentation, or third party support, and it can be truly grueling in its own fashion.

I read articles almost daily about the skills gap and lack of qualified personnel within the Information Security profession. Just recently, Forbes ran an article that stated by 2019 there will be a shortage of 2 million cyber security jobs. Entrepreneur ran an article entitled “Why you Should Consider Outsourcing Computer Security.” In that article Edward Ferrera states “security is so hot that good people are hard to find.”

I had a couple of weeks of transition and I was talking with my friend Jim McMurry and he was telling me he could hardly believe he started his company, Milton Security, 10 years ago. Wow! 10 years I thought, from an idea and a desire to a company that has had ups and downs and seen competitors come and go. 10 years of growing a business into something that he is still proud of and that hasn't lost its family feeling, and that feeling isn't going anywhere. Jim invited me to come out and see the new building and his new project, and just be yet another security guy to walk through the door and be embraced by Milton.

This is an important year for me personally, and for the Milton family. Since starting Milton Security in 2007 I have always tried to make every new hire, and every new customer, a part of the Milton Family.

Over the past 10 years that we've grown Milton Security, our strategy has always been to assist our clients in mitigating risk, securing their assets and to go above & beyond expectations. Now we are improving our strategy to include a SOC Service.
