Hello, nice to meet you. I’m

Ralph Hogaboom


I’m a senior cybersecurity leader with 20 years experience. I build strong security programs from the ground up; so far, in state government. Strong communication skills and eager to work with others. Most importantly, I can demonstrate that security is cost-effective, better, faster, more efficient way  of doing business. Equally comfortable in the board room and at the linux CLI. Have a soft spot for quickly turning out effective governance from the top down – strategies, policies, standards, procedures, guidelines, and baselines.

Transformational change is always possible. But it requires hard work. All the messy, unpleasant jobs that build up over time will keep an organization in a rut. Let’s do the work – and we’ll dig out of it.
