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 tot he bottom – strategies, policies, standards, procedures, guidelines, and baselines.

Transformational change is possible, but it requires doing the hard work of all the jobs people don’t want to do. All the messy, unpleasant jobs that build up in an organization keep it in a rut. Do that work – with me – and we’ll dig out of it.
