How ConMon360 Started

From CPA to Cybersecurity Consultant! It may seem like quite a switch, but my CPA background prepared me perfectly for my current role. First, I have always operated from a risk mindset. Second, in both accounting and cybersecurity, strong processes are key. That is where I see the opportunity to best help my clients and that is where my core strengths lie.

Having consulted for a number of organizations in both the government and commercial space, I have seen first-hand the chaos that surrounds the assessment and compliance process and the amount of money wasted because of a lack of standardization and automated processes. I started ConMon Solutions to help organizations end that cycle of just trying to “get through” an assessment, only to face another assessment around the corner. My goal is to add significant value both in terms of cost savings and creating streamlined processes to better counter security risks and to free clients from the pressure of feeling like they are always playing catch-up.

The company name – ‘ConMon’ – comes from cyber speak for “Continuous Monitoring” – the process of continuous evaluation of security controls to ensure they remain effective in
protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical assets. Like any founder, I went back and forth on the choice of company name. ConMon conveys the essence of what we do and the “360” is our promise that we will monitor your critical assets every hour, every day, every year.

When I am not helping clients improve their cybersecurity infrastructure and effortlessly meet compliance audits, you can find me cheering a little too loudly at my sons’ basketball games, traveling or relaxing with my family in our Potomac, Maryland home.
