David A. Africano

Managing Principal and CISO

I am an experienced, intrepid, cutting-edge, U.S. Army veteran with over twenty-three years of active, progressive experience in Information Technology and Cybersecurity.


I enjoy accepting significant challenges and working with dynamic teams of hard-charging professionals.


Throughout my career as an IT architecture and security executive, I have built a solid track record of improving processes and procedures, analyzing risk, and implementing useful tools within highly-regulated industries.


To achieve results, I leverage a balanced focus on strategic planning, operational processes, and risk assessment to ensure the achievement of all short and long-term goals while mitigating risk in a wide variety of environments.
