An Important Message for IT Professionals
As an IT professional, you know that since technology is always changing, you should always be studying. Unfortunately, you may be so busy that you don’t have time to study, and your network diagram is out of date. Because of the many IT roles that have been assigned to you outside of your field of expertise, you may even feel like a brain surgeon who’s been assigned to perform cardiac surgery, too.
An IT Vital Systems Review can save you hundreds of hours of research on IT security and productivity topics.
This review also serves to:
- Answer your questions and show you action steps for patching holes in your network
- Help implement changes that will help you and your organization
- Help you take your company’s network to a higher efficiency level
- Give you the credit for making the systems better
- Provide ways to implement ideas for less money
You may want to know ahead of time what I will tell the executives:</p>
I will let you know exactly what to expect during the meeting with the executives. First, I’ll understand your network, your concerns, and we will catalog all vulnerabilities.

Since there are often many avenues to solving IT challenges, I want to choose the recommendation that is the best fit for your organization and you, the IT professional. That means using tools and techniques you are already familiar with wherever possible and explaining any technology that is new to you.
I understand your plight of having to fix everything that is broken every day, while also being expected to accomplish projects as well. I am here to provide you one-on-one accelerated learning and to be another source of quick IT answers. You will receive all the credit for doing the work. I am simply a guide.
Mike Foster, CEH, CISA, CISSP
Read this quote from a CFO—maybe this could be your CFO as well:
I believe that I said before that one of the most notable changes since your visit is the awareness of issues that are often overlooked or seen as ‘unimportant,’ which are actually critical to the department’s efficiency (and sanity).“
I was amazed not only by the depth of your program, but also by the fact you kept everyone involved in the subject. Your discussion on laptop encryption alone would have made the trip worthwhile! I appreciated your pitch to the CEOs, many of whom are not informed enough to understand or fight for IT security.
Mike is very good at what he does, and his knowledge of IT security issues is obviously extensive. I came away with some additional tools to research, try out and put in place.
Not only are you well informed, but you are able to communicate your information on multiple levels at the same time—to IT professionals and to the CEOs. I learned a lot from your program, and plan to check out all of the free information you supplied to us about security-related products and websites.
Whether management wants to admit it or not, IT security should be a growing concern for every company that does business on the Internet today. We’re lucky to have people like Mike around to help protect our interests. His content was excellent, contemporary and easy to understand.
It was a wonderful experience listening to Mike. His presentation was great, and I learned so much in that brief period of time. I know now that what we are currently doing as far as security is probably not enough, but thanks to Mike, our eyes are open and we know the steps we need to take.
Working with Mike was much more productive than past experiences with consultants because his focus wasn’t overly technical, which allowed the decision- makers to better grasp our needs. I wish we could work with Mike more, at least once a year in order to keep us on track. He provided a fresh outlook from a different perspective, and the outcome of his visit was excellent. While his technical knowledge is amazing, I was most impressed with Mike’s people skills. I very much look forward to our next meeting.
