Beau Monday – Punahou School

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The need for cybersecurity training ongoing vis-a-vis the growing threats of ransomware, fraud and identity theft, Beau Monday ensures personnel at Punahou School, the largest private K-12 in Hawaii, keep abreast. But rather than subjecting the 1,300-plus workforce to annual or semiannual seminars on the subject, Monday arranges for monthly micro-trainings that, to his thinking, […]

Russ Selken – Modesto City Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Sports fans, the game is on here in Modesto today. Taking to the field—or rather, the air—are drones piloted by middle schoolers. And these middle schoolers came to play, showing dexterity and poise throughout this scoreless tie. But wait! There’s a breakaway—just look at the No. 33 drone swoop down the right side—bobbing, weaving—soaring up […]

Shawn Miller – Terumo Americas Holding Inc.

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Science- and logic-minded since boyhood, Shawn Miller figures he made the right choice long ago by opting for technology instead of, say, chemistry.  “Chemistry doesn’t change anywhere near the pace of infotech,” Miller muses. “H2O is always water, H2SO4 is always sulfuric acid, but there’s always something new in our field. It’s constantly evolving and […]

A padlock may be the perfect security system for a bicycle—but would be rather impractical for a phone that fits in a pocket. As far as Bob Schlotfelt is concerned, the same idea applies to organizations which, like your phone, need the right security for the right circumstances.   So, when he started working for an […]

Russell Uyeda – 4over

High-tech as the world may be, there’s still much need for old-school printed material. Someone shopping for a house might peruse online listings but still appreciate a detailed brochure from the realtor. Professional as a contractor’s website might be, there’s still much to gain from mailing postcards to homeowners in need of reroofing or window […]

Viggo Forde – Snohomish County

Est. reading time: 5 mins

While it’s relatively easy to learn the outcome of a criminal case, everything that precedes the verdict isn’t so transparent—unless you’re in the courtroom. That’s changing in Washington’s Snohomish County, where a progressive-minded IT leader collaborates with the prosecutor’s office to create a public-facing dashboard that will trace cases from arrest to adjudication. Such tools […]

In 2017, the leadership at Tualatin Valley Water District decided it was time to have a dedicated information technology department and someone at the helm of that team.

Kwame Fields – Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco

Kwame Fields sees it all the time, but it still surprises him. As the chief information security officer and chief diversity officer for FHLBank San Francisco, he cannot believe how many people still use passwords that don’t meet even the basic standard for security. “You can have every piece of cybersecurity infrastructure in place, but […]

Jill Ibeck – Jeffco Public Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Jill Ibeck joined Jeffco Public Schools in July 2021 as its chief information officer, the COVID-19 pandemic was still in full swing, and the district’s IT strategy was more reactive than proactive. Staff continued following local public health orders and struggled to bring students back into the classroom. Recently, circumstances have been shifting. “We […]

Julie Judd – Ventura County Office of Education

Est. reading time: 5 mins

According to the K12 Security Information eXchange, student data is one of the top commodities on the dark web. That’s because it’s not monitored as closely as data generated by adults, giving criminals more time to exploit information including social security numbers and medical histories.  “Students don’t have established credit, so we need to do […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
