Protector Support is the support, consulting, and “all other” site for Tom Brownsword.

I’m a certified computer security analyst with over 20 years experience in various information technology disciplines.

Here are my current, active certifications:

  • Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP – 2008)
  • GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA – 2009)
  • ITILv3 Foundations (2008)

Here are the areas in which I have experience (both operations and security)

  • Desktop and servers (Windows, Unix / Linux)
  • Networks
  • Web servers
  • Risk management
  • Intrusion detection
  • Network defense
  • Team leadership
  • Cyber analysis and reporting
  • Online business

While I’m not an “expert”, I can hack my way through several scripting languages and can kludge together an effective script, given enough time.

My passion is helping people protect the assets they’ve created. That’s why I call myself The Business Protector: you build it and I’ll help you protect it.

Protector Support is my “catch-all” site that facilitates communication between you and me. Just click on any of the menu items at the top to get started. Or check out my “Consulting” page to see the services I offer, or stop by my “Links” page to learn about the other sites I run in my online business.

Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear from you — and the contact form works for suggestions and (ugh! Say it isn’t so!) “complaints” as well as everything else… 🙂
