Shane Hale

Shane is a Navy veteran with over 10+ years’ experience in the cyber and network security field. Shane earned his bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University in Business Management. With an emphasis in small business management and cybersecurity operations. Shane and David met while serving in the navy.

Their career path’s funny enough followed the exact path from start to finish including their first job outside the navy as government contractors in a cyber security testing and planning role.

Shane and David’s motivation for opening their own firm was to have an emphasis on small to medium sized businesses. By focusing on this underserved market, they believe that they can provide superior service, give back to the community, and keep the cost reasonable. By keeping the cost down we can secure businesses’ assets and help them stay safe and operating.

His cyber security career path started in the Navy working at a high-level performing NSA level inspections at government sites helping to secure and harden naval networks. Later he worked in the corporate world providing high level cyber protection for one of the larger telecommunication companies in the United States. His role there led him to manage a group that was responsible for detection, inspection, scanning, and remediation of all assets. The tool set he has worked with helps him understand and quickly adapt to any environment that needs to be assessed or fixed. Before his roles in cyber security Shane was a firefighter and paramedic. He enjoyed the public service aspect and loved the challenging nature of the job. In his free time, you can find Shane outdoors with his family. He loves been outside and getting dirty in the mountains, desert, lakes, or rivers. He also enjoys spending time with his family. In the spring of 2021 Shane and his wife Melissa adopted 3 children. They fostered their children through a non-profit program in the state of Virginia. After almost 3 years they were able to adopt and complete their dreams of being a family.
