Matthew Ireland – NTT Research, NTT Security

He anticipates a trend, the outsourcing of data protection that his employer is well-positioned to assume on behalf of corporate clientele. For many companies, it’s a question of when, not if, they’ll be hacked, Matthew Ireland warns, and they may not even know about it for three to six months while the consequences accrue. “We’re […]

Tracy Barnes – State of Indiana

While it may not be a Dickensian “best of times, worst of times” scenario, there’s no doubt that 2020 turned much of what state governments do squarely on its head. With increased demands for services during the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with new regulations limiting how state employees could interact with those in need, Tracy Barnes […]

Kevin Baldus – Brown Smith Wallace

Walk into any Best Buy and what do you see? Computers, big-screen TVs, appliances big and small. Cellular phones. Home stereo speakers sometimes taller than the person charged with selling them. What you also see are dollar signs because technology is expensive—especially new technology. When Kevin Baldus was hired as the CIO at Brown Smith […]

Kevin Rast – Simon Roofing

His employer noted for fashioning safe and secure roofs for nationwide commercial clientele, Kevin Rast can be certain of the stability of Simon Roofing’s data center in Youngstown, Ohio. Yet if it were struck by a meteorite, he says business as usual could resume in three or four hours. A veteran technology professional who became […]

Peiman Navid – The Bradford Group

Noted for its array of sentimental collectibles sure to tug heartstrings on holidays—especially Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day—The Bradford Group knows what drives emotions. Could be Thomas Kinkade artistry, always popular around the Yuletide. Could be personalized jewelry for Valentine’s Day, or a music box for mom or grandma come Mother’s Day. And for […]

John Ellinger – Bowling Green State University

In his more than 30 years of IT experience at the university level, he’s built events management systems from scratch and guided cloud migrations for campus operations and […]

Brent Maher – Johnson Financial Group

So, just how well are your finances doing these days? Pandemic and economic recession aside, finding the details may be complicated if your wealth is spread across multiple financial institutions, funds and assets. Yet having a clear picture is crucial, not only to you individually, but to the advisors and counselors guiding your financial decisions, […]

Albert Stadler – Crowder College

Albert Stadler remembers the day in 2019 when he got a phone call from nearby Crowder College. It had been hit by a crippling ransomware attack. In no time, Stadler, then the CIO at Missouri Southern State University, was on his way to help assess the damage. Stadler’s reputation as the “go-to guy” in the […]

Tarunjeet “T.J.” Mann – Children’s Mercy Kansas City

Anybody still doubt the need for a hospital’s defenses against data theft? Then access the dark web via an anonymizing browser and see what’s for sale. Among the items most in demand: electronic medical records of babies and small children, some of whom have died. As a bonus to the buyer, chances are at least […]

Bridger Moreland – Manatt’s Inc.

Enjoying that Sunday afternoon drive past the amber waves of grain and copious cornfields of the Midwest? As the road runs straight and smooth under you, it’s a good bet Manatt’s paved it, says Bridg Moreland. For almost 75 years, Manatt’s has built or resurfaced the roads crisscrossing America’s heartland, while building its own network […]

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.
