nformation travels faster than ever before and needs to be just as swiftly protected. As a founding partner of Silent Sector Cyber Security Solutions (www.silentsectorcyber.com), Zach Fuller is a security guru devoted to developing unique security processes that achieve exactly this. “Today, I see a strong need in the industry to bridge the gap between the brilliant technology minds and the many organizations that need to implement better security practices,” Fuller says. Fuller graduated as a special forces engineer from the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare School in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. After his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, Fuller pursued his entrepreneurial passions. “With my background in building businesses and two partners with 20-plus years each in cyber security, my business partners and I found the opportunity to transform the industry as we know it.” And transform it they did! Silent Sector opened its doors in early 2016 and provides unparalleled security solutions to impactful organizations. Solutions include security assessments, personnel training and process development. Fuller notes that Silent Sector serves a wide range of companies and organizations that hold some type of sensitive information and need to protect it.

What do you enjoy most about what you do? I really enjoy creating awareness and educating people about security concepts. I like associating with the brilliant technical people in the security industry and then presenting their value to the general public using simplified and effective messaging. What are your other passions? I love the outdoors. I spend time mountain biking, hiking, four-wheel driving and camping. Arizona is such a great place for outdoor adventure that it’s hard to spend too much time inside an office! What do you enjoy most about living in Arizona? I’ve lived in seven different states, and Arizona is my favorite by far. We have beautiful areas for outdoor adventure while still having plenty of city life. I love that it’s a great place to do business thanks to the low cost of living, taxes and many initiatives by the cities and state. SO SCOTTSDALE! |
