Why I founded RADICL Defense
As a cybersecurity industry veteran and inventor, I am dissatisfied with the current state of technology and the offerings available to small businesses – especially those targeted by nation state threats. I am co-founding RADICL to defend these innovate and important companies, and by so doing, serve and defend the interests of the United States.
