Foluwa T. Rewane
Founder, CEO, and Security Management Consultant, CCTA
Foluwa T. Rewane started his 20+ years of Technology Management, while working at a technical centre as a 1st level junior support tech, when a Director that he was reporting into, pulled him aside and asked, “Are you doing this job solely for a ‘paycheck’ or do you want to learn a skill that would help you to build a career”. At that time, Foluwa was just a junior tech trying to pay his way through university, and all he knew was the difference between a switch, a router, and a firewall, so he said: “I want a career”, and he has never looked back ever since.
Since then Foluwa has worked for IBM Canada, NetSuite Canada, Epsilon Canada, Hostopia, CGI Consulting, Shoppers Drug Mart, Rogers Communications, Fidelity Investments Canada, Bell Canada, and RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) all in the capacity of a Security role while founding Iron Defence Security Corporation.
Foluwa is a Certified CounterIntelligence Threat Analyst (CCTA) from the McAfee Institute, and as a consultant he is primarily responsible for being on the front lines in the effort to ensure the confidentially, integrity and availability of critical assets with regards to Cyber Security Defence. Foluwa has focused his skills toward working in a Cyber Defence Operations (CDO) unit as part of the Enterprise Cyber Security team with the goals of protecting an organization’s networks, data and their brand. Foluwa supports the risk mitigation efforts of the Information Security department primarily through the application of security controls and mechanisms, and threat and risk assessment techniques.
Foluwa has dedicated his career to working in Cyber Security to help small businesses stay free of breaches, and this gives him a sure sense of achievement and satisfaction.
