My name is Shawn Dholakia-Kisnad and I am a cybersecurity professional responsible for implementing security plans and procedures to improve system integrity. To know me is to understand that I am a hands-on kind of guy. I’m a problem solver and love consulting with different groups to help with and learn new things. My interest in technologiy doesn’t end with security, though. I’ve been known to dabble in a little of everything, from cybersecurity to music to event production.
I’ve always been a people person and one who is very connected to family and friends. I’ve also always been a “techy” person. Diving into technology has allowed me to be continually invested in both as it opens new levels of connectivity and interaction everyday.
It’s almost impossible for me to sit still! When I’m not advocating for online safety, I can be found working out, hanging out at concerts and listening sessions, working on my karate skills, or spending time with friends and family.
I understand that while technology is an amazing thing, it can also be a place where people are the most vulnerable – sometimes unknowingly. I got involved with FortSafety because it shares my heart in protecting the younger generation, teaching them how to be safe on the internet and when interacting with other youth.
