Shaping cyber security programs to propel organizations forward

The outhaul is a line which is part of the running rigging of a sailboat, used to extend a sail and control the shape of the curve of the foot of the sail. By effectively shaping the sail, the outhaul can better move the sailboat through the water.

I chose the name Outhaul Consulting because I believe that cyber security and compliance need to be shaped and constantly adjusted to match the changes in today’s world. By working with the organization to understand how best to adjust your security and compliance requirements, I can effectively move your company to its security objectives.

I have spent my entire career in the information technology field and over two decades in IT leadership. I understand how security can enhance or overtake an organization. My background includes security program implementation, compliance, network operations, infrastructure design, and software development. As a seasoned professional and a CISSP, I have the experience and credentials to work with organizations as a trusted security adviser.
By utilizing my experiences as a senior IT and Security leader, I can provide guidance and hands-on direction to your organization to improve your security posture and align your security program to your business.  

Contact me, Pat Osborne, to see how your security and compliance programs  can be shaped to better move you towards success.
