Mark’s identity was stolen as a child, requiring a great deal of time and energy to restore. From this experience Mark recognized the rising rate of identity theft resulting from a lack of data security within companies and organizations and the devastating consequences individuals and organizations face. These factors influenced Mark to build what is now a cutting-edge security and risk management training company.

After the tragic massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012, Mark was encouraged by several school and college officials to add a new training module to TBG’s suite of services. Using the US Department of Homeland Security and U. S. Department of Education’s recommended principles, Mark built a training program that will save lives, change thinking and change behavior, ultimately managing risk for individuals and organizations.
