Alec Barnard

Principal Information Security Consultant at CBTS

Salt Lake City Metropolitan Area

As a security and penetration testing professional, I take a strategic view of both the business and technology landscape. I understand how business and security come together—and how security can bring real benefit to the business. I leverage my superior interpersonal skills to communicate with C-level executives and business stakeholders—and provide clear, effective threat modeling to demonstrate security ROI.

I partner with internal and external clients to determine potential security risks, develop effective testing approaches, and present actionable remediation strategies. I clearly communicate risk, benefit, and options to ensure buy-in and drive the consensus required for strong security policies. I then utilize a range of approaches—including penetration testing, single sign-on, and secure token authentication—to drive a robust security posture.

My approach to tool and technology selection is strategic—with a focus on maximum value, superior features, and capabilities for continuous cost containment. In addition, I thrive in new, complex, and ambiguous environments—and rapidly learn unfamiliar technologies and tools. Finally, I coach and mentor junior team members to enhance the full range of their skills and abilities.
