Thank you for considering CMPrather, LLC for your Systems Administration / Network Security needs. In my 18+ years of consulting, I have been involved in all aspects of Information Technology / Information Systems projects, from end-user desktop support (also commonly referred to as Help Desk support), to designing networks from the ground up for start-up's. I have a strong background in HIPAA compliancy, assessing the security vulnerabilities of networks and implementing the necessary hardware and training to harden networks, protecting data from exploitation and attacks.
I enjoy working with end users and can customize IT training to fit your office needs. My company was founded on the premise that some businesses aren't big enough to need full-time IT support, but big enough to need a skilled IT Consultant who will become familiar with their system down to the smallest detail. I only make tactical and cost-effective recommendations when it comes to security and reliability while providing professional customer service. I'm passionate about what I love to do and IT Consulting is one of those passions. I strive to do things right and do things right the first time.Get in Touch
My objective is to support your office in the most practical, effective and efficient manner possible while ensuring the best protection of your data. My experience and familiarity with Systems Administration and Network Security includes Windows Server Operating Systems, which dates back to the NT4 days, but my skills are as current as Windows Server 2012. My desktop Windows OS experience is in the same field, going all the way back to Windows 3.11 through todays Windows 10, with every flavor in between. My experience with networking hardware, including switches, firewalls and wireless access points, will help address all aspects of security with you.
An extensive background in HealthCare IT, where HIPAA and HiTech Act set the standards for compliancy means there is great attention to detail exercised when helping you write or revise your Computer Use Policies. I take great pride in training your end users extensively in Best Practices for computer system security as well as being aware of Social Engineering vulnerabilities so they can help keep your network as secure as possible.
In the end, your security is only as strong as your weakest link. I'll help you get familiar with securing your smartphone, tablet and computer for encrypted communication, using VPN's to protect your internet connectivity and deploying configurations, various plug-ins and utilities which work with browsers, all designed to protect your internet access and personal data.Get in Touch
