Ralph is one the most active participants in information security that I know. I had the pleasure of participating in class instruction from Ralph in his roll of a SANS instructor. I have worked closely with Ralph as a peer on complex, large enterprise polices and security issues. I have also had the pleasure to participate with Ralph in the local chapters of several national and global security organizations. I am sure there are many that have grown from Ralph’s leadership even more that will benefit with Ralph as a committee member.
