As a Cybersecurity Analyst with SecureStrux, Rico helps clients understand their risks, compliance requirements, and the impact of potential threats, as each will undoubtedly affect the other. He provides cybersecurity assessments for organizations to meet tight guidelines in performing effectively on government contracts.
Prior to joining the SecureStrux team, Rico had a decade-long career in the US Air Force, the federal government, and the Boeing Company.
Rico believes that cybersecurity is ever-evolving and that the shifting landscape allows for both opportunities and challenges alike. “I want to be on the forefront of change in how the industry measures protecting information,” he says. That’s why he stays involved off-the-clock as an active member of a Linux Geek group, which hosts several small and large industry leaders like Dell, Microsoft, and Secureworks to name a few. He also spends his time teaching Microsoft and other courses at a local college.
“Our faces may ultimately be unknown, but our duty — at least in small part — is what helps our nation, regardless of sector, remain prosperous and free.”Rico Bridgett
