Dr. Gary Griffith

Dr. Gary Griffith has worked in the field of information systems and technology for over 30 years. From 1994 to 1998 I held Secret Security Clearance while I was working with a team of system and software engineering implementing software solution for the Special Operations Aircraft required by the Army’s Special Forces. From 1998 – 2012 Trane/Ingersoll Rand – I held many positions which involved information assurance and software security. I have written several engineering applications and applications which required secure connection to Enterprise Resource Planning systems. I was part of a team that implemented a DMZ which allowed the engineering team to share designs with suppliers. In my leadership roles I responsible for facility security, computer lab access security, separation of duties, and maintained Sarbanes Oxley requirements. I was part of team that implemented several disaster recovery plans for shop floor, engineering, and ERP systems for minor and major disasters including weekly/monthly system back up along with total loss scenarios. As part of my career growth I took on a role as the project/program manager implementing a worldwide trade compliance solution. This new system covered denied parties, free trade, and handled both importation and exportation of goods. My last role was to help a team implement a new ERP system worldwide.

I started my teaching career in parallel during the years 1998-2012. During this time, I was an adjunct instructor for Austin Peay State University where I taught several programming languages courses in C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, PHP and I also taught courses covering the Principles of Information Security. In 2012 I was hired by Walden University to teach Masters Courses in operating systems and networking, leadership, and Cyber security. I was a member of the team that helped Walden University obtain their designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense from NSA in 2014. During this last year I was on a team that implement the new Big Data Analytics specialization in the Master of Science in Information Technology program. I have presented Cyber Security requirements at several cyber security conferences, and I participated in a panel discussion on cyber security at the 2017 Community College Cyber Security Summit. I have presented several Webinars on cyber security for Walden University.
