Industry Expert Coach

Draw Gransmiller

Cybersecurity Instructor

Mr. Gansmiller has several years of experience in developing and writing network and security policy for the U.S. Department of Energy. His work has given him extensive insight into NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) policy requirements as well as all aspects of the U.S. Department of Defense STIGs (Security Technical Implementation Guide).

His classes are engaging seminars for students, rather than the typical "death by PowerPoint" method where the trainer reads a set of PowerPoint slides, resulting in a drowning interest.
