Andrew Ford –

In a cybersecurity market full of threats, fear, and confusion, Andrew Ford’s message to businesses is simple: there is no such thing as a zero-risk security posture. Kind of like how zombies always manage to break through the plywood barricades in movies, the ever-evolving nature of cybersecurity threats means your systems will always have some level of vulnerability – an IT Risk Management mindset is the best defense!

An accomplished sales management and sales performance expert, Andrew Ford is the author of ”Winning Body Language for Sales Professionals” (McGraw-Hill) and received a lifetime achievement award from TechConnex in 2015 for his sales leadership work in Canada.  In his current role as VP Sales & Marketing of Next Dimension, Andrew is excited to support Next Dimension’s growth trajectory as it expands its service offerings to promote customer IT Risk Management.
