“Jack Phillips carries the extensive experience of a security professional, the knowledge of a technology specialist, and the integrity of a trusted advisor in equal measure. During a particularly challenging security incident at our home, Jack stepped in to provide a formal risk assessment along with a comprehensive mitigation plan, and subsequently engaged his remarkable professional network to execute the security reinforcement plan under his direct management. Jack removed the burden of navigating a complex program of work while ensuring excellent quality and execution of every element. Jack Phillips is that rare professional who is both formidable in his capabilities and skills, yet humble and personable in his personal interactions. I highly recommend the services of Jack Phillips and PSC Security Consulting.”
