Helping to safeguard the Digital Frontier: My Cybersecurity Odyssey & Portfolio

About Me

Welcome to my digital haven at SolonTech Consulting, LLC.  I’m Matt, and this platform is more than just a website; it’s a gateway into the dynamic and ever-evolving world of cybersecurity and digital forensics.

My journey

My career began in law enforcement, dedicating 17 years to protecting and serving.  This journey took a pivotal turn in 2006 when I delved into digital forensics with the Internet Crimes Against Children task force.  This experience was a steppingstone into a world where technology meets law enforcement, leading me to acquire a Master of Forensic Science degree in 2011, bolstered by dual Bachelor’s degrees in Information Technology-Visual Programming and Criminal Justice Administration.

Certifications and Expertise

My relentless pursuit of knowledge and excellence in the field has earned me prestigious certifications, including CISSP, CFCE, GCFA, and GMON.  These credentials reflect my deep expertise in network monitoring, incident response, and computer forensics.

Role at SolonTech

As the founder and driving force behind SolonTech Consulting, I offer a unique blend of information tailored for the cyber-savvy and newcomers to the digital world.  My professional role involves conducting and managing critical incidents for global organizations, spanning ransomware attacks, data breaches, and email compromises.  My approach combines hands-on threat-hunting operations with strategic security network monitoring, utilizing my extensive understanding of criminal methodologies and forensic techniques.

Beyond the Professional Realm

My passion for knowledge extends beyond my professional endeavors.  I am a lifelong learner and an enthusiastic sharer of knowledge.  I’ve embarked on a new journey as an author, diving into the realm of blog posts to connect and share insights with a broader audience.  This site is the next step in that journey.  I’ve presented at various prestigious forums, including the New Hampshire Bar Association CLE Program and the New England Division International Association for Identification Annual Conference, with more speaking engagements on the horizon.

Collaboration and Services

I have collaborated closely with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in New Hampshire, providing digital forensics and incident response services.  My expertise spans several domains, including Security/Risk Management, Security Architecture and Engineering, and Identity and Access Management.

At SolonTech, my mission is to help safeguard your online presence and help you navigate the complexities of the digital world.  My role is multifaceted – from providing detailed information on digital forensics on various digital mediums to best practices in cybersecurity and incident response procedures.
