“I am familiar with Jim, both as a Sector Chief in the South Carolina InfraGard Members Alliance, and a participant in a presentation that Jim made to the group in December 2016. Jim is a Subject Matter Expert! He is also passionate about what he does, going out of his way to ensure the sector members receive the latest information to better assist them with understanding their increasing risks. Jim also has a talent for explaining the complicated into something that is easily understandable. At the December presentation, there were several hundred attendees, with varied perceptions of security. Jim enlightened all, without boring the more knowledgeable security members, nor talking over the head of the least knowledgeable security members - a herculean task, exasperated by the complexity of the topic. I am certainly better prepared in understanding security thanks to Mr. McGuffey. Thanks Jim”
