Ari Mileikowsky is a graduate of Champlain College with a B.S. in Computer Networking & Cybersecurity, as well as a specialization in Cybersecurity. Currently, Ari is an Information Security Analyst and Certified Information Systems Security Professional in waiting.
At a young age, Ari began experimenting with information technology, repairing smartphones, digging into code, and assisting his surrounding community with IT issues. During his years in high-school, Ari developed an aptitude for leadership; joining a variety of organizations such as DECA and JROTC. In DECA, Ari crafted a business plan based on making electric cars feel and sound like their gasoline-powered equivalents that won at the state competition. Throughout his 4 years in JROTC, Ari devoted over 300 hours to his local community and advanced to the rank of 1st Lieutenant.
During college Ari found a passion in Cybersecurity, understanding the impact that attackers could cause. He wanted to protect others from scams, having their information stolen, or being blackmailed. After Champlain College hosted their first Conference ‘Understanding Digital Threats,’ Ari discussed the issue of Cybersecurity with local businesses, and non-profits, coming to the conclusion that there was a lack of affordable Cybersecurity protection.
Thus Ari founded Trusted Intruders, a company dedicated to protecting small and medium-sized organizations as well as non-profits. His vision is to secure America, one organization at a time, ultimately ensuring our government and critical infrastructure is safe.
