About NTI

Kim Schaffer

Kim Schaffer is one of NTI's highly skilled trainers. Kim joined the NTI team in 2003 to assist with NTI's training and internal security programs. His high assurance security development and implementation background gave us a better balance in addressing today's corporate and government environment including privacy and security support for recent legislation including GLB, HIPAA, FISMA, and Sarbanes-Oxley. Since much of NTI's training involves Incident Response Team building and U. S. Department of Defense security training, Kim is a perfect fit in our training program. Dedicated to NTI's mission, Mr. Schaffer also brings a fresh perspective to the Training and Development in Computer Forensics.

As Director of Strategic Relations for Tripwire, he mapped emerging security technologies into the integrity and assurance space.

As a consultant for SAIC and Booz Allen & Hamilton, he managed the audit and assessment of DoD research and development programs.
