Rick Dreger, President

Rick is president and co-founder of WaveGard. He has helped a wide range of clients solve complex cybersecurity challenges, including Fortune 100 companies, hospitals, law firms, associations, the Federal government, and dynamic mid-sized businesses. With experience that spans over 20 years, Rick’s expertise covers security program creation, risk intelligence assessments, next generation data protection, secure mobility, and wireless networking.

Rick obtained his Master of Science in Computer Engineering from Villanova and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering (EE/BME) from Duke University. Professionally, Rick maintains both his Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certifications. As a complement to his hands-on consulting experience Rick has been a contributor to Information Week, co-authored a McGraw Hill wireless security book, has hosted numerous cybersecurity presentations, and is actively teaching the capstone class for Georgetown University’s cybersecurity certificate course.

HFI Wealth Management has relied on the expertise and thoughtful guidance of WaveGard for nearly a decade. Like all financial organizations, HFI’s information security needs are compounded by the fact that we operate in a heavily regulated environment, one in which both regulators and clients expect that sensitive information and systems are safe. WaveGard principals wrote the book on information security. They are a high touch team of professionals.
