Detailed information about M. E. Kabay's professional work.

*For those deprived of the infinite joy (!) of having studied Latin in their youth (!), the words curriculum vitae mean literally, the course of life.



What I do as a consultant:

My motto in consulting is Progress Towards Autonomy**: I generally ask to work closely with someone from the client organization who will learn why I am approaching problems as I do and who will be able to carry the knowledge and methodology into the organization permanently after I finish the contract.

Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a "just" a security consultant: I'm an operations-management consultant and statistician whose security expertise threatens to consume my professional life. So, with no particular rank or order, here are some of the ways I am useful to consulting clients:

  • Operations management analysis and optimization
  • Facilities security assessments from perimeters to architecture
  • Security policy: assessment, development and improvement
  • Organizational dynamics: analysis of problems, resolution of conflicts [using Real-Time Notes, Computer-Aided Consensus and Computer-Aided Thematic Analysis]
  • Experimental design and analysis: biological, social and physical sciences
  • Market research: survey design and analysis, focus groups, interviews
  • Technical writing and editing: white papers, journalism, textbooks, RFPs, prospectuses for new companies
  • Medical informatics: hospital/clinic/individual practice information & physical security
  • Course development and delivery: in situ and online applications
  • Membership in Advisory Boards: new corporations in information technology
  • Serving as an expert witness in legal proceedings
