Dave Pyle - Founding Partner and CTO
Dave Pyle co-founded Secure Technologies Group, LLC, beginning operations in January, 2006. As a
Senior Executive responsible for corporate strategy, business development and operations, Mr. Pyle immediately conceived and implemented a business and technical growth plan, making SecureTech a leader in providing expert information technology (IT) and information assurance (IA) services to government and commercial entities alike.
He has 25 years of experience leading successful business operations, including 16 years of IT experience, and has been implementing IA best practices for 11 years. He began government service with the National Security Agency, where he served in a number of varied and increasingly responsible positions. These positions brought experience and skill in logistics, software engineering, public key infrastructure implementation, automated cryptographic key management, network architecture and security engineering, and certification and accreditation of national intelligence information systems.
Mr. Pyle’s history has a strong track record for assessing the needs and tasks at hand, implementing solutions successfully, and taking responsibilities to a logical conclusion. In 2001, he left government service and joined the Eagle Alliance as a senior member of the technical staff, responsible for integrating IA functionality into an enterprise network modernization program. Mr. Pyle’s primary contribution to this effort included the infusion of security into the effort, not just in a hardware and software sense, but his ability to act as an agent of change to the mindset of the program team members. This change took the team from a “make it work” mentality to a “make it work securely” mentality, an important distinction for the government customer.
Before joining SecureTech, Mr. Pyle served as Manager, Information Operations and Assurance Group (IO&A) in the Titan Corporation. Initially holding a position as a Senior Information Systems Security Engineer, Mr. Pyle created and grew the IO&A Group to provide Security Engineering and Certification and Accreditation services to government entities across the intelligence community.
Mr. Pyle holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and is a participating Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the DoD Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center (CSIAC), formerly the IATAC.
