Vice President of Security
As Vice President of Security at Winxnet, Eugene leads the information security division which combines expertise, expert software and proven processes to ensure results. With over two decades of experience in information security, Eugene is recognized as one of the most accomplished security experts in the region. He is a Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP, 2004), has served on the executive committee of the Information Security Foundation (ISF), and holds an advanced degree in Physics from the University of Maine.
Eugene graduated Summa Cum Laude from Kharkov State University with an MSc in Physics. He chose the field of experimental physics in favor of his other long term interest, computer science, because of his passion for combining hands-on tinkering with intellectual exercises. As Eugene's expertise in computing outgrew single PC environments, he became involved in one of the first Internet providers in Maine, Agate Internet, heading its systems administration and security. After earning his advanced degree from the University of Maine, Eugene moved to Portland where he worked as a Senior Engineer for the first Information Security company in Maine, NMI InfoSecurity Solutions.
After nine years at NMI, Eugene started InfoSecurus, a Portland-based information security company. At InfoSecurus, Eugene offered his customers expertise in a wide range of services, including penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, risk assessments, security training and compliance support. Throughout his career Eugene has helped many customers in banking and other regulated and non-regulated industries greatly improve their security posture.
