Scott Charles

PRINCIPAL | Technology

Scott began his adventures with the government 20 years ago as a contractor supporting unclassified desktops at Sandia National Laboratories, after already establishing his technical skills in a small technology company as well as in retail computer support. He quickly rose to a lead technical and teaching position and thrived while being responsible for multiple remote locations.

Shortly thereafter, he was identified to help implement a major restructuring of classified computing. Upon completion of that project he was tapped to lead classified computing support for Sandia’s Military Liaison group. While with Military Liaison, he engaged in Information Assurance, policy development and accreditation. After successfully leading the group through a full cyber audit by DOE oversight, Scott was approached to become an Information System Security Officer in Sandia’s high security classified area.

Scott oversaw the development and implementation of all system security plans, computer policies and procedures, incident response, forensics, and cyber security posture in this role. After several successful years, Scott turned full time to cyber security Research and Development, becoming embedded with an internal program, and also supporting all aspects of their multiple networks, including desktop/application support, server administration, network security, encryption implementation, documentation and accreditation. 

Scott was also utilized in a wider support role for Sandia National Labs, advising numerous partners and customers, mentoring new hires, and interfacing with external entities.

Chad Cooper

PRINCIPAL | Operations

Chad started his career in Washington, DC as a Test and Evaluation Analyst in support of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization’s National Missile Defense (NMD) program. After moving to Albuquerque in 1997, Chad continued his work on the program in support of Boeing’s successful bid as the NMD program’s Lead System Integrator. He went on to join BDM in support of the Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center’s Y2K readiness effort. At the end of the contract, Chad co-founded an internet marketing company and later became the Director of Interactive Services at Rick Johnson & Company. Three years later, he began what would be a 16 year career as a Financial Planner where he was an 11 time qualifying and lifetime member of the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table and received multiple other awards and accolades.

Born and raised in New Orleans, LA, Chad received his joint BA in Economics and Sociology/ Anthropology from Middlebury College in Vermont in 1995. He earned his MBA from the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management in 2001.
