A leading and internationally recognized expert in Cybersecurity  and Space technology delivering captivating and informative keynote engagements




Hi, Dick Wilkinson’s the name and Cybersecurity is my game.

I served in the US Army for 20 years and held a variety of technical leadership roles as Chief Warrant Officer.  My career of service continued as I became the CISO and CTO for the New Mexico Supreme Court where I directed critical IT and Cybersecurity operations. 

Most recently I Co-founded Proof Labs, a cybersecurity technology firm focused on enterprise security and space technology development.

When I am not acting as a global thought leader for topics like IoT security, AI security tools, and CISO professional development, I invest my time in mentorship of military members leaving the service to find jobs in the IT sector as well as the junior workforce of technicians graduating from IT skills bootcamps and college programs.

I am also a proud Rotarian, Paul Harris fellow, big brother volunteer, and political party leader.  

Why dt?
