  • "Jack is a senior seasoned information security professional with broad technical skills in many aspects of security ranging from application to infrastructure security. Articulate and well-spoken, Jack is equally effective with management as well as technical personnel. I have found Jack to be of the highest moral character as well as ethically centered. Jack offers an excellent balance of analytical, architectural, and implementation knowledge. Jack is one of the few people that I have worked with in my career that I would provide a personal recommendation."

  • "I've worked with Jack on multiple security consulting engagements over the years and am amazed at how quickly he can pick up new technology. Jack has a wealth of knowledge and is able to deliver top notch solutions with ease. In addition to Jack's vast knowledge he possesses impeccable integrity - always looking to do the right thing without compromise. Jack is an asset any team or company should be proud to have on board."

  • "Jack is very adept in the Technical Security arena. Regardless of project and the technical requirements, Jack is able to quickly master the requirements and provide quality security engineering for the client. Jack is an asset for any team."

  • "I had the pleasure of working with Jack on a security project in New York, December 2007. I found him to be smart, professional and equally he is laid back and fun to be with. I was regrettably only with him physically in the same room working for a single week, although since then we have not lost contact because he is an easy person to e-communicate with, and is comfortable with sharing his knowledge. Jack is one of my valued security network within HP. He has my respect both professionally and on a personal level, hence I would be delighted to work with Jack again as a team member or pull him into any security project that I happen to be leading."

  • "Jack's the kind of guy who makes me think "Heck, I'm *really* glad he's on my side!". Knows his subject so well that he leaves me in awe, but he doesn't hesitate to share what he knows with others and does so in a fashion that is both highly comprehensible and completely devoid of any taint of talking down to us mere mortals. Loved working with him and would do so again in a heartbeat. And I'll re-state things slightly: I'm REALLY glad Jack is on the side of the good guys! "

  • "I worked together with Jack on an important assessment HP was doing for a client in the North East. Jack is a detailed oriented security professional. We had a very tight timeline to deliver to this client with a very small team of folks to deliver. Jack went above and beyond to assist in creating an exceptional deliverable for this client. He spent many hours at night doing research so the team had accurate information to present in the assessment. The client was very pleased with what we presented. I would gladly work with Jack anytime."

  • "At HP Americas, I joined a security assessment project on which Jack Maynard was the technical lead. I was immediately impressed with his diligence in documenting the discovery process. As this long-term project progressed his leadership and seriousness regarding the customer's needs set the pace for all members on the team. Technically excellent, big-picture/detail-oriented, high-integrity and a great teammate with a sense of humor, Jack is someone I would seek out for any job with a technical or security component."
