Walsh IT Faculty Co-Author "The Force of Technology"

Walsh College has announced the publication of “The Force of Technology,” a book co-authored by information technology/decision sciences (ITDS) faculty Dave Schippers, DSc, CISSP, Michael Simko, DSc, CISSP and Terri Richards, Ph.D. and edited by Jennifer O’Meara, Ph.D., associate professor, business communication. “The Force of Technology” examines the importance of understanding technology operations and protections in business and offers attainable strategies for designing, leading and managing cyber risk mitigation in any organization up to the enterprise level. Published by Iron Dog LLC, “The Force of Technology” is available for purchase on Amazon and is being used in Walsh’s Master of Business Administration (MBA), Cyber MBA and Master of Science in Information Technology Leadership curriculum.

“We live in a connected age and those interconnections, while convenient, can pose serious threats to organizations’ security, data and our way of life. ‘The Force of Technology’ is a playbook for business leaders, whether they have a technical background or not, to level up their understanding of technology and learn to lead critical cyber risk mitigation in their organizations,” said Schippers.

Schippers serves as chair of Walsh’s ITDS department and has decades of experience in IT, cybersecurity and project management. He also holds a professional investigator license in Michigan. Simko has experience as a cybersecurity architect and manager and currently works as a deputy director of IT in addition to teaching at Walsh. Richards has more than 20 years of IT industry experience in a range of roles including leading teams of developers in Michigan and India.

All proceeds from the “The Force of Technology” will be donated to the Lesia Mahon Scholarship Fund, named for the late Walsh IT professor.
