With over 23 years of management consulting experience, Ernie Anderson is a cybersecurity executive with a proven track record of working collaboratively with CISOs and CIOs across different industries.

Ernie's technical expertise allows him to translate strategic vision into effective tactical solutions.  He is a founding partner of TBDCyber.​

Prior to starting TBDCyber, Ernie was the Chief Services Officer for a global cybersecurity company. He transformed the Services business from a traditional value-added-reseller professional services organization to a consulting advisory practice, growing revenue 2x year over year and pulling a spiraling, money-losing unit into a profitable and flourishing business.​

He also built and ran large-scale data security programs for multiple global retail companies.  ​

In his spare time, he enjoys running (in 2023, he ran a marathon a month for a year), skiing, boating, bbq/smoking, and spending time with his wife and two young kids.
