Leadership Team

Trevor Goering

CEO & Co-Founder

  • Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
  • SANS Institute Certified Hacker
  • Forensics Investigator and Incident Response Specialist

Trevor has few peers when it comes to his 20 years of experience in cyber security at the highest levels – developing and executing Risk Management Frameworks (RMF’s) in accordance with NIST and ISO standards for Citibank, Amgen, Amtrak, Department of Transportation, Department of Defense, and Department of Nuclear Energy. In addition to large-scale projects, Trevor has created processes to protect data for numerous fast-growing startups and small businesses as well as contained and investigated many security breaches.

When he’s not battling evil hackers, Trevor takes the time to help others with their careers by supporting and mentoring fellow entrepreneurs and technologists. In his free time, he likes to watch a basketball game or movie while sipping a peaty scotch.

Blake Shalem

COO & Co-Founder

Blake’s primary responsibility is to keep the company running smoothly by making sure everyone on the team is organized and optimized to deliver results. With more than ten years of experience with leadership roles account and project management in cyber security, Blake is an expert communicator who is able to bridge both technical and non-technical people – everyone understands and is comfortable with the decisions being made.

Prior to joining Gotham Security, she served as the director of sales at TopPatch, Inc. as well as account and security sales management positions at Computer Network Solutions, CGAtlantic, Citigroup Smith Barney and Smith Barney.

When she is not protecting clients from cyber crime, you can find Blake looking for a moment of zen by practicing yoga or drinking a glass of Italian red.
