Along with authoring for Pluralsight, consulting, and IT classroom training, you can catch Dale on stage speaking at IT conferences, helping IT teams keep their companies safe, relevant, and "breach" aware. Outside of the professional sphere, Dale spends quite a bit of his time giving back by speaking at adult and youth non-profit community gatherings and posting on his 'Dale Dumbs IT Down' social media sites. Dale uses these speaking engagements and social media sites to 'Dumb Down IT' concepts with the intent to help everyone be safe and smart with their technology and personal devices.
