Led by a lifetime of experiences, Robert and Heather Rodriguez have created an organization that provides a dynamic environment for the advancement of Cybersecurity innovation.   They gain tremendous satisfaction when they see the introductions and relationships enabled during SINET events, dinners and workshops create the foundation for next generation security solutions.

Their backgrounds are uniquely suited to create a special community of security professionals.  Prior to founding SINET, Robert spent over twenty-two years as a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service where he held a number of leadership roles within Executive Protection, Protective Intelligence and Criminal Investigations, including the creation of the first Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force on the West Coast.  As a Board member for high profile organizations including the SF Child Abuse Prevention Center, San Francisco Opera Guild and on the Board of Regents for Saint Mary’s College, Heather has gained the operational experience required to guide SINET to international prominence.

The worldwide success of SINET underscores that Cybersecurity is not only important to them, but it is equally vital to global security and worldwide economic interests.
