I had Carl speak to my Tax Professionals group in the ProVisors network in Los Angeles in July 2023 on the FTC Safeguards Rule and Data Privacy for CPAs. It was one of the most engaging presentations our group has ever sponsored. The audience participation was much greater than expected and I allowed the presentation to go long to accommodate the interest of all the attendees. Many of them requested the slide deck afterward which Carl was happy to oblige. His understanding of the subject matter was eclipsed by his ability to explain complex material in layman’s terms for all to understand. Carl exceeded expectations and I will certainly put him on our docket for another meeting later this year.

It has been a privilege to work with Carl as an instructor. We were first introduced because I sought a cyber security expert to join my class. He is incredibly knowledgeable and relatable. He presents the content in a clear, logical manner and creates engagement with the students. I was so impressed with Carl that I have recommended him to other schools that could benefit from his expertise.

We really enjoyed having Carl present at NYCLA. I thought your presentation was great and in fact you received all EXCELLENT ratings from our attendees. Most impressive of all was the number of questions that you received. People were REALLY paying attention to the program, as I find that many times we don’t get a lot of questions at Webinars as we did when we had more live events.

Carl’s cybersecurity classes are among our most highly rated classes. Carl breaks down complicated material into understandable components, and connects easily with our students. He is also a fantastic colleague, having led train-the-trainer sessions for our faculty. He’s been a wonderful addition to our instructor community, and he brings much-needed expertise in a critical area of knowledge.

Carl - Provides an in-depth understanding while speaking in a language we can all understand. The program helped identify the most common pitfalls for cybersecurity and data breaches that I was vulnerable to for my practice and suggested simple solutions for protection. Essential for remaining compliant with obligations we hold for keeping our client’s information secure.

Carl and A2Z were my cybersecurity company for several years before I retired my brand. The experience was stellar in every aspect of business- professionalism, communication, and, of course, high-level expertise in keeping my sensitive information safe throughout multiple hacking attempts. Anyone who hires Carl and A2Z is in great hands.

The webinars that Carl hosts are excellent. Cybersecurity must be at the forefront of any company's business plan, and Carl possesses a remarkable ability to simplify complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand while also providing attendees with takeaways that they can apply to their enterprises.
