Bill Thousand has been working in the IT industry for over 25 years. Bill started writing software on his C64 at the age of 12 and by high school was providing computer help and programming small projects for nearby businesses. In the early 1990s, he was a partner in Professional Computer Solutions, Inc., which grew to
one of the biggest Microsoft Dynamics partners in the Midwest. During that time, he obtained his Novell CNE, Microsoft MCSE and a variety of other industry certifications. Wanting to focus more on IT support and custom development, Bill founded Clarity Technology Group, Inc. in 1999 and has been providing IT support services, IT security consulting and web applications development ever since.
Bill is both an experienced programmer and an IT support engineer, and as such is uniquely qualified to provide security consulting services. Understanding both technology as well as how the hacker’s mind works provides a much broader view of the issues and risks.
Bill’s philosophy on providing IT support is that you need to really understand your customer’s needs before you can help them. He trains his staff to ask questions and pay attention. “Before you can build a solution, you need to know why you’re building it, who will be using it, when they will be using it and how they will be using it.” Bill’s goal is to create a long-term trust with his clients that can only be obtained by really understanding what they are trying to accomplish.
When not working in the IT world, Bill spends much of his free time in ice rinks all over the country watching his three kids play hockey.
