President of External IT and Savid Technologies | Author and Professional Speaker on IT Strategy,Leadership, IT Security
Introduction
Over the years, Michael A. Davis has earned a reputation as one of the nation's leading authorities on information technology. The list of organizations that rely on his council includes AT&T, Sears, Exelon, the US Department of Defense, and Discover Financial.

Mr. Davis is President of External IT, a national managed IT services, cloud services, and IT security provider that focuses on unifying the business IT experience. 

In 2005, Mr. Davis founded Savid Technologies, an IT security consulting firm. He led Savid to be the 23rd fastest growing company in Chicago as measured by Inc. magazine, and by 2010, Savid was ranked 611 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in America. 

As an entrepreneur he was voted one of the “Top 25 under 25” by BusinessWeek, semi-finalist of the Ernst and Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” award, and a “Web 2.0 Wonderkid” for his online marketing capabilities. In 2012, Savid was acquired by External IT.

Mr. Davis is an author of the No. 1 computer security book in the world, Hacking Exposed, as well as Hacking Exposed: Malware and Rootkits, and he is a frequent contributor to industry and business publications including InformationWeek and The Wall Street Journal. 

Much of his time is spent lecturing, and conferences and conventions that know him well include Black Hat, Interop, SuperStrategies, and InfoSecWorld. 

The phrase "I can't" is the most powerful force of negation in the human psyche. When done properly, IT enables the business to say "we can".
