Mike Arbrouet - Board
When he is not fathering or husbanding, Mike Arbrouet is on a mission to help bridge the cybersecurity skills gap on a global scale.

Toward that end, he co-founded Haiti Cyber Con, a non-profit that is on the frontline working with the disadvantage youth in that country, providing them with access to hacking workshops, effective mentorship and the tools needed to accelerate their careers in STEM. It is all being organized here on the CyberCoast.

Prior to founding Haiti Cyber Con, Mike, and his brother Blaise, founded YottaSec, an information security consulting company located in the US and Canada. YottaSec specializes in strategic risk management, security program management, remediation/optimization and training, security governance, threat hunting, program assessment and compliance.

Most recently, Mike joined the Infragard North Florida Chapter, headquartered in Tallahassee, as its vice president. In this role, Mike represents the chapter from Pensacola to Panama City, enforcing the effective partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the CyberCoast private sector through seamless collaboration for the protection of the U.S Critical Infrastructure. Selected Fellow for both ARIN and ICAAN, Mike is multilingual, holds multiple cybersecurity certifications, and is currently completing a master’s degree in Cybersecurity at the University of West Florida.
