The Triangle Cyber Story
Triangle Cyber, LLC was founded by Jim Matthews in 2022. Jim was raised in a military family that proudly served in nearly every branch of the Armed services. One of his uncles was KIA/MIA during the Korean War, which had a profound impact on Jim and his family. Unable to join the military due to a hearing loss, he obtained his degree in electrical engineering and dedicated his career to DoD/Federal civilian service followed by Raytheon Technologies, where he quickly rose to Engineering Fellow supporting major Missile Defense, US Navy, and DHS CISA programs. Recognizing that the “cyber battle” continues to quickly evolve and leveraging his passion for technology, automation, and innovative solutions, Jim established the Triangle Cyber team to develop advanced automated cybersecurity solutions for Triangle Cyber’s Managed Security Service.
Jim Matthews is the Founder and President/CEO of Triangle Cyber located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Jim is an Electrical Engineer and former Raytheon Engineering Fellow with over 30 years of engineering and operations experience in information technology, networks, cybersecurity, system hardening, and risk/vulnerability assessments. He supported multiple DoD and Federal programs, including US Navy, Missile Defense Agency (MDA), and Dept of Homeland Security/Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS/CISA). He led highly talented engineering teams that developed a number of mission-critical capabilities, including a global network of command & control and sensors for missile defense, a geographically distributed intrusion detection system with automated large-scale analytic capabilities, and a variety of NOC/SOC capabilities. Jim, a strong advocate of agile methodologies, is also a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Program Consultant (SPC) and teaches SAFe certification courses. He currently serves as Chief Architect for a major DHS/CISA cybersecurity program.
Jim and his wife Michelle live in Raleigh, NC and have a son, daughter, and two grandsons.
