Mary ChaneyClass of 1994
Mary Chaney is one woman who knows her field well—she has over 10 years of information security and legal experience. After she graduated from Xavier with her B.S.B.A in Information Systems, she then went on to receive her J.D. degree from Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law and is a licensed attorney in the state of Texas.
Mary spent several years practicing law in Washington, D.C., focusing primarily on anti-trust and intellectual property rights. She then transitioned to serve her country by becoming a Special Agent for the FBI. With the FBI in Los Angeles, she investigated all types of cyber related criminal activities and also served as the Information Systems Security Officer (ISSO).
In 2008, Mary obtained her Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification and opened MBS Information Security Consulting, LLC (MBS) shortly thereafter with the ambition of using all of her experience and knowledge to assist businesses with their information security needs. MBS is in the business of supplying information security services to small and midsized companies. Their charge is to bring affordable information security solutions to businesses that cannot afford a dedicated staff resource.
