Ryan Hawkins is an Integration Developer at Ameren with over 15 years of experience in the IT industry. After receiving his first MacBook in 2003, technology grew to become a huge part of Ryan's life. While in high school, Ryan attended Unitec Career Center where he took two years of electronics technology instruction. It was during that educational experience that Ryan knew his passion for technology is what would drive his career. In 2009, he graduated from CMU with a BS in Computer Science and quickly captured his first job as an IT Specialist at The Apple Store located inside the Saint Louis Galleria Mall. He wasted no time familiarizing himself with the hardware and software of many Apple products, and as the IoT industry grew, his love for the products as services grew with it. Ryan enjoys developing new ways to utilize the different types of products and services offered in today's world, however, he also enjoys learning and understanding the concerns with customer privacy. As more and more products in our lives are connected to the internet, the concern with cybersecurity grows. Ryan's goal is to help new and existing customers who use loT devices to understand the core relationships associated with those devices; to understand the positive ways these devices can impact our lives; and, to teach customers how to identify threats and protect themselves from potential cyber attacks.
