Shant Chakmakian has over 12 years of experience as an IT Professional, supporting small to large non-profit organizations, charities and membership associations. He is passionate about supporting his community by being a former board member of NAIT’s Board of Governors, as well as JCI Edmonton. He is currently an alumnus of the LEAD Student Award of Distinction and presents at NAIT’s technology events and mentors IT students and professionals. In 2012, Shant was awarded the First Timer’s Award at the JCI Canada National Conference.
Having extensive experience with small non-profit associations to large private enterprises, Shant realized that non-profit organizations, charities and membership associations face increasing risk from cyber security and privacy threats. In 2012 Shant founded SC Systems, Inc. to support, protect and empower these organizations in realizing their mission by connecting them to harmonious technology.
Shant is a 3 time NAIT graduate from Network Engineering, Computer Network Administration, and BAIST focusing on network management. He is also a Cisco Certified Design Associate, trained and experienced in Fortinet firewall security, antispam, wireless and networking programs.
When he’s not being a technology nerd, or volunteering in the community, he enjoys staying active by going for hikes, climbing mountains and occasionally wrestling grizzly bears.
We empower these public organizations by protecting and managing their information technology needs with industry-leading partners and tools.
