Gary Forbes  M.Sc. I.S.M (Founder and Senior I.T consultant)

Hi, my name is Gary Forbes and I am the founder and Principal IT consultant at Security and Virtualization - Information Technology Consulting (SAV-IT) pronounced “Save I.T”. I strongly believe that businesses need to place greater emphasis on the security of data collected from clients in the course of doing business. My experience in the world of IT spans several decades, with experience ranging from healthcare, hospitality, education, manufacturing, non-profit, and managed services. In addition to starting SAV-IT within the last two years, I also completed my Master’s degree in Information Systems Management.

My family is originally from the Caribbean (Trinidad and Tobago) and we are first generation Canadians. We live in Mississauga and apart from my passion for technology, I am a lifelong learner, reader, DIYer, gardener, and love to make my own blend of hot sauces. In addition to studying for my Master’s degree degree over the last two years, I also read over 200 novels from authors that included James Patterson, James Axler, Kyle Mills, and Janet Evanovich. From the non-fiction books that I read, the most prominent one was by Noor Hibbert called “Just F***ing Do It!” which along with family support gave me the courage to venture into opening SAV-IT Consulting.

My current professional development is a Certificate program from Ryerson University on Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. My gardening hobbies include growing cucumbers for pickling, hot peppers for special blends of hot sauces, watermelons, herbs, and other fruits and vegetables, and tulips.
