Andrew Benson

Project Manager & Information Security Strategist

I am a technology Project Manager and Information Security Strategist with entrepreneurial experience in the technology services space. A native of Wheeling, West Virginia, I am now based in San Francisco.

I use this personal site website to share my musings on technology, economics, and geopolitics as well as to share what I'm reading.


Presently, I am a Partner at Aurora Information Management (AIM), a privately held technology services firm specializing in information privacy and cyber security strategy consulting. Additionally, I am the founder of Benson Media, a Columbus, Ohio based application development firm. A more comprehensive list of what I've done is available here.

Education & Certifications

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a BSBA in Management Information Systems. As of Autumn 2018, I am taking graduate classes at Stanford University toward a Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security.

I currently hold a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute.


In addition to technology, economics, and geopolitics as the site's tagline suggests, my interests include law, public policy, computer programming, data modeling, and management sciences.

My reading list consists of a variety of journals, newspapers, magazines, academic publications, and books but my favorite periodicals are The Economist, Foreign Affairs, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, and MIT Sloan Management Review.
