Safety and security have been the dominant themes of Jim Cox’s career, which includes military service (he retired as a Army Command Sergeant Major), law enforcement and security for data centers. The last ultimately led Jim to add cybersecurity to his portfolio of security expertise.
Cox’s company, Adam 21 Consulting, brings all of these experiences to bear with expertise in enterprise risk, physical security, emergency management, information technology, and strategic planning. Even the name itself has a security meaning: “Adam 21” was Cox’s call sign in Special Ops, where he served on SWAT, protected dignitaries, and provided physical security at special events.
Long active in Frederick’s tech scene, Jim did not hesitate to sign on as a FITCI client, recognizing that connectivity and engagement with peers and advisors would be crucial to the development of his business. When he is not busy building Adam 21 Consulting, Jim has varied extra-curricular pursuits. He provides motorcycle safety and security for large events such as triathlons, and enjoys travel and camping in his RV. But perhaps Jim’s most unexpected extracurricular is dancing with the Inwood, WV Performing Arts Company; most recently, he performed in the opening scenes of the “The Nutcracker Suite.” Presumably, this keeps Jim on his toes!
