About Sammy

My name is Sammy Basu. I’ve worked for many reputable Fortune 100 companies for the last two decades. In January of 2020, I decided to take the plunge and founded Careful Security to help small businesses in America deal with the ever-increasing threat of constant Cyber Attacks. And then the Pandemic hit and changed our lives forever. Cybercriminals started spawning up bogus sites and distributing malicious links to hack into unsuspecting small business owners who were clearly not prepared with the challenges of working from home. Helping such honest, hardworking people has given me much more satisfaction and a sense of purpose that can sometimes go missing in the corporate world. Since late last year, I’ve ventured into the world of education, teaching cybersecurity to motivated students hungry to launch a career in cybersecurity. I pepper my classes with real-life scenarios and training modules to help build practical skills that can be applied from day one. It has been a very fulfilling journey so far. I hope you can join me someday in making this world a safer place for the next generation.

“Oh, hello. Didn’t see you there. My name is Bryan Roberts and my cybersecurity journey sprang from the fact that I don’t like playing online video games with cheaters. My analytical mind cannot process such a thing, and I had no idea how to deal with it until I received a lung transplant to treat a lifelong chronic illness. Once I was healthy enough to “fight back” I earned a legion of cybersecurity certifications and received a comprehensive cybersecurity education. I found out that I couldn’t do much about the cheaters, but I’m still a nerd who loves spreading the good word of technology to those who thirst for knowledge. I am now proud to be Careful Security’s vice president of making cybersecurity relatable, much like your cool aunt (not your judgy uncle).”

Laci Betts : COO

Laci Betts
As an organizational guru, I create calm out of chaos, momentum out of mystery, and my project plans are the stuff of legend.  As a casual tech freak, I love to test-drive new technology. I am also an advocate for justice and fairness. My passion for both led me to my interest in cybersecurity. Technology should be safe and secure for everyone to use and enjoy! Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, I do not own an umbrella, but I AM a coffee aficionado! I am an enduring advocate for humanity and think we can achieve more together than apart. In my free time, I enjoy binge-watching anything with subtitles and planning my next road trip.

Sammy Basu : CEO


I loved playing soccer, played it every opportunity I could, and just before I was about to start college, I fractured my knee while playing. I spent a month and a half in bed, during which I read all of the Sherlock Holmes novels. I just loved them! I discovered I had a natural affinity for mysteries and discovering the hidden path. When I later discovered cybersecurity, it was like being in a real-life mystery novel, hunting down the clues and trying to solve the case. So, I know it’s cliché, but in my life when one door closed and an entire career opened.
