I recommend him for any IT-related position he qualifies for, first and foremost because of his loyalty.
Bob Fabien Zinga is one of the few people I know whom I can speak accurately and consistently of concerning his professionalism and his personality. I know him very well, not only as a friend and co-worker, but as his wife. Therefore, I am aware of the many attributes of his personality, and can shed some light into the person that he is.
I recommend him for any IT-related position he qualifies for, first and foremost because of his loyalty. Bob has proven to be trustworthy in many positions in his life. He is dependable and consistent. If any problem arises, he is immediately on task as he solves numerous problems on a daily basis, helping to boost the bottom line for his department. On one occasion, during a network related crisis, I’ve witnessed him contacting his work team members by cell phone and by email as he and our family were on vacation one weekend. He worked speedily and consistently, reaching out to each contact, guiding his employees, and informing each department to be notified, until the problem was resolved over the phone within thirty minutes.
He has my most strongest confidence and trust to accomplish and achieve results.
BZ is my favorite Navy Officer since he was an Ensign. He has always had the nicest sense of personal honor trimmed with humility and great respect. He has my most strongest confidence and trust to accomplish and achieve the results for his personnel that you would want.
CDR Bob “BZ” Zinga, a transformational global military leader!
It is with great pleasure that I recommend CDR Bob “BZ” Zinga, a transformational global military leader. I first met BZ when he was a Junior Officer in my reserve unit, NR COMPACFLT INTEL 0419. Then LCDR BZ quickly took charge of a 37-member unit and led by example, always taking care of his troop. Under his leadership, the unit became the most award-winning unit in the COMPACFLT Enterprise and excelled in the trifecta of operation support, training, and administration. I was not surprised when BZ was selected as the 2019 COMNAVIFORES Junior Officer of the Year, #1 of over 2,000 Junior Information Warfare Officers across America and the world. It was my joy to see him realize his lifetime dream of promoting to the Senior Officer rank of Commander this past April. A promotion that was timely and well deserved, Bravo Zulu! I highly recommend CDR BZ for any position he applies for. He is not only tech-savvy and business-minded, but he is also an uncommon leader who always focuses on accomplishing the mission and the welfare of his team members.

Bob gave me the encouragement and tools to grow further and faster.
Bob is a Leader. He’s a leader not only in the United States Navy or in CyberSecurity, but among all of those around him. He’s also a great mentor, who was kind enough to set aside some time in his busy schedule to share some wisdom with me. Bob imparted to me the importance of persistence, hard work, and taking action. He stressed the value of being open-minded and adding value by doing the work that needs to be done. Bob gave me the encouragement and tools to grow further and faster, and I’m thankful for that. If you ever get a chance to speak with or work with Bob, I have no doubt that he’ll be there to lend a hand to lift you up. It’s been a year, but I didn’t forget the words you shared.

CDR Zinga, is a true leader in every definition the word leader has, I’m honored and glad to be under his leadership and guidance. A year ago when I spoke with him about joining the Naval Officers Reserve Information Professional program, he took the time to offer and speak with me on the phone without prior introduction between the two of us. Explained to me everything about being an IP Officer in the greatest Navy in the world. CDR Zinga didn’t only stop at that, he kept in contact with me and answered all my questions through out the whole process, made me feel like we know each other personally.
When I got selected as Information Professional Officer O3, he was happy for me as much I was and he even started introducing me to other IP Officers to connect and share knowledge.
I’m honored and privileged to be serving under and alongside of CDR Zinga, he’s a real treasure to our great country and our Navy. Thank you Sir.
Bob is an exceptional and outstanding fellow naval officer and cybersecurity leader and executive.
Bob is an exceptional and outstanding fellow naval officer and cybersecurity leader and executive. He is an effective communicator, expert in his field of cybersecurity and risk management and has demonstrated his ability to lead teams implementing and managing complex DoD /civilian complex cybersecurity programs. I highly recommend Bob and I know he will be an awesome leader for any organization where an outstanding, passionate and highly motivated CISO is needed.
Bob was conscientious, dedicated and demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and integrity throughout the time I was there.
To whom it may concern,
I worked with Bob for a couple of years while we designed and implemented a new network and data center at Defense Language Institute, Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC). As the Director of Cyber Security, Bob was instrumental in defining security posture, response, and strategy policies. My team and I worked in conjunction with him and his team to define security boundaries, author security and response policies and implement a system that would provide a high level of security and much needed flexibility for DLIFLC.
Overall, Bob was conscientious, dedicated and demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and integrity throughout the time I was there.
I wish Bob all the best and look forward to the opportunity to work with him again should our careers cross paths again.
Bob is detail oriented, precise and professional in every respect.
Bob Zinga worked for me at Pivotal Software for more than two years. He was instrumental in developing a Information security program that fit the culture of a fast moving pre-IPO company. Bob is detail oriented, precise and professional in every respect. His extensive education and professional experience in Information Security give me a broad view of implementing security in varied environments. As a Lt Cmdr. in the US Navy, Bob has demonstrated leadership, patriotism and honor in securing the systems that protect our country. In the private sector, Bob has shown the ability to adapt Information Security to protect companies from the threats that matter to the business, rather than just quoting best practices. I am proud to call him a friend and would recommend him to any firm searching for a leader in Information Security.
Bob is an intellectual heavyweight.
Bob is an intellectual heavyweight that served as the Deputy Program Manager for me when I was the Program Manager for the Computer Network Defense (CND) Program. Bob knows CND as his many certifications and years of experience served him well as the Deputy!
Bob stands out from a crowd that is already accomplished. He is among the rare few that I would want on my team for any challenging project.
Bob stands out from a crowd that is already accomplished. He is among the rare few that I would want on my team for any challenging project. His quest for continuous personal growth and improvement, combined with a strong send of duty and initiative are ingredients for success in any organization. His humble temperament ensures that he fits well with any team. Bob has been able to deftly manage competing demands, balancing his civilian career, Navy Reserve, personal growth and family. Few individuals have been able to do this successfully. I have the highest confidence in Bob and would be fortunate to have him as a member of my team.
His determination, motivation, intelligence and integrity was evident at such a young age. He possessed a wisdom that belied his age.
I knew Fabien in Congo when he was preparing to come to study in the USA. I tutored him in preparing for his TOEFL. He was still quite young at the time but his determination, motivation, intelligence and integrity was evident at such a young age. He possessed a wisdom that belied his age. He graduated High School early with Honors and commenced his education at UA exceeding at every level of his education. Consequently, I am not at all surprised when I read his accolades and see his successes. Therefore; it is not only an honor but a privilege to recommend Fabien for any position he applies for. He will be an asset in your organization. Rhonda Wison-Dikoko CSM

What really stands out about Bob is how he uses various resources to support/highlight the salient points in his guidance.
I connected with Bob via the Veterati digital mentorship platform last month – an obvious choice given his accomplishments in the community. He was eager to mentor a transitioning service member and provided some great advice. What really stands out about Bob is how he uses various resources to support/highlight the salient points in his guidance, i.e. context and examples from industry standard sources. This really helped me to connect the dots in our conversations. Many thanks to Bob for his time and tutelage.

I learned so much from him when I started – not just from a technical standpoint, but from a management perspective as well.
I had the privilege of working with Bob Zinga when I started my first Information Security position in 2017. I feel extremely fortunate to have worked with Bob, who was my supervisor, and now consider him a mentor. I learned so much from him when I started – not just from a technical standpoint, but from a management perspective as well. He is a true leader in every sense of the word. He takes pride in everything he does – he is ethical, hard working, and truly wants to make the world a better place.
Bob is extremely knowledgeable in all things technical and security related. He has the ability to convey information from the most technical individuals to the those with little or no technical background. He is extremely generous in sharing his knowledge, and enjoys teaching (and learning) from others.
Bob had excellent customer service skills, and had good rapport with all of our customers. He is dedicated and hardworking, and can always be relied upon. I look forward to working with Bob again in the future.
