Michael has been a security professional for over 20 years. He spent much of that at Hawaiian Electric upgrading physical and electronic security measures for critical infrastructure. Prior to that, he managed security teams of various sizes and complexity in the contract security world after serving in the US Army as an infantryman and military police officer.
Michael is passionate about solving complex problems, and is dedicated to improving the safety and security of all of Hawaii’s residents. On his off time, Michael volunteers as a peer mentor with the Wounded Warrior Project, and volunteers his time to assist The Mission Continues and Team Rubicon.
Michael enjoys anything high tech, including gaming, VR, and new security technologies, but you’ll also find him enjoying the great outdoors through fishing, hunting, and hiking whenever possible. Michael joined IST in 2020 and has been focusing on the company’s internal business systems, technology portfolio, and leadership.
New to the Security Industry, I joined the IST Team in August 2020 bringing with me over 15 years’ experience specializing in customer relations and a passion for helping people.
My interest in security and protecting people began during my time in the Army as a Military Police Officer. I have an analytic mind with a focus on creative thinking which enables me to see a multitude of possibilities in a short period of time.
Working with non-profit organizations and giving back to our local community is very important to me. You can find me volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Leeward and assisting with beach cleanups around the island.

I've been at IST since 2016. My job is happiness in the workplace. I'm sure I have more responsibilities like lizard hunting and snack eating, but hey I'm a dog.
I take my job very seriously. I'm pretty sure I'm the only thing holding this company together.
Andrew Lanning is the Co-Founder of Integrated Security Technologies (IST) and has been in the computer and electronics field since 1982. He earned a combat-action ribbon for duties performed in the Persian Gulf while serving as a missile technician for the United States Navy from 1985-1993.
Mr. Lanning sits on the BOD of the Hawaii Information, Communication and Technology Association (HICTA), The Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) Cybersecurity Advisory Council, the Security Industry Association (SIA) Cybersecurity Council, and he is Chairman of the PSA Network Cyber Security Committee.
He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Hawaii in 1993, and a Master in Communications from Hawaii Pacific University in 2011.
In May of 2016, I joined the IST team with no experience in the Security Industry, 1 year of MLM sales experience, and over 20 years of customer service and leadership & team building training experience. Essentially, I've been in the business of people and relationship management from a very young age. My grandparents had a heart for serving their community and passed it on to me. I spent most of my childhood and adolescent life attending leadership and team building trainings, workshops, conferences, and seminars. I spent much of my free time volunteering in the community and actively participating in leadership activities at school and church.
If you told me then, that everything I was learning and doing would eventually translate into me becoming a Healthcare Account Manager for a security contractor, I would've laughed in your face. To me security was always those guys you saw at the mall in the white and black uniform pretending to walk around and occasionally scolding you for being too loud. I had no idea what it was, much less how important it would eventually become to me, and the world.
I have since learned that my passion for serving others is best suited in this industry. An industry in which our customers rely on our knowledge and expertise to better safe guard the things that matter most to them. An industry in which security is often seen as an expense and not a necessity - a commodity rather than a valuable piece of the puzzle.
The best advice is always honest and whole. The best service is always selfless and filled with love. And the best people always want to do what's best for others.
When I came to the realization that I would not be taking my football talents to the professional level, I spent many nights thinking what I could do with the years of experience I had of knocking heads? After deep thought I came to a conclusion of what I really did in my years of playing, I protected my teammates.
This sparked an interest in what is now the beginning of my career in the world of security. After years of protecting my fellow brothers, I have now turned my talents to protecting others. It has always been a belief of mine the people deserve to be safe. I am extremely excited that I get to use my knowledge and past experience to do so.
Though this is only the beginning of my career in this industry, the life lessons that football has taught me will never leave my side. The heart, work ethic, and determination that lead to my success on the field will be put forth in this industry to give people the right they deserve, SAFETY.
