Ken Kousky's years of experience as both an educator and an entrepreneur (recipient of Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year award) are reflected in his business and professional accomplishments. Ken is a visionary in the computing technology, education and marketing industry with three successful start-ups, two major mergers and an IPO under his belt. He received his Master's degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1978. He also holds a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Urban Studies from Washington University.

IP3's flagship seminar series, Strategy to Reality, began in 2002 when the company started providing educational forums requested by industry – new technologies were not understood and the necessary foundations for their effective management were not addressed in any of the traditional educational venues. Strategy to Reality is now one of the world’s leading executive and management forums, and is hosted by 20 of the nation’s leading universities, many of them NSA Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Professional associations such as InfraGard, HTCIA, ASIS, ISSA & ISACA provide local sponsorship and support for the seminar series.
