I am excited to announce that I have started working at Digital Bond. I have a bachelors degree in Computer Science from Southern Illinois University – Carbondale. Before joining Digital Bond I worked at the Tennessee Valley Authority for over 6 years. In that time I learned a lot about Control Systems Security.
While at TVA I worked as a Network Engineer that was performing routing and switching functions as well as security functions with firewalls and security tools. From there I moved into the security group where I was performing Incident Response, Monitoring, and Assessment functions. In the assessment role I served as subject matter expert for CIP 005-R4 and CIP 007-R8. I also performed security Assessments of control systems and corporate networks, and penetration testing. I used a range of open source and commercial products, such as Nessus/Security Center and Metapsloit.
In my spare time, I enjoy drone research topics as well as flying my quadcopters and finding new ways to use the technology that is coming out on the private drone industry. I hope to bring to Digital Bond my knowledge of both Control Systems environments and corporate environments to leverage techniques and new technologies to make Critical Infrastructures more secure.
