My research project

I’ve tossed my hat into the ring to be a speaker at TEDx Greenville on April 7th. My big idea is that cyber security isn’t a technology problem, it’s a behavioral science one. 

I have personally seen how elegant security deployments with air tight processes and procedures based off of intelligent and well thought through policies are compromised by that truly disruptive force, the human. We have gotten great at defending our environments at the enterprise level. So good, in fact, that the primary threat CSOs need to look at isn’t the bad guy from outside, but the threat from within. 

During the next few months I’ll be connecting with and talking to the best and brightest in the cyber security and behavioral science fields to build a bigger picture. If you are one of those people, or can provide an introduction, please let me know!
