Threat Researcher, IBM
Scott Craig is a Threat Researcher for IBM's Managed Security Services. Scott has worked in the IT field for more than 20 years, 17 of which were dedicated to computer security. Before being dedicated to computer security, Scott's work as an enterprise Unix system administrator and a systems architect helped him to understand the way security fits into overall systems. Scott's unique ability to find patterns of interest in security device logs is what helped him become successful in his last role in IBM Managed Security Services as a team lead of the Data Intelligence group. In his role as an IBM Threat Researcher, Scott mines through millions of rows of data in search of stories worth sharing with others. Through these efforts, he hopes to improve every entity's data security which, in turn, helps every person who has a file about them somewhere.
