Rich Connor I began my career as a police officer in New Jersey in the early 2000s. I was assigned a patrol car, and my day-to-day was performing traffic stops, responding to domestic violence disputes, attending medical emergencies, and investigating crashes. I loved working with people - educating how to prevent break-ins, analyzing patterns of criminal activity, and following up on incidents to build long-term solutions. I wanted to expand beyond the small-town setting, so I went back to school to learn how to impact a larger community. I decided to take a quantitative approach to expanding my capabilities of helping people - I studied Applied Mathematics learning about how Math is used for cancer treatment, regulating traffic flow, and protecting sensitive data via cryptography. I decided to share how useful these applications are by teaching it to others - from elementary school to graduate school students. During this tenure, I continued performing analyses of data - this time investigating the connection between success in Math courses to success in application to Science courses. As I continued my research and analyses, I learned about many companies having issues with access loss and data exposure - big companies like Yahoo, Linkedin, and even the NSA. I decided to apply my various experience and abilities to helping companies fight against these growing issues. I went big by working with Comcast’s network security team, finding patterns in their threat intelligence data and advising action to take in response to the discovered trends. I was then called on by a company out in Louisville, KY to help them find value in one of the largest datasets I ever worked with - the federal government needed help uncovering vulnerabilities in their employee data. After a successful set of discoveries and an ongoing contract was secured, I moved on to helping other companies threat and vulnerability patterns, design business continuity plans, tailor system security plans, and build custom cybersecurity products.
