Cisco Talos
Threat Researcher
Earl Carter has always had a passion for solving puzzles and
understanding how things operate. Mr Carter quickly learned that
identifying security weaknesses is just like solving puzzles. Over 20
years ago, he was introduced to network security when he accepted a
position at the Airforce Information Warfare center in San Antonio,
Texas. In 1998, Mr Carter starting working Cisco and became one of the
founding members on the Security Technology Assessment Team (STAT).
After spending 15 years identifying new security threats and assisting
product teams in hardening their devices and software to mitigate those
identified security threats, Mr Carter became a Threat Researcher for
Cisco Talos. Now he spends his time hunting for new threats against live
customer networks by examining various intelligence feeds and data
sources. Among Mr Carter’s significant contributions to Cisco are
multiple security patents and authoring three Cisco Press Security Books.
