The only person to make more than 10 consecutive appearances at FloCon, Tim Shimeall is a Senior Network Situational Awareness Analyst for the CERT Division of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). Shimeall develops methods to support decision making in network security at and above the enterprise level, including identification of useful data collection. Of particular interest are methods that affect defended systems and malicious software that are effective despite common defenses. Shimeall’s work is highly empirical and often involves application of formal methods to practical problems facing network security and operational personnel. Shimeall earned a PhD from the University of California, Irvine. He has subsequently published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles, an information security textbook, and numerous technical reports and notes.
