Craig Williams has always had a passion for learning how things operate and circumvent security measures. His deep interest in security technology led to a career at Cisco, which began with research into vulnerabilities, threats and network detection techniques. His research over the past decade has included running the Cisco malware lab and trying to outwit the very security products he has helped Cisco to design. As Director of the Talos Outreach team, Williams helps to guide some of the most experienced and knowledgeable threat researchers and analysts at Cisco—and in the industry.
