Guest Interview: Kimberly Crawley
Bio: Kimberly Crawley
I'm an information security researcher with InfoSec Institute. My articles on a wide variety of security matters are published in Computerworld, CIO magazine, and CSO magazine. I also have an article coming out in 2600 magazine soon.
I got into computing at a very early age. When I was eight, I managed to edit autoexec.bat on my father's Windows 3.0 machine, when he complained about the OS taking too long to boot. I was on the web since 1993, at age nine. From there, I taught myself web development.
After many years of working in general tier two PC tech support in my 20s, I found a large percentage of my tickets were related to security problems. I started studying malware, OS hardening, and TCP/IP hardening with a vengeance.
I started to get gigs to fix security problems for small businesses with data centers. My reputation took off from there, and then I started to write about information security for a living.
I have a special interest in malware and cyberwarfare.
In my spare time, I love video games, anime, jazz, and Japanese food. I live in Toronto with my husband Sean Rooney, who used to have his own cyber security firm.
