In a video interview at RSA Conference 2016, Baker discusses:

  • His new role as a practitioner;
  • How his past experience now pays off;
  • The evolution of the information security field - and what that growth means.

Baker believes improving information security starts with improving security information. In keeping with this belief, he's working to complete his doctoral thesis, "Toward a Decision Support System for Managing Information Risk in Supply Chains." Before joining ThreatConnect, he served as director of cybersecurity strategy and research at Verizon Security Solutions, where he led the overall direction of security services, technology capabilities, intelligence operations and research programs. Baker spearheaded Verizon's annual Data Breach Investigations Report, the Vocabulary for Event Recording and Incident Sharing and the VERIS Community Database.
