Global cybersecurity education and services company, EC-Council, today announced the appointment of Tim Rosenberg, a well renowned cyber gamification expert, as the Executive Director of EC-Council Research.
“Over the past few years, through research, we have established a strong, educated opinion on what is really needed in the market going forward. One honest realization we came to is that this is not a project or a part-time effort. To truly succeed this will take a full-time effort and significant experience in this field.” says Steve Graham, Senior Vice President at EC-Council (North America).
Tim will focus on ensuring that the organization’s strategic and operational plans for research and knowledge exchange are amplified globally.
Tim was the Associate Research Professor at the George Washington University where he taught Information Warfare and Computer Security courses as well as an Adjunct for Georgetown University’s Security Studies Program. He designed, built, and delivered every aspect of cyber exercises including a comprehensive scoring engine capable of scoring offense and defense players across multiple exercises. This exercise experience included some of the first integrations of SCADA, VoIP, IPv6, and custom hardware into the event ranges.
“I look forward to creating a massive impact in the cyber profession through EC-Council,” says Tim Rosenberg, “While working with Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and White Wolf Security we innovated a lot, made a lot of mistakes, and did a lot of things. I hope to be able to take that learning and establish a strong strategic plan for EC-Council.”
Tim also uses his love of tech education and travel to support charity work at Hackers for Charity and Beyond the Mountain. Through these two charities, he has traveled to Jinja, Uganda, and the Solukhumbu District of Nepal helping to build tech-driven educational solutions to remote and austere environments.
