About Gary C. Kessler
About Gary C. Kessler
Gary C. Kessler is an independent consultant and practitioner in the areas of computer and network forensics, mobile device forensics, computer and network security, TCP/IP and the Internet, and communications protocols and standards. He is also an Associate Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL, where he teaches cybersecurity in the Homeland Security program. In addition, Gary is an adjunct associate professor at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia, a member of the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and Northern Florida ICAC, and past editor-in-chief of the Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law.
Prior to his current activities, Gary was Program Director for the Master of Science in Information Assurance program at Norwich University in Northfield, VT. From 2000-2010, Gary was an Associate Professor at Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont, where he started the Computer & Digital Forensics (on-campus and online), Computer Networking, and Information Security undergraduate programs and the M.S. in Digital Investigation Management program, and was the principal investigator at the Champlain College Center for Digital Investigation.
Prior to 2000, Gary was a Senior Network Security Analyst at SymQuest Group, a network integration consulting company in South Burlington, Vermont. Before that, he was the Director of Information Technology and a Senior Member of Technical Staff at Hill Associates, a telecommunications education and training firm located in Colchester, Vermont. He has been providing telecommunications course development, education, and consulting services since 1984, both at Hill Associates and as an independent consultant, with a brief hiatus as a Senior Consultant in the Professional Services Group at Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN) Systems & Technologies (where he telecommuted to the group's Cambridge, Massachusetts office and was program manager of CommerceNet's Public Key Infrastructure Task Force).
Gary has been a software engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California; Coordinator of Academic Computing at St. Michael's College in Colchester; and an applications programmer supporting researchers in the Cardiology Department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Gary holds a B.A. in Mathematics from Humboldt State University in Arcata, California; an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Vermont in Burlington; and a Ph.D. in Computing Technology in Education from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is also a Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Additionally, Gary is the Treasurer of the Consortium of Digital Forensic Specialists (CDFS).
Gary was instrumental in forwarding the advancement of computer crime legislation in Vermont, the last state in the U.S. to enact such legislation (1999). Gary is also the founding chair of the Vermont InfraGard chapter and is active in efforts to reverse laws requiring digital forensics examiners to be licensed as private investigators.
Gary is the co-author (with Peter V. Southwick) of ISDN: Concepts, Facilities, and Services, 4th. edition (McGraw-Hill, 1998), the co-author (with David A. Train) of Metropolitan Area Networks: Concepts, Standards, and Services (McGraw-Hill, 1992), and has written more than 60 articles and papers.
Gary is also active in academic and industry conferences, such as High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA), IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks, Mobile Forensics World, and TechnoSecurity, teaching tutorials or other presentations.
One of Gary's special interests is the history of computing, computers, and networking. He is a charter member of The Computer History Museum (formerly The Computer Museum) and the Internet Society.
Gary is also a PADI-certified divemaster and Master SCUBA Diver Trainer, as well as a USCG-licensed captain. He was originally certified in SCUBA by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation — source of the first recreational SCUBA certification in the U.S. — in 1967 at the age of 13. After a long hiatus, Gary was re-certified in 1991 as one of the original divers with the Colchester Rescue Dive Team in Colchester, Vermont. Although no longer active with the dive team, Gary still dives as much as possible, even including the wrecks in dark, cold, murky Lake Champlain. But he prefers warm water... See some of his favorite SCUBA Web sites and other SCUBA-related information.
Gary is a life member (and former Chief) of the Colchester Rescue Squad and was an Emergency Medical Technician from 1979-2006; he is also a member of the Green Mountain Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) Team.

"Social engineering" also remains a ..., 18 Sept 2011 [cached]
"Social engineering" also remains a constant threat in the tech industry, said Gary Kessler, director of the information assurance program at Norwich University, a private military college in Vermont that has trained security personnel at Apple and other high-profile companies. From e-mail scams seeking sensitive personal information to Cold War-style cloak-and-dagger subterfuge, human weakness can be easier to exploit and harder to protect against than digital vulnerabilities.
"This stuff has been going on for decades, just in a different guise," Kessler said. "The Internet has just given us a new vector for attack."
And in the end, he said, even the best-trained security team in the world can only do so much to protect against someone in a bar who may have been drinking and may have been showing off the most sought-after secret product in the world.
Said Kessler: "I'm guessing that Apple probably did everything that anybody could do, and they probably did it right."
