Todd has worked as an IT professional for Indiana University in one capacity or another for over 20 years. He cut his teeth in a Novell world with command prompts and comparatively minuscule amounts of memory and disk space. He became deeply focused on security back in the early 2000s, when it became apparent that unprotected systems could be compromised in a matter of minutes. As a network systems admin, he was responsible for securing servers and workstations; configuring solid computer builds; configuring firewalls, IPSec, and group policy objects; and documenting procedures and change management activities. More recently, Todd has been involved with IT security compliance as part of an enterprise risk management project at IU. At REN-ISAC, his role is focused on membership and partner relationships, leading projects geared toward improving services.
