Apr. 15  Guest Speaker

John Corliss, senior computer scientist, U.S. Department of Homeland Security


John Corliss from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security leads a discussion about strengthening the security and resilience of cyberspace and federal networks as an important part of the homeland security mission.

John Corliss is a computer scientist with the DHS National Protection and Programs Directorate.  He has been supporting national cybersecurity programs for over 10 years, and before that he worked as a mechanical engineering intern with the U.S. Navy designing and analyzing missiles.
John has lived in the Pensacola area since 1999 and is a product of the opportunities presented in that area, with degrees from both the University of West Florida and Pensacola Christian College.  John's passions are his family, cybersecurity research, robotics, next-generation cyberspace visualization tools, and the application of artificial intelligence techniques to the cyber domain.  John enjoys presenting on cybersecurity topics to audiences ranging from the engineering and science community to completely non-technical people who are curious how cybersecurity impacts them, and makes use of many communications channels to spread the word about the excitement involved with choosing a career in cybersecurity.  He is also active in supporting the DHS summer cyber intern program, which provides hands-on experience to college students during their summer vacation.
