Within his architect role, Mr. Kearn partners on projects for the Consumer Bank and is responsible for ensuring those projects align with information security policy and industry best practices for securing systems. Mr. Kearn brings more than seventeen years of varied experience in Information Technology to his current role.
Carl Landwehr, Ph.D.
Dr. Landwehr received his B.S. from Yale University in engineering and applied science and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in computer and communication sciences. His graduate work included development work on the MERIT computer network, which eventually became the Internet. After teaching computer science at Purdue University, he joined the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), where his interest in understanding how we can have confidence in what a computer program does led him to a 23-year career in what is now called cybersecurity research and development. After leaving NRL in 1999, he spent 12 years developing, funding, managing, and guiding national cybersecurity research programs for the National Science Foundation, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. In addition to his contributions to the research literature, Dr, Landwehr served four years as editor-in-chief of IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine. He is an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to cybersecurity and was in the first class of 11 individuals inducted into the National Cyber Security Hall of Fame in 2012.
