Isaac Kohen started out in quantitative finance by programming trading algorithms at a major hedge fund. His time spent in the financial world and exposure to highly sensitive information triggered his curiosity for IT security. He worked as an IT security consultant for several years where he spearheaded efforts to secure the IT infrastructure of companies with masses of confidential data. When Isaac first entered the industry, IT norms were to prohibit and lock out as many people as possible to protect data. He found that this was a very ineffective way of solving the issue because it made it hard for many people who wanted to cause no harm, to do their jobs. He decided to focus on algorithms targeting user behavior to find outliers within the companies he consulted with to help detect insider threats.
