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.

He decided to focus on algorithms targeting user behavior to find outliers within the companies he consulted with to help detect insider threats. Isaac can be contacted at ikohen@teramind.co
