CLOSE-UP

I’ve lived all over the United States and spent the past decade securing our nation’s critical infrastructure. Whether it’s hackers or hurricanes or zombies, my passion is keeping you and your families safe. Outside of work, I make things– code, metalwork and blacksmithing, photography, cocktails– and sometimes even share those things with others.

JD Christopher Cybersecurity Expert

Well. That’s weird. No one clicks that button. Huh.

I’m currently the Chief Technology Officer for Axio Global, Inc., where I focus on cyber resilience controls and measurement. I’ve spent the past ten years working with critical infrastructure owners and operators to up their game and address the risks they face daily. I am lucky enough to have worked with some awesome people throughout my career.

I grew up in San Francisco, but have lived in New York, the District of Columbia, and am now in Charlotte. My time is usually spent traveling around the country to evangelize the importance of measuring and managing cyber risk, but also routinely lecture and speak on a variety of topics– from security to smart grid to education reform to zombie preparedness. I love diving into a research topic until I understand all of the elements and can explain them to my audience.

You can check out my ramblings on different topics via Twitter and get my socially-acceptable bio from LinkedIn. If none of that floats your boat, just send me a message!

TECHNICAL PROJECTS

I engage executives and boards by turning engineering concepts into digestible topics and accessible action items.
CYBER RESILIENCE OPTIMIZATION
Impenetrability is a myth. We’re in a new age of not only protecting our systems from cyber attacks, but also keeping the lights on despite a cyber incident happening to you.
ENERGY & SUSTAINABILITY
Resilience includes a diversity in technology and fuel. With smart cities on the rise and the Internet of Things in full swing, how does society balance new capabilities with evolving risks?
DATA SCIENCE & HUMAN BEHAVIOR
Big Data is a passing fad-- I’m all about artisanal small batch data. Finding trends through the noise of data and relaying meaningful metrics is a challenge. Making decisions off of that data is even more difficult. Luckily, I enjoy those sorts of problems.
