Don Jones joined the cable industry over 21 years ago from IBM Global Services. His varied career has included working venue security, skip tracing and auto repossession. Working first for Adelphia, then Time Warner and finally Comcast, his specific Scientific Atlanta (Cisco) expertise in conditional access helped to drive cable television from all analog to all digital delivery, introduced Tru2Way and switched digital video. In 2014, he turned his professional focus back toward his fraud and cyber security passion. He currently holds his C.I.S.S.P. certification and is a part-time student, working on a degree in cybersecurity at CSU Denver. Currently holding a single patent, he has created dozens of software tools that enable threat actor detection, and attribution. His protective nature is fueled by his passion for learning and teaching. Don has published several security related white papers with SCTE and has provided numerous training sessions for government agencies and law enforcement around the world.
At home, he enjoys doing volunteer work, spending time with his wife and son and studying tactics, techniques and procedures of commodity and advanced persistent threat actors.
