Making Cybersecurity a Little More Human
The Quirktree Team
Clinton Campbell, CISSP is founder, principal consultant, and instructor for Quirktree™. He has more than 16 years of experience in cybersecurity and privacy as well as 8 years of academic and professional experience in mental health. Upon completion of an MS in Computer Science from the University of Tulsa’s Center for Information Security, Clinton joined the National Security Agency’s Information Assurance Directorate where he spent several years digging for weaknesses in cryptographic systems. Over the years, his perspective on cybersecurity has evolved through various technical and leadership responsibilities in the security domain. Oddly enough, Clinton says that his work as a psychotherapist has played an equal if not greater role in shaping his approach to the industry’s most difficult challenges.
Clinton’s current focus is on growing the Quirktree™ team to provide affordable, high quality support and services to businesses, non-profits, and public entities. He currently serves as adjunct faculty for the University of Washington iSchool where he has taught Enterprise Risk Management and Introduction to Database Systems.
