Greg Scott

Cybersecurity Professional & Author

Greg Scott is a published author and veteran of the tumultuous IT industry. Greg believes that the public deserves to know: we don’t need to be sitting ducks for cyberattacks. That's why he decided to do something about it and published “Bullseye Breach: Anatomy of an Electronic Break-In” in 2015 to show how an ad-hoc team in Minneapolis stopped overseas attackers after they stole 40 million customer credit card numbers from a fictional retailer, Bullseye Stores, during a busy Christmas shopping season. In “Virus Bomb”, published in 2019, after nobody heeded his warnings, a bald-headed, middle-aged IT contractor uncovered the largest cyberattack in history and saved millions of lives from the follow-on biological attack. Start reading either novel and you won’t want to put them down. According to Greg, sometimes we can use fiction to present truth better than the news. You can find more about Greg's novels here.
