Doc Blackburn

Doc Blackburn has over 30 years of experience in system and software design, server and network administration and website programming. His interest in computers started in 1982 when he first started programming in DOS on a Texas Instruments TI-99 4a and continued as a dedicated computer hobbyist until he decided to make information technology a full-time career in 1998. 

Doc ran a successful IT consulting, hosting, and design firm for 12 years until he found his passion was in systems security and compliance. His well-rounded experience includes hardware, software, network design, project management, administration, programming, systems security, and compliance frameworks. He has vast experience at various levels of information technology from technical support to security leadership roles. 

He has been heavily involved in the technical design and implementation of NIH approved FISMA compliant information systems.  His current work has focused on HIPAA, FERPA, PCI DSS, and FISMA compliant systems with an emphasis on IT risk management in enterprise environments. 

Doc holds ITIL, CISSP, HCISPP (healthcare, HIPAA), PCI ISA (payment card industry) and GIAC GSEC, GISF, GPEN, GCPM, GCIA and GSLC certifications along with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona. He is currently the IT Compliance Administrator for the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus.

"In my professional career I have recruited, hired, trained, and mentored many highly technical individuals to excel in their professional development and am excited to continue to do the same as a SANS instructor. I have a blog at http://docblackburn.blogspot.com explaining cyber-security to non-technical users in language and terms they can understand."
