Cary Moore, CFE, CISSP
IBM Red Cell Team Leader, Associate Partner
Global Banking Counter Fraud & Financial Crimes
With a career distinguished by 14 years of highly decorated service to the United States Air Force, of which seven were as a Federal Agent for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), Mr. Moore has more than 17 years of specialized experience in cybersecurity, enterprise forensics, and technical surveillance countermeasures (TSCM). Focusing on counterintelligence and counterespionage, he brings a unique perspective to insider threats and protecting some of the most sensitive data.
During his time with AFOSI, Special Agent Moore participated in investigations on a global scale, where he quickly gained notoriety with covert remote forensics as a new technique in the industry. These techniques brought new capabilities to investigations by allowing evidence to be captured and analyzed in real-time without compromising or disclosing the investigation.
Special Agent Moore was one of the first Computer Crime Investigator Agents sent to the TSCM school, hosted by the National Security Agency. Looking for new ways to detect compromised computers exploited as surveillance devices, he designed a tool to quickly identify areas of possible compromise. This tool was incorporated into the curriculum and circulated to agents around the world as an effective way to identify compromised systems. This training also gave him specialized experience in physical security, radio frequency analysis, and audio and video penetration detection.
Following his years with AFOSI, Mr. Moore joined Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase Computer Forensic and eDiscovery software. Supporting clients around the world, he conducted incident response and e-discovery engagements. After promotion to Technical Director (cybersecurity), he worked with federal public-sector clients for incident response. Prior to his current role, he served as a Senior Vice President, Cyber Intelligence and Emerging Threats Manager at Bank of America. Finding new ways to “rob a bank” and banking customers, he devised controls to prevent the fraud from ever being realized. Currently, he is an Associate Partner for the IBM Red Cell Team where he conducts dark web intelligence gathering, operations to identify compromised accounts, and ways to get in front of fraud. He also serves as an Adjunct Faculty Instructor for the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
Mr. Moore is an accomplished speaker who has lectured in national and international forums, including US-CERT GFirst Conference, DoD Cyber Crime Conferences, and as a Technical Keynote Address delegate to the 2009 NATO IA Symposium. As an authority in evidence seizure, data recovery, and computer forensics, his expert testimony has been crucial in multiple court cases.
In addition to his professional experience, Mr. Moore holds well-respected industry certifications, including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), and (formerly) the EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCE) certification. He is a member of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association, the Information Systems Security Association, and a founding member of the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Houston Chapter. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and a master’s degree in Business Administration.
