Peter H. Gregory

petergregoryIn his thirty year IT career, Peter H. Gregory has worn every hat and coat in the IT closet. Early in his career, he learned that he had a knack for teaching others how to use and program computers. Soon he was writing user manuals and doing stand-up teaching.

In the 1990s he was introduced to executives at Prentice Hall. Soon after, he developed an opportunity to write his first book, Solaris Security, which was published in 2000 in English, Chinese, and Japanese. Since that time he has written 22 more titles for Prentice-Hall, Financial Times, John Wiley, McGraw Hill, and Cengage Course Technology.

Peter is the information systems security officer (ISSO) for a financial services firm in the Seattle area. He is on the advisory board and the lead instructor in the University of Washington certificate in Information Systems Security, and also on the advisory board for the UW certificate in Information Security and Risk Management. He also serves on the board of directors for the Seattle chapter of InfraGard, a member of the Cloud Security Alliance certification board, and a founding member of the Pacific CISO Forum. Peter regularly speaks at industry conferences including SecureWorld Expo, Washington Technology Industry Association, West Coast Security Forum, and RSA. He has been featured in Computerworld, Software Magazine, Information Security Magazine, SC Magazine, CIO Magazine, IBM Forward View, Tech Republic, Dark Reading, Forbes, and BusinessWeek. In 2006 he was an expert witness in the successful federal prosecution of a cyber criminal.

He holds several prestigious industry certifications including CISSP, CISA, CRISC, DRCE, and CCSK.
