Biography

Doug Lhotka leads the IBM North America Security Architect program. As a practicing security architect, he leverages his expertise in cyber and cognitive security, IT governance and enterprise architecture to help organizations enable strategic business initiatives through their security program, address industrialized threats, and improve the risk posture of the business. Over more than 25 years, he has led initiatives to optimize security and IT programs at many large and mid-sized firms in most major industries. Doug has developed formal methods designed to identify and close security gaps by advancing security programs. His expertise goes beyond security, having written papers on cognitive science, IT governance & risk management, and user interface design. He has several patents, and co-authored a best-selling book on 3D printing for fine art. His latest book, tentatively titled Cyber Security: Beyond Controls is in development. He often speaks with private and public audiences on security topics including cognitive security. He is a member of ISC2 and a senior member of IEEE. Doug earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer & Cognitive Science and a Master of Engineering in Engineering Management, both from the University of Colorado where he has served on the advisory board for the Engineering Management program. His research work focused on architectural risk management in what is now called cloud. An avid outdoorsman, Doug and his wife live in Colorado with their four-footed & hoofed children. He spends as much of his time as he can not doing security work in the Rocky Mountains.
