Keith D. Bertolino, Chief Executive Officer, co-founded Cipher Tech Solutions in 2006. Keith began his technical career in 2001 in IT support, building a company out of his parents’ basement while in High School. His young company supported many law firms in the suburbs of NYC. As a college undergraduate, Keith became involved with the Department of Defense, working for the DoD Cyber Crime Center <http://www.dc3.mil/> . He specialized in custom software development and created several tools that are still being used by the Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory today. Keith also published two research papers, one on Wireless Security <http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?arnumber=4054789> and one on Steganography Jamming <http://www.spectrum.ieee.org/aug08/6593> . His research generated international attention in 2008 when it was featured in the August issue of IEEE Spectrum.
Keith has had the privilege of presenting at the 2008 Homeland Security Conference <http://www.ieeehomelandsecurityconference.org/2008conf/program.htm> and the 2009 Defense Cyber Crime Conference <http://www.dodcybercrime.com/> and will be speaking at the 2011 Defense Cyber Crime Conference <http://www.dodcybercrime.com/> .
Keith received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering with a minor in Technological Entrepreneurship (2008) and a Master of Science in Engineering Management with a focus on leadership from the Gordon Program (2009) at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.
Passionate about entrepreneurship, Keith invests most of his free time in starting and running a variety of small businesses, but occasionally finds time to work on old cars or hit the slopes for a ski race.
