Mr. Mauck is software research and developer with a passion for building systems that matter and building teams that can tackle world class problems.
Mr. Mauck started building software in the late 70s on TSR-80 Model-1s by copying code out of Byte magazine and saving programs on cassette tape. In the 80s, he built and ran a dialup BBS with a focus on hacking and freaking which he ran for 2 years.
Mr. Mauck graduated cum laude from Bridgewater College with a dual B.S. degree in Math with a Computer Science concentration and Physics. He went on to graduate summa cum laude from University of Tennessee with a M.S. in Computer Science where he performed research with Neural Networks and Expert Systems in aerospace applications. He wrote his thesis on Techniques to Optimize Fractal Image Compression techniques where he developed techniques to reduce compression times by over an order of magnitude.
After college Mr. Mauck entered the federal contracting market. He spent 7 years building tools to manage and model aerospace applications including building massive parallel computation systems to perform trade studies for complex orbital systems. In the late 90s, he joined a .COM to build an early e-commerce affiliate system where he was the VP of Systems and Software.
In the early 2000s he re-joined the federal contractor market but changed his focus to computer security. Since that time, he had pioneered several programs of record in federal cyber security that are still ongoing in areas of mobile computing, enterprise security, and industrial control security. He also developed early methods of advanced forensics tools for embedded systems and developed threat hunting methodologies for Fortune-100 consulting firms.
Mr. Mauck is now the CEO of Mauck Research Group, LLC, a consulting and professional services company helping clients solve problems and build systems that matter. Some current projects include reverse engineering and development of security applications, development of secure computing platforms, securing United States critical infrastructure, and as a side interest, post quantum computing encryption algorithms.
