ScottOur founder - George E Scott Knauss born and raised in Virginia, he finished high school and joined the Navy. In the Navy, he studied Nuclear power and later, after a skiing accident took him off of submarine duty, Scott started working with computers and networking.

He worked first as an administrator, then became a NOC (Network Operations center) engineer for the US Navy’s Mediterranean fleet, and then as the Lead Engineer in that same NOC in Naples, Italy. Providing internet services and protecting the fleet from cyber attacks was a major part of Scott’s career for more than 13 years. He then moved on to perform security auditing and penetration testing with the US Navy’s Red Team testing new systems before they were released to the fleet. Scott has used the breadth of experience and knowledge acquired throughout his career to perform audits and penetration testing for small businesses and websites across the globe. Currently, Scott is the vCISO for multiple businesses and is engaged in supporting the vCISO community around the world through his efforts as CEO and founder of vCISO Catalyst.
