Fred Cohen is best known as the person who defined the term "computer virus" and the inventor of most of the widely used computer virus defense techniques, the principal investigator whose team defined the information assurance problem as it relates to critical infrastructure protection, as a seminal researcher in the use of deception for information protection, as a leader in advancing the science of digital forensic evidence examination, and as a top flight information protection consultant and industry analyst. But his work on information protection extends far beyond these areas.
