Victor Sheymov

Victor Sheymov is a cyber security expert, author, scientist, inventor, and holder of multiple patents for methods and systems in cyber security. Victor Sheymov was a speaker on intelligence, offensive warfare, cyberspace, cyber security and critical infrastructure protection. Victor stood for honesty, honor and integrity. In his early years, he defected from Russia with his family to fight and expose Communism. In US, his inventions included cyber security defense of America’s power grids, software to protect children from online predators, acoustic warning devices for dolphins, large scale control of California wild fires, and improvement for cell phones acoustic range and sound quality. Until the end, Victor dedicated his life to fighting for truth, justice and the greater good. Specializing in cyber security, Mr. Sheymov holds over 30 patents in the field of computer security. He has been granted patents in the United States, the European Union, Australia, Japan, India, Korea, and China. In a book Cyberspace and Security he explains how cyberspace is radically different from physical space. He analyzes the differences between the two, and defines the laws and characteristics of cyberspace. In a revised edition of Cyberspace and Security, Sheymov covers COHERENT DEFENSE OF LARGE SOVEREIGN CYBER SYSTEMS. Mr. Sheymov is the inventor of Variable Cyber Coordinates (VCC) method of communications.This method of communications is advantageous for establishing a high level of cyber security. By hopping IP address and other communications parameters, it provides dynamic protection of computers and computer networks through cyber agility.VCC method of communications enables building cyber security systems that render hacking attacks computationally infeasible. Furthermore, this method does not require intrusions in customer's information and systems. It provides security without violating customer's privacy or civil liberties. Victor Sheymov has 30 years of experience in advanced science. He performed scientific research involving guidance systems for use in the Soviet "Star Wars" missile defense program. Mr. Sheymov worked in the Soviet counterpart to the U.S. National Security Agency, serving in a variety of technical and operational positions. Prior to defecting for ideological reasons to the United States in 1980, Mr. Sheymov had been one of the youngest KGB Majors in its equivalent of the NSA, responsible for coordination of all aspects of KGB cipher communications security with its outposts abroad. After his arrival in the United States he worked for the NSA for a number of years. His work for the Soviet counterpart to NSA and the National Security Agency puts him in a unique position for a comparative perspective. Mr. Sheymov has testified in the United States Congress as an expert witness. He has been a keynote speaker at major government and private industry events such as NSA, a National Defense Industry convention, a National Science Foundation symposium, and he has been a guest lecturer at various Universities. Victor Sheymov is the author of "Tower of Secrets" (HarperCollins), a non-fiction book describing Soviet Communist political system, its repressive apparatus, and technical aspect of intelligence. His new book Tiebreaker, Tower of Secrets II, is the fascinating memoir of how Victor Sheymov figured out the reason behind the campaign to destroy him and his family, and the cause of the CIA’s catastrophic intelligence failures revealed with the arrest of Aldrich Ames. Sheymov then found himself at the center of the next intelligence crisis with the arrest of his longtime FBI liaison, Robert Hanssen. And now Sheymov, world-class cyber security expert and inventor, finds himself at the heart of the controversy over the solution to the rapidly growing global threat to cyber security.(Cyber Books Publishing) He has also authored articles in The Washington Post, Barron's, World Monitor, National Review and other national publications. He appeared in many national news programs including Larry King Live, 48 Hours, Dateline, McNeil-Lehrer, Charlie Rose and the McLaughlin Report. Victor Sheymov is a recipient of several prestigious U.S. awards in intelligence and security. Victor Sheymov holds an Executive MBA from Emory University and a Master's degree from Moscow State Technical University, a Russian equivalent of MIT.
