Infosci is a really interesting start-up company. It was founded by three people, the youngest 75-year-old former CIA worker, and is doing cyber security software.
Infosci is a venture capital company founded by a business man, a lawyer and an old CIA employee to work on preventing cyber-attacks. The ages of the founders of the company are changing between 75 and 80.
At the age of 75, John Ellingson, a high school graduate businessman and ex-owner of a Washington-based installation company, is the youngest partner of the company. Phil Dean, the oldest member of the team, worked for 30 years at the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in a counterterrorism office and likes to use unicycle. John Kittelberger, a lawyer specializing in the identification of frauds with his fraud detection system invented about 20 years ago, is in his 75th year in the world.
Infosci is working on a system design which will enable the US Personnel Administration Office in 2014 to protect against the attacks of 22 million Americans’ social security numbers and the cyber-attacks of personal information of all new and old employees.
In the OPM attack, hackers acted like trusted subcontractors who knew the secret codes known by the Bureau employees and they infiltrated the system. Infosci developed software that can change these codes a thousand times in a second.
According to Alez Doll, a partner of private equity firm TenEleven Ventures, that supports security initiatives, the Silicon Valley is filled with hungry teenagers. He said the Infosci chose a highly competitive field of safety.
Infosci‘s “young lads,” working with $ 650,000 in capital from family, friends and IT Company Nuvitek, say their ages have raised themselves to first place in the US Patent Office and they expect to get their patents on August 1st. The main target of the company is to work with industry giants such as Dell and Alphabet.
