Michael Toecker


Michael Toecker is an engineer with broad expertise in cybersecurity research, industrial systems, electric power, energy and cybersecurity policy, regulatory, and exercises. Toecker has worked in cybersecurity for industrial systems since graduation from the University of Missouri-Rolla as a computer engineer in 2005. He has worked for Big 10 engineering firms, Fortune 500 utilities, boutique cyber research firm Digital Bond, and built a focused consultancy in 2014 to explore important electric power resilience and security issues for public and private clients.

Serving the public good brings Michael joy, and he is happiest when working to overcome hard challenges. Fortunately, cybersecurity and energy are the challenges of this generation, and Michael doesn’t anticipate being bored for the foreseeable future. When decompressing, Toecker spends his time hiking, reading, engaging in lively online debate, poking and prodding industrial devices found on eBay, and fixing up a recently purchased Schoolie into his adventuring home on wheels.
