May 23, 2019 – So, you’ve got this fancy new cybersecurity technology. Before a virus or cyberattack comes along, how do you know if it works?
Craig Stevenson grappled with the answer to that question while working at Raytheon.

It worked, but it took weeks to set up just one clone, so the engineer set out on nights and weekends to find a faster solution.
