In 2008, Carr established a Project Grey Goose, a crowd-sourced open-source intelligence effort to attribute major cyber attacks. The Project solicited the expertise of vetted volunteers while seeking to filter out non-experts and cybercriminals. The Project’s first area of research was the campaign of cyber attacks during the Russo-Georgian War.
In 2011, Carr made the Suits and Spooks conference series, which offered an individual forum for intelligence veterans to meet together with technologists, academics, hackers, including business executives. The forum was acquired by Wired Business Media back in 2014.

Writing and research
Carr is the author of Inside Cyber Warfare known as Mapping the Cyber Underworld by O’Reilly Media in 2009 and 2011). It analyzed cyber conflicts from 2002 till 2009. In Cyber Warfare, Carr claimed that international cyber attacks are predominantly deployed by non-state actors, who are somehow encouraged and tolerated by state entities.
Alternatively, as Carr later told the Christian Science Monitor, it is individual IT infrastructure, relatively than government policy, that remains at the heart of US vulnerability to international cyber attacks.
Jeffrey has blogged regarding cyber security and warfare at Intelfusion.net till September 1, 2010 and Forbes’ The Firewall. Carr said he had left The Firewall in protest after his post on Yuri Milner’s relationship to the Russian FSB was being taken down by Forbes at the request of Milner’s lawyer. Later in March 2017, Carr reported there was growing doubt in the computer security industry about the narrative of Russian state sponsorship of hacks associated with the 2016 US elections.
Carr also stated that, since the FBI relied on forensic investigations by global cybersecurity consultancy CrowdStrike, everyone else would also rely on the information they provided. Various notable competitors of CrowdStrike, and Symantec, FireEye examined the underlying data endorsing CrowdStrike’s conclusions.
