As a non-profit security researcher, my work with ISECOM is about 10 years ahead of the security industry. Current trends (2015) in security products in technology reflect my published research from 2006.

I have taught medical systems at Buffalo University Medical School, Business Information Security for ESADE Business School's MBA program, and Security Testing and Analysis at La Salle University Barcelona.

They're my friends  •  Independent Director, Aequitas NEO Exchange and Co-Founder and CTO, KOR Group.
Pete's the most impressive security professional I've ever met. His approach is different, but I believe it to be far more advanced than wha ... t the security industry normally does. He's passionate about security, trust and helping people and it comes through in everything he does.

Dave has been directly involved in many fields while holding many of the roles from developer to executive adviser. This gives him the big-p ... icture and the long-vision required of what it takes to make a successful project. He is technically proficient, business-minded, and experienced in the politics and human-relations needed for understanding the ins and outs of making a business.
