About Me

What I do. Who I am.

Clarity, Tone, and Perspective.

I started my career building web applications for clients such as AT&T, Valley National Bank, and Cingular Wireless. Around 2001, I transitioned to Identity & Access Management (IAM) services and managed IAM projects for Nextel, ADP, Tyco International, Major League Baseball, Genworth Financial, and others. I later held technical, consulting, marketing, sales, and product management roles in IAM and Information Security for companies such as MaXware (now SAP), RSA, NetVision, and STEALTHbits Technologies. In 2011, SYS-CON Media honored me as one of the Most Powerful Voices in Information Security. And in 2014, Digital Media added my blog to their list of the top 50 Information Security blogs. I now have an internally-facing role at Oracle providing research and analysis on Cloud Security, Data Security, and Identity & Access Management.
