About Space Rogue
Over twenty years in the security industry and a proven ability to use Open Source Intelligence to link disparate events, read between the lines and distill complex technical information into easy to understand and actionable intelligence. Skilled at utilizing social and traditional media to communicate with a wide and varied audience.
Widely sought after for unique views and perceptions of the security industry, I have testified before the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs and have been quoted in numerous media outlets from Austrian TV to MTV and from Wired to MSNBC. I have spoke on a wide range of topics in front of audiences at OWASP, ISACA, Blackhat, Defcon, BSides, HOPE, Shmoocon, and others.
An early member of the security research think tank known as L0pht Heavy Industries I helped co-found the Internet security consultancy @Stake. While at L0pht Heavy Industries I created the widely popular Hacker News Network, which, not once but twice, became a major resource on the Internet for information security news.
“I think with development practices, such as CI, we’re going to get to a point that rather than having this one, monolithic milestone where you’re given these hundreds of defects, instead the developer will have the ability to ingest these quality defects as they truly are on a daily or nightly basis as their code is checked in, compiled, assessed and run against the test harness allowing for a lot more of these defects to be addressed a lot earlier in the development cycle.” — Omkhar Arasaratnam
