After my graduation from Paris University in 1970, I worked in the Rothschild Group where, among others tasks, he was in charge of the network security and other security related issues. In 1981, I joined the French Ministry of Industry where I was in charge of the Open Systems Standardization programs.
In 1986, I took the position of European Information Security Manager at Digital Equipment. Then, hI joined the security research and development team. In 1999, I went to Entrust Technologies, PKI software editor. In 2003, I joined Computer Associates Int. as a Technology Strategist. In April 2017, I retired from CA Technologies.
Greetings - I have been a CISSP since 1996. For the past six years I have been a security researcher at ESET (two fun facts: it's been around for 30 years and is now the largest European security software company).
Prior to ESET I co-founded a couple of security startups that were sold to NASDQ listed companies and helped develop network security software that is still in use today. I've done quite a bit of security teaching (e,g. Norwich University MSIA program) and writing (see We Live Security and S. Cobb on Security).
Trivia bonus: In 1991, I published a book on PC and LAN security that was, for a while, part of the CBK.
Together with my colleague, Lysa Myers, I presented some research at this year's Congress. I am currently exploring how to share a PDF of our slides with the Community.
