I am a frequent speaker on talks and panels around the world, and a regular contributor to numerous newspapers and magazines on the subjects of information security and technology.
In order to do talks, panels, or get accepted as media into an event, there are filters you need to pass through and information you need to provide. Common ones include:
Do you have a website? How much traffic does it get? Are you a speaker? Where have you spoken? Where have you been published? What’s your Twitter handle? How many followers do you have? Send us a headshot. Send us a bio. Etc.
The rest of this page serves as a permanent, efficiency-based home for those answers.

- It was difficult to create this page because it feels disgustingly egotistical, which is the opposite of my natural personality. I only have it so that I can save time responding to talk and panel requests for information, and to justify entry into certain types of events.
