Speaking, Presenting, Teaching

Mainly about cybersecurity and data privacy

Audio and video recording

It's true that I sometimes talk to myself, but most of the recordings on this page were made in front of an audience. Here's my talk at TEDx San Diego in 2015 where I was invited to imagine the direction in which digital technology will evolve.

The earliest recording of me talking to an audience about computer security may be a session I did at the DEF CON III hacker conference in 1995. The sound starts out a little rough, but it gets better; in fact, it is surprisingly good, given that it was recorded 26 years ago. The title of the talk was chosen in order to encourage debate, and it did.

DEFCON III Talk: Why Hacking Sucks

This next item is a talk that I was invited to give at the inauguration of the Sage Talks event hosted by Sage Executive Group in San Diego in 2015. The topic is why I got into cybersecurity and some of the lessons I have learned.

Several more video and audio recordings can be found on my YouTube channel.. Here is a recording of me reading an article I wrote, where the text of the article is in the video:
