About: Mark helps organizations build securely in the cloud
Opinionated, passionate, and driven, Mark is more than a clichéd byline. In his 20+ years of tackling development and operational challenges around the world, he has seen all manner of "interesting" solutions.
Teaching the community through his writing, speaking, and code, Mark works hard to help modernize security practices.
As the vice president of cloud research, Mark sits at the nexus of internal product development, academic, and industry research and the latest advancements from Trend Micro's cloud partners. This unique viewpoint gives Mark a down-to-earth view despite his focus on cloud computing.
He holds a master’s degree in information security systems with specialization in digital forensics, is an engaging public speaker, an O'Reilly video author, and an accomplished computer scientist and security executive.
