Security Cloud Privacy Tech

I make security and privacy easier to understand.

Hi, I'm Mark. A forensic scientist, speaker, and coach.

Technology is complicated. Understanding how social media, hackers, ad tech, cybercrime, and the rest of it impact you and your community is hard.

I explore how we can build technology that has strong privacy and security protections built in by design. Whether that's in the cloud, on your smartphone, or anywhere else. I try to make it easier for everyone to know what impact technology has on their lives.
