About Mark

Mark Nunnikhoven

Hi!. As you’ve probably figured out, my name is Mark. That’s me, up there ⤴

I’m the Vice President, Cloud Research at Trend Micro focusing on:

Over the past few years, I’ve had a lot of opportunities to travel the work speaking at events, engaging with various communities, and raise awareness of the security challenges we’re all facing.

Speaking Engagements

Speaking at an event is always exciting for me. Not only do I get to share my point of view on particular issues but I also get to interact and engage with great communities around the world.

I speak regularly on modern security practices and other topics to crowds from 100–1000+.

I do my best to attend conferences I speak at since I believe it's important for speakers to be available to the attendees and to contribute back as much as possible to the community.

My speaking fees are reasonable and I do make accommodations for non-profit/free events.

If you'd like to see an example of me speaking, check out this talk from the AWS Summit in San Francisco in Apr/2015, me at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference in Dec/2014, or (in an extremely casual setting) me at B-Sides St. John's in 2013.

Please get in touch if you're interested in having me speak at your event.

Media Interviews

Getting a reasonable technical voice in the press can be difficult. I'm always more than happy to provide a quote or background information for any technical or security issue.

I've got a wide range of media experience from online to print to radio to TV. I understand the pressures of media and am more than happy to work under tight deadlines.


Writing is probably the type of sharing I enjoy most but do the least. I'm a reasonable writing and typically product work with a more casual feel. I'm a huge fan of Brian Fugere's book, "Why Business People Speak Like Idiots". I'm also a massive fan of the oxford comma. You have been warned.

I'm more than happy to write for online or print and can adjust accordingly.

Supporting Info

Of course this wouldn't be an "about" page if I didn't actually write a little about myself. My LinkedIn page is the best place to get the details of my career path and various accreditations & certification. Since I do do quite a bit of speaking, here's a short & a long bio for event use.

Also a handy link to my head shot for online or print.
