I evangelize network and application security solutions with a focus on cryptographic and denial-of-service attacks. My former experience as a security developer and analyst enables me to connect to all audiences from layman to ops to CISO.
As the face of F5 security, I’ve spoken at over 30 conferences, met with thousands of customers, recorded dozens of interviews, and written hundreds of bylines, whitepapers and blogs. “David Holmes has a knack for making technical information both interesting and relatable to the layman.”
