We are pleased to announce that as of this week, Joe Stewart (formerly with Dell SecureWorks for 17 years) has joined Cymmetria as a security researcher.
I’ve known Joe for nearly two decades, and have had the opportunity to collaborate with him on many occasions. From taking down cybercrime organizations to researching the most advanced threats, Joe has always been at the forefront of technology and has earned the respect of everyone in our field.
When Joe contacted me about joining Cymmetria, I couldn’t possibly refuse. It was the greatest honor I could hope for. Now we can collaborate once again on Joe’s favorite pastime: what we like to call “punching miscreants.”
Joe Stewart is a security researcher with Cymmetria. As a leading expert on malware and Internet threats, he is a frequent commentator on security issues for leading media outlets. Stewart has presented his security research at many conferences such as RSA, Black Hat, DEFCON, ShmooCon, RECON, NetSec, DeepSec, AusCERT, and others. Stewart has been profiled in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, and PC World. Stewart is also the founder of the SubProto hackerspace in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where he mentors the next generation of hardware and software hackers in hopes that they will have a positive impact on the world.
Gadi is the Founder and CEO of Cymmetria. Prior to founding Cymmetria, he was VP of Cybersecurity Strategy for Kaspersky Lab, led PwC’s Cyber Security Center of Excellence (located in Israel), and was CISO of the Israeli government’s Internet operations. Gadi is widely recognized for his work in Internet security operation and global incident response, and is considered the first botnet expert. He is currently Chairman of the Israeli CERT.
