A: JUSTINE BONE CEO of MedSec ROBERT MASSE National Partner in the Cyber Practice MICHAEL CALCE CEO of Optimal Secure and HP’s Security Advisory Board Chairman “For years, software and hardware makers were able to rely on security by obscurity. There was no upside to building in this quality all the way through the product because nobody was asking questions. Now, though, people are definitely asking, and it is time for the leadership HP is providing. HP’s investment in security in depth is a testament to the company’s ongoing commitment to building quality solutions. It’s an honor to be bringing an outside perspective to this initiative as HP continues to assess the threat landscape and prioritize security across product lines.” Justine Bone is the CEO of MedSec, a company specializing in cybersecurity for medical devices and the health care domain. She began her career doing reverse engineering and vulnerability research at New Zealand’s version of the U.S. National Security Agency before running her own ethical hacking company for a few years. She also has experience as a CISO for companies like Bloomberg L.P. and Dow Jones. “When initially approached to join the SAB, I immediately saw the potential to assist one of the largest PC and print manufacturers in the world to make a real impact and help reduce the threat surface. As you know, attackers are placing a major emphasis on compromising endpoints as the weakest link in most corporate environments, and HP has very interesting technology and a roadmap that will help organizations and individuals really improve their security posture. As an example, HP’s focus on helping organizations achieve cyber-resilience with technologies like HP Sure Start definitely resonates with the need I am seeing in the world right now.” Robert Masse is a national partner in the cyber practice. With over 20 years of experience in cybersecurity, he’s built a reputation as a pragmatic security executive. “Having worked with HP to consult and educate on the cyber-threat landscape, I was excited to help set up a new Security Advisory Board to take things to the next level. I was inspired by HP’s commitment to look at different angles to create more secure products. Helping to establish and chair this board was a natural fit for me and enables all of us to team up and advocate how to improve security together. The board is not a symbolic gesture; there are no smoke and mirrors here. The members I assembled are there to offer the best advice and input that we possibly can for HP, to really help develop the most secure products that will impact the world and address a degrading threat landscape.” Michael Calce became publicly known as “Mafiaboy” when, in 2000 at the age of 15 he unleashed a massive cyberattack that brought down Yahoo!, eBay and Amazon. It led to an FBI manhunt and $1.7 billion in economic fallout. Since then, Michael has reformed and made a career in cybersecurity consulting and education on the threat landscape. He is the award-winning author of the book “Mafiaboy: How I Cracked the Internet and Why It’s Still Broken.” Innovation Journal Issue Ten
