Formerly the Chief Security Officer at Skype Technologies, Kurt is well experienced in managing key information security projects, including policy development, compliance management, government relations and continuing education. He is actively involved in the computer security incident response community through his involvement in the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST).
