Chris Gates of Learn Security Online offered me the opportunity to participate in an email interview that’s been recently posted. When I consented I did so on the precondition that the questions would be engaging and not generic boring template type all too often used. When reading other peoples interviews I prefer seeing compelling answers to thoughtful questions and I think Chris did a great job.
During the interview I dive into a fair bit of detail about my past, how and why I founded WhiteHat Security, thoughts on the maturation of web application security, guidance on how others can get started, my views on the state of the industry, and finally where I think things are headed. We covered a lot of ground and discussed many of the important issues. Here’s a snippet:
