Ben de Bont has spent the last two decades defending some of America’s most sensitive and critical infrastructure from hackers. Building on these experiences, Ben is taking proactive steps to help protect consumers and their growing dependence on technology.
During PLS, Ben focused on creating SafeStack, a program that reduces the safety and privacy risks to consumers of IOT devices whether at home or at work.
