Peter Hesse is the chief security officer of 10Pearls, where he focuses on avoiding the common break/fix mentality around security, instead finding ways to architect and build security into systems and products. For nearly two decades, Peter has leveraged his passion for technology and experience in security to develop successful solutions to interesting problems. From an exciting start developing the reference implementation of a standards-based certification authority for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to overcoming obstacles and successfully demonstrating the system that formed the basis of the Federal PKI, Peter has built his reputation tackling complex challenges and explaining them to others. Previously, Peter founded and ran the successful information security consulting firm Gemini Security Solutions for over a dozen years.
