Biography

Internationally-renowned security technologist and author Bruce Schneier is both a founder and the chief technical officer of Counterpane Internet Security, Inc. Counterpane provides managed-security monitoring services to organizations worldwide. This outsourced real-time monitoring service uses a unique combination of people and technology to safeguard computer networks. Using sophisticated analysis and correlation tools, Counterpane's expert security analysts monitor the entire network for suspicious internal and external activities, and help an organization take immediate action to keep its business running smoothly.

Bruce Schneier is responsible for maintaining Counterpane's technical lead in world-class information security technology and its practical and effective implementation. Bruce Schneier's security experience makes him uniquely qualified to shape the direction of the company's research endeavors, as well as to act as a spokesperson to the business community on security issues and solutions.

Bruce Schneier is the author of six books, including Secrets & Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World. Published in October 2000, it was called by Fortune "[a] jewel box of little surprises you can actually use." One of his earlier books, Applied Cryptography, now in its second edition, is the seminal work in its field and has sold over 150,000 copies and has been translated into five languages. Applied Cryptography explains how the arcane science of secret codes actually works, and was described by Wired as "the book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published." His book, Beyond Fear, tackles the problems of security from the small to the large: personal safety, crime, corporate security, and national security.

Bruce Schneier writes the free email newsletter Crypto-Gram, which has over 70,000 readers. He has presented papers at many international conferences, and he is a frequent writer, contributing editor, and lecturer on the topics of cryptography, computer security, and privacy.

Bruce Schneier designed the popular Blowfish encryption algorithm, and his Twofish was a finalist for the new Federal Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Bruce Schneier served on the board of directors of the International Association for Cryptologic Research, and is an Advisory Board member for the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

Bruce Schneier holds a MS degree in Computer Science from American University and a BS degree in Physics from the University of Rochester. Described by The Economist as "a security guru," Bruce Schneier is best known as a refreshingly candid and lucid security critic and commentator. When people want to know how security really works, they turn to Bruce Schneier.
