Ed Skoudis

Founder, Counter Hack

Ed Skoudis and his SANS Penetration Testing Curriculum have enabled more than 36,000 cybersecurity professionals to learn advanced techniques in pen-testing, incident response and hacker exploits. He can distill in courses the essence of the exploitation chain in major cases, because he is the first expert brought in to provide after-attack analysis on breaches where important data are lost. Skoudis also leads development of NetWars, the low-cost, widely-used cyber-training and simulation ranges relied upon by military and corporate enterprises to prepare for critical threats. His team built CyberCity, the urban cyber-warfare simulator featured on the Washington Post’s front page.
