as Jeff Moss
Mr. Moss advises companies on security issues, both, electronic and physical, as well as speaking globally on the topic. He sits on several advisory boards helping enterprises make informed decisions on cyber risks. In April 2011 Mr. Moss was appointed as the Chief Security Officer for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a non-profit whose responsibilities include coordinating and ensuring the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet's unique global identifiers as well as maintaining the root zone of the Internet. This position involved managing the IT security of the ICANN networks and information systems, the physical security of ICANN facilities and meetings, and ensuring that ICANN meets its security and resiliency commitments to the multi stake holder community that oversees ICANN. This position involved extensive international travel and coordination with governments, law enforcement, and operational security communities in support of discussions around Internet Governance and security. Mr. Moss left this position at the end of 2013. Moss is the founder and creator of both the Black Hat Briefings and DEF CON, two of the most influential information security conferences in the world, attracting over ten thousand people from around the world to learn the latest in security technology from those researchers who create it. DEF CON just had its 21st anniversary. Prior to creating Black Hat Briefings, Jeff was a director at Secure Computing Corporation where he helped establish their Professional Services Department in the United States, Asia, and Australia. His primary work was security assessments of large multi-national corporations. Jeff has also worked for Ernst & Young, LLP in their Information System Security division. Because of this unique background Jeff is uniquely qualified with his ability to bridge the gap between the underground researcher community and law enforcement, between the worlds of pure research and the responsible application of disclosure. Jeff is currently a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), providing advice and recommendations to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security on matters related to homeland security. Jeff is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher. In 2013, Jeff was appointed as a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, associated with the Cyber Statecraft Initiative, within the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. In 2014, Jeff joined the Georgetown University School of Law School Cybersecurity Advisory Committee. Jeff is active in the World Economic Forum, and recently became a member of the Cyber Security Global Agenda Council for 2014-2016. ICSA President's Award for Public Service, 2011.
