Keynote Speaker Caleb Sima Co-founder, Chief Technology Officer, Director of SPI Labs S.P.I. Dynamics Incorporated

Caleb Sima is the co-founder and chief technology officer of SPI Dynamics, the expert in web application security assessment and testing. Caleb is responsible for directing the lifecycle of the company’s web application security solutions and is the director of SPI Labs, the renowned application security research and development group within SPI Dynamics. Here, he leads a team of accomplished security experts who have received worldwide recognition for the identification of security vulnerabilities and exploits.

Caleb has been engaged in the Internet security arena since 1996, a time when the concept of Internet security was just emerging. Since then, he has become widely recognized within the industry as an expert in penetration (pen) testing (testing a company’s network security for critical flaws), and for identifying emerging security threats. In early 2000 Caleb co-founded SPI Dynamics and helped define the direction the industry has taken. Prior to co-founding SPI Dynamics, Caleb worked for Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS), an industry pioneer and global leader in Internet security. Caleb was a member of ISS’ elite X-Force research and development team, led the creation of the first pen testing team and drove enterprise security assessments for the company. Caleb began his security career as a security engineer for S1 Corporation. In this role, he was responsible for testing the security of software products for the banking and finance industries. Additionally, he was in charge of security for S1’s Datacenter, which managed the data transfer and security of some of the world’s leading financial institutions.

Caleb’s engineering exploits have gained media attention in publications such as the New York Times and the Washington Post. He has also contributed to Baseline Magazine and was featured, along with the ISS X-Force, in US News and World Report and Security World Magazine. A frequent speaker at industry events and tradeshows, Caleb’s most recent appearances include RSA 2004, the 2003 SouthEast CyberCrime Summit, Comdex 2003, Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), and the 2002 Cyber Security in the Financial Services Sector Executive Summit.
