If you are looking for blog posts about my professional work, on things like cybersecurity and data privacy, can be found via scobb.net. I tweet about those topics, but also life in general, at @zcobb. I sometimes publish on Medium, SlideShare, and ResearchGate. In 2019, I was recognized as an award-winning technologist and I've been a CISSP since 1996. My master of science in security and risk management was earned at the University of Leicester (Criminology Department). In 2019, I moved from San Diego to Coventry in England, which is where I was born and grew up.
From 2011 to mid-2019 I was Senior Security Researcher at ESET, Europe's biggest security software company, where I helped create the award-winning security blog, We Live Security. These days I do my own research on my own time, working at the nexus of technology, ethics, gender, crime, privacy, and public policy. In my "spare time" I try to raise awareness of iron overload, the potentially deadly genetic condition, caused by Celtic Curse, also known as hereditary hemochromatosis. It's what disabled my partner of 30+ years, Chey Cobb. I also try to speak up for equality and diversity. #HeForShe
