#31 • IoT Security and Privacy w/ Terry Dunlap, Founder & CEO, Tactical Network Solutions
After an early arrest for hacking, Terry Dunlap grew up to work for the good guys—first with the NSA, and now as the Founder & CEO of Tactical Network Solutions. TNS helps ensure that manufacturers consider security for the whole IoT product lifecycle.
In this episode we get deep into Internet of Things security and privacy starting with the current (awful!) state of “things”, whether companies are starting to get “get” IoT security, and what the future will be like.
Terry Dunlap is Founder & CEO of Tactical Network Solutions. He spent over fives years as an intelligence analyst, programmer, trainer, and speaker with the US National Security Agency (NSA) before starting Tactical Network Solutions (TNS) in 2007.
TNS specializes in cyber risk mitigation of IoT and other connected devices. Through meticulous examination of the heart and soul of IoT devices—firmware—Mr. Dunlap’s company discovers hidden attack vectors that place IoT devices squarely into the crosshairs of hackers.
Prior to his NSA experience, Mr. Dunlap held network security positions at Western Kentucky University and Deloitte & Touche, LLP. Prior to that Mr. Dunlap worked at Fidelity Investments.
Mr. Dunlap earned a Master of Science in Network Security from Capitol College (now Capitol Technology University) and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics from Case Western Reserve University.
