I’ve known this might be coming for a while, but I was holding my breath (didn’t want to jinx anything). But it turns out our very own Web Application Security guru Jeremiah Grossman was named one of Infoworld’s top 25 CTOs for 2007. You can click here for a direct link. This is actually really impressive to me. A year ago almost no one cared about web app sec. It was a niche inside of a niche, but what we’ve been able to accomplish as a community over that year is nothing short of remarkable. And that is in large part to Jeremiah Grossman of Whitehat Security.
I think we owe him a debt of gratitude in many ways. He’s been a public face to our issues, a punching bag for some, and all and all a really nice guy through the process. He’s got a tough job - keeping up with the technology but keeping his eye on the security industry as well. I know we take that kind of thing for granted, but I, for one, appreciate it.
