Grand Cyber Questions and How They Impact Cyber Start-ups

The Cybersecurity Lecture Series at Georgia Tech is a free, one-hour lecture from a thought leader who is advancing the field of information security and privacy. Invited speakers include executives and researchers from Fortune 500 companies, federal intelligence agencies, start-ups, and incubators, as well as Georgia Tech faculty and students presenting their research. Lectures are open to all -- students, faculty, industry, government, or simply the curious.



Ron will discuss some of the harder questions in cyber we've not come to terms with such as quantifying cyber risk and the government's responsibility for keeping us "cyber safe" and how these grand cyber issues impact cyber start-ups. 


Ron Gula started his cybersecurity career as a network penetration tester for the NSA. At BBN, he developed network honeypots to lure hackers and he ran US Internetworking's team of penetration testers and incident responders. As CTO of Network Security Wizards, Ron pioneered the art of network security monitoring and produced the Dragon Intrusion Detection System which was recognized as a market leader by Gartner in 2001. As CEO and co-founder of Tenable Network Security, Ron led the company's rapid growth and product vision from 2002 through 2016. He helped them scale to more than 20,000 customers worldwide, raise $300m in venture capital and achieve revenues in excess of $100m annually which enabled an IPO in 2018. Ron is President at Gula Tech Adventures which focuses on investing and advisement of next-generation cyber-security start-ups companies. Ron was honored and humbled to receive the 2017 Betamore BETA award, be named a 2016 Baltimore Tech 10 leader and a 2013 Maryland entrepreneur of the year award by Ernest and Young. Ron is also a Global Fellow at the Wilson Center and helps educate congressional staff on cyber issues.
