scobb-profile-200I’m Stephen Cobb and this is my personal website. My professional work – on things like cybersecurity and data privacy – can be found at scobb.net and We Live Security. I tweet about those topics and life in general at @zcobb. From time to time I publish on MediumSlideShare, and ResearchGate. In 2019, I was recognized as an award-winning technologist and I’ve been a CISSP since 1996. My masters in security and risk management was earned at the University of Leicester (Criminology Department). In 2019, I moved from San Diego to Coventry, the city in England where I was born and grew up.

From 2011 to mid-2019 I was Senior Security Researcher at ESET, Europe’s biggest cybersecurity software company. Now I do my own research on my own time, focusing on the nexus of technology, ethics, gender, crime, privacy, and public policy. In my “spare time” I raise awareness of iron overload, the potentially deadly genetic condition, caused by hereditary hemochromatosis, which disabled my partner of 30+ years, Chey Cobb. See Celtic Curse. I also endeavor to speak up for equality and diversity. #HeForShe
