About Me

Jack Danahy

Security Advisor & Evangelist

In the online world, we are sharing more and more, and we have a responsibility to protect each other.

After building two security companies and selling them, I look around, and not much has changed. For sure, not much is better.

Security and privacy have to become responsibilities we all take seriously for our organizations, our relationships, and ourselves.

It is our new social contract.
