Peter Hesse

EVP & CSO, 10Pearls

Peter has spent his career leveraging his passion for technology and experience in security to develop successful solutions to interesting problems. From an exciting start developing the reference implementation of a certification authority for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), to overcoming obstacles and successfully demonstrating the system that formed the basis of the Federal PKI, Peter has built his reputation tackling complex challenges and explaining them to others. Peter founded and ran the successful information security consulting firm Gemini Security Solutions from 2001-2014. Peter's role at 10Pearls is focused on building security in at every step of the development lifecycle, instead of bolting on security solutions at the end of an effort.
