Security incident-response vendor Co3 Systems last week announced that security luminary Bruce Schneier is joining the firm as its new chief technology officer. Schneier had previously been working as the CTO of British Telecom (BT).
Schneier is well-known and respected in security circles for his insight and knowledge of cryptography. In 2013, Schneier was among the many security experts who wrote critically about the actions of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).
John Bruce, CEO of Co3, told eWEEK that he has known Schneier for many years, as both men worked for security vendor Counterpane, prior to its acquisition by BT.
