Incident Response Stories – Bill Swearingen – PSW #793

Full episode and show notes



Bill Swearingen
Founding Partner at TRIFIDENT

An industry leader in cyber defense strategy, with over 18 years of experience in both technical and executive cyber security roles. Bill has devoted my career to building and protecting critical infrastructure and Fortune 100 companies from advanced threats. Bill has direct experience from ‘hands on keyboard’ from being on the front lines, and in-depth understanding of the challenges security teams are faced with.

Recognized as an influential figure in the industry, I have established a prominent public profile through my strong public speaking abilities. As a keynote presenter at prestigious events such as BlackHat and DEF CON, I have effectively communicated complex cybersecurity concepts to large audiences, showcasing my expertise and thought leadership.

Bill is a big believer in “be nice” even when things get tough and “the harder you work, the luckier you get.” If you really want to get on my good side, show me something you made. 🙂
