Steve Wilson

Researcher, adviser and writer on identity and privacy.
I am a highly accomplished technology leader, researcher, analyst, innovator, adviser and R&D manager in cyber security. I've got 30 years R&D experience in Australia and the USA, and for 22 years have been dedicated to digital identity and privacy. Personally responsible for numerous breakthroughs in tough e-business problems like anonymity online, identity fraud, PKI, payments, privacy engineering, and national identity frameworks.
