At age 13 Dave Hull was inspired by David Lightman to pursue a career in information security. Puberty had other plans. Years later after giving up his dream of being a foreign correspondent in Soviet Russia and having just failed a course in Pascal, Hull took a job as a Delphi developer for a wholesale liquor distributor, the company parties were apparently amazing, no one can remember. After a year of coding and boozing, Hull went to work at a research university where he spent the next 12 years. During that time he survived the worm wars learning incident response the hard way. Today he hunts evil on Fortune 500 networks and performs computer forensic investigations in support of incident response, civil and criminal matters.
