Kate Pearce

Security Consultant
Sunderland, Ma
Catherine (Kate) Pearce is a Senior Security Consultant at Neohapsis (Now a part of Cisco). Kate spends half her time breaking applications and networks, half her time working to secure systems being built, half her time tinkering with standards to find where the designer missed something, and the other half figuring out where she got four halves from. So far, her work has been presented at Blackhat USA and TROOPERS, among others.

Bred, born, and raised in New Zealand, Kate's a Kiwi who was temporarily pulled all the way from Middle Earth to New England a while back. She loves crossed-protocols, exotic failure modes, and long talks on the breach (sorry). While in the USA, she will tolerate a single sheep joke per person - as long as it's targeted at Australians.
