Laura Bell

Laura Bell likes building secure things and going really really fast, preferably at the same time. A speaker at a range of events such as BlackHat USA, BlueHat Velocity and OSCON, on the subjects of privacy, covert communications, agile security, and security mindset, she is an author for O’Reilly (the people with the animal books) and trains people anywhere they stay still long enough. She founded the most chaotic security company in New Zealand, SafeStack ( and now tries to bring security to some of the fasted moving application development environments on Earth. You can find her at home in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband and daughter.
