Nick Selby has been an information security analyst and consultant for more than a decade, and has worked in physical security and intelligence consulting in various roles since 1993. In 2005 he established the information security practice at industry analyst firm The 451 Group, where he conducted in-depth technical briefings and consulted more than 1000 technology vendors. Nick has consulted hundreds of venture-backed startups on understanding their competitive landscape, on product development and feature enhancements, user interface and security. He has consulted US and European governments, more than 80 investment banks, more than 20 venture capital firms; on the investment side, to better understand the technology and landscape of the companies into which they invested, and on the operations side on securing their intellectual property and processes. In 2007 he was appointed VP of Research Operations at 451, where he managed more than 35 technology analysts, developing analysis products and technologies to leverage their insights. Since 2006 Selby has served on the faculty of IANS Research. His work consulting F500 companies on data theft and industrial espionage has placed him at the leading edge of firms helping those under attack by adaptive, persistent adversaries, and he is experienced at managing attacks and architecting recovery networks. Since 2008 he has focused on law enforcement intelligence, and he works part-time as a sworn police officer in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, investigating cyber crime. He teaches continuing legal education on cyber crime for prosecutors in one of the country's largest jurisdictions, and writes the TechTalk column for Law Officer Magazine. He is the CEO of StreetCred Software, which produces software that helps law enforcement serve fugitive arrest warrants through predictive intelligence.
