The Internet Center for Assigned Names and Numbers announced last week it has named Jeff Moss, the founder of DEFCON and the Black Hat Conference, to head its security efforts.

Moss, a self-proclaimed hacker for more than 20 years, will serve as ICANN‘s vice president and chief security officer. His  previous professional roles include serving as director for Secure Computing Corporation, where he established the professional services department in Asia, Australia and the United States. He also worked in the information system security division of Ernst & Young, LLP.

With a bachelor’s  degree in criminal justice from Gonzaga University, Moss currently serves as a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

“I'm looking forward to bringing my skill sets to ICANN,“ Moss said. “Its role in coordinating the global Internet addressing system means that it is positioned to become the leader in identifying and dealing with online threats to the Domain Name System that could affect two billion global Internet users.“
