Welcoming Industry Veterans to Our Newly-Formed Board

I’m thrilled to announce our newly-formed industry advisory board and welcome to it two luminaries of the industry, each bringing their own unique perspective. They will be helping the team at Bright to continue delivering a cutting-edge, developer-focused application security platform to market.

Here’s a quick introduction:

Tanya Janca, Founder & CEO at WeHackPurple Academy

Tanya, known to many as SheHacksPurple, is the best-selling author of Alice and Bob Learn Application Security. She is also the founder of We Hack Purple, an online learning academy, community, and podcast that revolves around creating secure software. 

Tanya has been coding and working in IT for over twenty years, won countless awards, and has been everywhere from startups to public service to tech giants (Microsoft, Adobe, & Nokia). She has worn many hats: startup founder, pentester, CISO, AppSec Engineer, and software developer. She is an award-winning public speaker, active blogger and streamer and has delivered hundreds of talks and training sessions on six continents. She values diversity, inclusion, and kindness, which shines through in her countless initiatives. 

Ofer Maor, Co-Founder & CTO at Mitiga 

Ofer is the CTO & co-founder of Mitiga where he’s building a groundbreaking Cloud Incident Response platform. He has more than 25 years of experience in cybersecurity and entrepreneurship and was previously the CTO and founder of Seeker (acquired by Synopsys), where he invented IAST, a next-generation application security testing technology, currently used by some of the largest organizations in the world. 

Prior to Seeker Ofer was the CTO and founder of Hacktics (acquired by EY), and a founding employee at Imperva. He is also active in the cybersecurity community and has served as a Global Board Member at OWASP.

One of the most critical aspects Ofer and Tanya have already been working with us on is directly related to our core mission: empowering developers to build secure applications — fast. And with that in mind, I invite you all to sign up for a free Bright account. Once you do, you’re minutes away from securing your app.

I’m sure I speak on behalf of the entire team when I say we can’t wait to get to work with Ofer and Tanya, as they help take Bright to the next level.

Ofer, Tanya — welcome aboard!
